    I have been working at Novant Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people are genuinely hard working and care about their patients. Benefits are decent. Company claims to have many values..

    Cons

    Poor communication from management to staff. Terrible compensation. No merit raises, or self performance bonuses. Never a thank you or recognition of your work performance. The only time you hear from your manager is when you are getting written up. Always short staffed, mandatory overtime. Company continually adds more to work burden. Management always blaming corporate for their inability to get things done. Attitude of management is that the worker is dispensable, and you should be thankful to have a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unfortunately this is the new reality and the face of Corporate America. For as much as corporate talks about a remarkable patient experience they neglect their employees experience. Continuing to keep wages depressed while making millions in profits. Why should anyone working full time for this corporation have to go on food stamps to make ends meet? That is the reality of many of the front line workers.

    I have been working at Novant Health part-time (more than a year)

    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

    pay is decent, lots of opportunity to advance

    Cons

    upper management is a fan of favoritism, the what you know not who you know mentality is not one that is embraced here

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop promoting your friends and family and recognize the people who are actually getting theowrk done
