    I have been working at Novant Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are ok. However, for all the crap they put us through the benefits should be equal everywhere in the company. If I go to a hospital in Winston Salem or to an office in Charlotte but it is not. Oh this is the pros section.....I got a purple shirt

    Cons

    Money, Money, Money!!! I have worked in health care for several years and never understood how the money worked within healthcare until I started working with this company. I work in a small office and we have a certain patient number we have to maintain or we loose money thus we are turning patients in and out so fast we can't keep up. It makes me almost want to change careers. We don't have a chance to even listen to the patient which breaks my heart. That is very important in healthcare. With Novant, especially if you work for a small clinic its MONEY OVER PATIENTS!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Money isn't everything. In fact down the line you will probably loose a lot of valuable Nurses, Physicians, and sadly patients because of money. If money is that big of an issue you might be surprised in the amount of people that might even work part time to down size for a while or work at other clinics or hospitals. There are other options instead of being a bully

    I worked at Novant Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Other than the people I worked with, there aren't any pros that i can think of

    Cons

    Experience doesn't mean anything to Novant, the more degrees and the better that you know how to suck up to upper management I'd the name of the game. People who spread rumors and lies are the people who get listened to, and their "truth" get honest, decent, hardworking people called on the carpet at least weekly until the innocent person is written up, gets fed up, and leaves. These same "truthbringers" are also the ones who get promoted over the ones with actual experience. Units are understaffed, staff is overworked, and the supposed not for profit organization only concerns itself with their bottom line. Administration makes the decisions without knowing or caring how it will truly affect patient safety. Finally, their shared governance is a joke, it's there so they can apply for and get Magnet status.

    Advice to Management

    Start at the top and clean house. Find people to run your hospitals who know how to listen to its staff, make staff satisfaction as important as your patient satisfaction.

    Pros

    Novant Health provides great insurance benefits for employees. Although this is a healthcare compnay, there are many job opportunities for non-clinical persons. The atmosphere in my department is relaxed and is very team oriented. There are many locations in the state of North Carolina, so options are extensive.

    Cons

    There could be more room for advancement.

    Pros

    I liked My colleges, I liked my contact with customers/ patients. I liked the fact that I reported directly to the Director of Nursing and the COO. I liked the fact that I had a global view of the whole facility.

    Cons

    Administration at highest levels makes poor choices. Most changes are based on productivity and reimbursement not acuity. The hours take their toll on your personal life and health. Many poor choices on advancement of some employees. The trend at the present is to remove long term employees that have higher salaries and benefits for newer employees that just say "yes" and lack critical thinking skills. Recent layoff of 400 people was unexpected, and the estimates of total loss of jobs is not accurate- few people are being offered similar positions elsewhere, typically it is a newly created position with less compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management focus should be less on their bonuses and perks and focus more on the people that actually care for their customers. Make better choices on advancement of some employees. Make the employees at the lower levels feel like they are important and being heard.
