    Pros

    They offer some on the job training for advancement and personal growth. Management is great to work for and have open door policies.

    Cons

    Some challenges of working here are staffing, or slack of staff, micromanagement, as well as a very strict time off/sick day policy that proves challenging with children.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider revising time-off/sick day policies.

    Healthcare with a heart

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC

    I worked at Rex Healthcare as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    What makes Rex a great environment is the people who work there. Even with my intern status, I was still greeted by staff with warm and welcoming smiles and felt comfortable spending much of my summer vacation at the hospital. If ever I needed the healthcare services that Rex provides, I would feel completely comfortable in choosing them on the patient level as well.

    Cons

    At the intern level, I didn't really experience any negatives while working at Rex. Everyone in my department was willing to help me learn and expand my skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for trusting your interns with important projects and learning opportunities.

    Perfectly positioned to take on the next generation in Healthcare

    I have been working at Rex Healthcare full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Leadership meetings quarterly allow everyone access to internal networking. There is open communication and the expectation of excellent care for anyone that enters.

    Cons

    Rapid expansion has negatively impacted the culture of this long-time community hospital. Benefit package is excellent but salary is not competitive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As REX moves into the next era of healthcare, remember those who helped you get there. Consider changing benefit structure to increase actual pay.

    Pros

    Very flexible with work schedule, great benefits. Pay is competitive.

    Cons

    Parking is the biggest problem with Rex. Visitors as well as employees are stuck with little to no spaces available.

    Keep doing what you are doing, and Rex will continue to be a great place to work.

    Pros

    Rex is overall a great place to work. It is family friendly and leaders try to make decisions that are in the best interest if employees and the community.

    Cons

    As with any job, you have to make sure you have a good leader and good peers. This can very from department to department but overall is pretty good. Sometimes there's a tendency to put in experienced leaders in positions before they are ready.

    I have been working at Rex Healthcare full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been working for Rex Healthcare for six years now. The benefits are great. The overall atmosphere at Rex is laid back and friendly. I actually enjoy coming to work most days. Overall, this is a great place to work.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge thus far is working with so many different people. At times it can be overwhelming to try to fit in with such a diverse crowd. My manager at times seems as if she does not know what is going on within the organization. I feel as if the units are so unorganized. We all need to be on the same page and know exactly what to expect in every situation. When I have a question about getting a task complete, I should not have to ask five different people in order to get an answer. There should be someone or a notebook that explains what should be done or how to handle the situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel that all of the upper managers should work on becoming more knowledgeable especially now when we are doing so much changing throughout the organization. There is a lack of continuity throughout and people who do not have degrees should get treated with more respect. At times, people with a degree tend to look down on those who do not have one. We are all people. Respect should be shown to everyone no matter what their situation. The biggest piece of advice would have to be for the managers to step up and help to improve their units. Let's get organized.

    Former Employee - Information Technology in Raleigh, NC

    I worked at Rex Healthcare full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I was with Rex Healthcare for just under 14 years. During my time there I got to see how Rex not only dealt with their patients, but with their employees... compassion. Rex for the most part feels like a 'family'. There are many employees that have been with Rex for well over 20 years. One of my users just celebrated her 45 year anniversary.

    Cons

    While Rex can seem like a 'family' type of environment, it is slowly growing toward the 'corporate' feel. While I do feel a business has to make decisions *for* the business... it should not disregard what these decisions will do to their employees. Making enterprise-wide decisions without thinking of the effect on employees reduces employee morale and increases turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As Rex promotes 'work / life' balance, it should remember 'corporate / employee' balance. It is its employees that HELP it to have a successful bottom line.
