Excellent Place to Work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Winston-Salem, NC

ProsSenior leadership makes decisions that are tough but are in the best long-term interest of the company. High potential for advancement, lots of opportunity to move within the company. Established HR department that truly implements the company's mission, vision and values. Best in class corporate training and developmental programs. Salaries seem to be on par or better than the industry average.

ConsAn established HR department can be a double edged sword. In some cases, Novant has leaders in place that lack true leadership ability. Leadership positions seem to be filled based on tenure, not proven success and potential for growth. There should be more flexibility in place to re-assign ineffective leaders, regardless of tenure with the company. Also, Novant's tuition reimbursement policy speaks volumes about how little they value higher education. The current policy is to reimburse only $1500 per year, enough to cover a few books but nothing else.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe business environment is changing and your business practices should mirror this. Identify and promote employees that are great problem solvers and bring innovate solutions to their job; this is the skill set that enhances efficiency and effectiveness. Employees with years of institutional knowledge should be valued but should not be kept in leadership positions solely based on tenure. Develop employees based on their track record and potential for growth, not age or tenure. Additionally, many employees aren't financially able to pursue advanced degrees due to the poor tuition reimbursement policy. If you truly want your employees to grow consider investing in this program as other firms do. If you don't invest in this program high potential employees will leave for competitors that do.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Horrible front line management, obvious nepotism, inadequate leaders

    Non Catalog Buyer (Current Employee) Winston-Salem, NC

    I have been working at Novant Health


    Pros: Their vacation plan is great - you accrue vacation time with every pay… Cons: Infrastructure is not grown to stay with current level of acquisitions. Both tangible assets (computers, networking, medical diagnostics, furniture, building maintenance) and employee… Advice to Senior Management: The mission is great, but as a member of a community where you have a huge presence, the "remarakable patient experience" is purely a motto… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
