I have been working at Vidant Health as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Professional Environment. Friendly co-workers. Great pay. Management will work around class hours (if you are an intern). You have the freedom to move around to different teams within the IS department.

Cons

Minimal training. You learn as you go, for some people this may not be an issue. After you learn the work, it becomes very repetitive (depending on which functional department you are assigned.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None.

    UHS was a nice organization to work for, the new-and-not-so-improved Vidant, not so much.

    I worked at Vidant Health full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked for a rural affiliate. Outstanding nursing staff - very tight - know what they're doing - a real "family". It almost made everything else bearable (see cons). The specialists at the "parent" hospital in Greenville were easy to contact and very helpful.

    Cons

    New central management is completely disengaged from what it is like to staff their smaller affiliates in the "ruralist of areas" - and how professionally isolated it can be. This particular Vidant affiliate has a history of treating primary care physicians - particularly Pediatricians - very badly. In this era of shortages, they appear to believe that the pool of good doctors who want to work pretty-much on their own in rural areas is bottomless. Meanwhile MD's who book the OR can do no wrong. Hard work and loyalty does not matter at all to the senior management "team", and concern about employee's well-being is lip-service. My call load was abusive/ridiculous, there was no opportunity for advancement, and management was oblivious to the difficulties their MD's faced practicing Pediatric medicine in the middle of nowhere with limited resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to be the Mayo Clinic. Be instead of seem. Listen to the boots-on-the-ground. Reward hard work and loyalty. Learn how to communicate instead of letting your corporate lawyers dictate/bully policy/protocols. Treat the doctors and nurses you already have well/with respect - and pay them what they're worth. Get rid of about three layers of middle-management.
