    I have been working at Carolinas HealthCare System full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    PTO accrues from day 1
    401k vested from day 1
    You keep seniority when moving from one job title to another (as long as you stay part time or full time)
    Clinical positions offer overtime for those who want extra money
    Can hold positions at more than one hospital or in more than one department depending on your job title
    Opportunities to grow within the company

    Cons

    Insurance isn't that great
    Pay is below average since CHS controls the healthcare market in the Charlotte area
    HR is extremely slow, especially during the hiring/transfer process
    PTO requests can be difficult to get approved depending on the department. Usually have to find someone to cover a shift for you or just suck it up and work the shift
    All departments are typically understaffed and usually only fully staffed by staff working lots of overtime
    As with all hospitals, clinical staff are spread entirely too thin

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit giving yourselves big bonuses and use that money to pay your staff more
    Telling us you appreciate us and actually showing it are two different things. Your email says one thing but my paycheck and benefits say another

    I have been working at Carolinas HealthCare System full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Job security, insurance, growing company

    Cons

    Poor management at several of the locations I have worked. HR is unwilling to help unhappy employees. Minimal pay increases with increasing work load each year and constant under staffing issues. Organization rules are extremely strict and some are just ridiculous. Most depts don't allow overtime.Aside from Novant system there are no other options for medical jobs because CHS owns everything in this area. Therefore they can treat employees indifferently and pay less than deserved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR needs to work with employees to ensure happiness. Hire competent and adequate management. Hire people in that position that will deal with problems rather than avoiding problems and hoping they will go away on their own . Be more willing to help employees when they seek assistance.
