Pros

Great working environment that focuses on teamwork. For the most part, employees seem to pride themselves on patient-centered care; they take the mission to heart and truly want to aid patients and their families in whatever way possible. Community involvement is encouraged. Another great aspect is growth from within. It seems like managers would rather grow and promote employees who are interested in growing before considering outside candidates. It really is a community. The benefits are decent, but they do start day 1 which is nice. Another great benefit is discounted membership to the Vidant Wellness Center. It is the first gym that I've been a member of where I didn't have to wait for equipment, even during the peak 5pm-8pm hours. It's also really clean. The employee pharmacy is awesome! Generics are often 5 dollars or less. They also have bandaids, cough drops, diapers, etc. for crazy low prices.

Cons

It really is a community, therefore there are negative employees and departments and managers that don't embrace the mission. However, there is new leadership and they seem to be making positive changes. Parking is an issue, you will get ticketed and booted and it will be expensive if you park outside of your designated area. Your designated area will be far from the hospital unless you work nights or are a physician or PA. And while the cafeteria has great options, it is very crowded from 12-1.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work, don't get comfortable with our successes. Keep pushing to be the best even if it is risky.

    Pros

    slow pace, friendly people (at least to your face), fexible schedules, you dont have to keep uptodate on current things

    Cons

    sr. management claims to want to improve or grow, but they strongly fight against new ideas or those that dont agree with their outdated ways, if youre good at kissing butts youll do fine, the miracle is that they still provide fairly average care

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn from your mistakes, stop repeating them over and over and over and over, promote people for experience and leadership insted of asskissing,

    Pros

    If you're a nurse you have plenty of autonomy. Largest employer that is close to the beach. Great college in the city.

    Cons

    If you're in any other field other than healthcare worker such as IT, Accountant, etc...etc....there's not enough jobs to move up. Over-saturated area for anything other than direct healthcare workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    After working in at least 3 departments I would have to say that radiology is the best department of the three I've been in. They like to promote from within when possible and are extremely fair. You get what you work for!
