    Pros

    If you can survive this environment, know you are a champion and can survive anywhere else.
    Benefit of big company brand and recognition paired with community feel in a small hospital.

    Cons

    Confusingly fluctuating, overlapping administrative reponsibilites amongst senior staff and therefore difficult to track accountability or properly utilize chain of command. Inconsistent staffing policies. Lack of support for employees. Nepotism, favoritism, and pretty much every other negative "ism" you can expect to find in a "soap opera-type" environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make sure you are experienced in the area in which you are trying to lead. A person cannot effectively direct staff or serve as a resource if they lack experience and expertise.

    Pros

    Good Benefits and you will enjoy meeting different people (patients from different walks of life) And the doctors are not as bad as people make them out to be they have very caring and generous Doctors and some of the staff.

    Cons

    Each unit is very cliched up. There is no diversity here the best thing to do is just keep to yourself do your job and come home and try your best not to get caught up in any of the lies spread around this place. The culture of the is obvious they are very insecure and Elites s.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lying to your employees just tell them the truth so that you can work as a team and make the work flow easier and not as stressful for you all. Stop showing favoritism and doing unethical things to cover up your mistake you are in a hospital where people lives are in your hands.

    I worked at Novant Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to grow and the work culture was good. They had days where employees were rewarded.

    Cons

    Management has a lot of problems between them. Some aren't trained well or are friendly with one another and get promoted that way. More concerned with money than the patient. Quite a bit of micromanaging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back off of the staff who are working and focus on those who are not. Consider patients and staff as some are both. Some staff are there because they enjoy healthcare and helping people and are more valuable to you than the income you seek.

    Former Employee - Patient Services Coordinator II in Winston-Salem, NC

    I worked at Novant Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company provides good benefits and working conditions. They encourage further education. If your clinic met the marks that they set for you, such as patient satisfaction, timely appointments etc. each employee would receive a bonus. This was on top of the regular company profit bonuses they give annually.

    Cons

    Company did seem to be very profit driven. Collecting co-payments was a MUST and if you failed to do so you would get written up. Administration needs to take employee complaints more seriously. The family clinic where I worked went through 4 front desk people in the less than 3 years that I was there. They left because of dissatisfaction with management. There were so many changes being made, no consistency or true leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More positive and consistent leadership.
