Novant Health is a great organization to work for.

Surgical Technologist (Former Employee)
Charlotte, NC

I worked at Novant Health full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGreat benefits and salary. Great working environment. The administrative staff are excellent and really focus on a employee relations.

ConsIn my opinion, there are not too many cons to working at Novant Health. The only negative I can think of is that there are only two hospital systems in the area where I live because both systems are so big. So it doesn't give much of a choice where to work.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at each employee's potential and harvest that potential. As a result, you will have many happy employees that will love their job and will look forward to each day of work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Their mission sounds good, but that is it

Buyer (Former Employee)
Winston-Salem, NC

I worked at Novant Health full-time for more than 8 years

ProsAccrual of paid time off, company sponsored picnics, inclusion of family at events

ConsDictator-esque management. Trusted to spend millions of dollars annually, but have to punch the clock, not one minute over or under or written up. Horrible insurance/benefit/cost for working for a healthcare organization. Drama rich, nepotism and back stabbing abound.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake time to hear your employees concerns. Occurrence management is not consistent - either use it or discard it - do not let the manager decide who to use it on. Take a real look at overhead departments and determine if best practices.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
