    I worked at UNC Health Care full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I loved the people I worked with and the work that I did. My healthcare benefits were great as well as the PTO.

    Cons

    My position was not paid well for what they did compared to other positions, I was in direct patient care I saw a lot of emotionally draining things as well as miracles this was all hard on my body and mind and the people at starbucks made more an hour than I did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your aides better they really do deserve it. We have majority of the interaction with your patients and we take on a lot at work as well as carry it home with us, our patients are like our family members which is why the employees at UNC are so compassionate.

    I have been working at UNC Health Care part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    In my department I am very pleased with the leadership. My boss is committed to helping me learn. Since I'm a student my hours are very flexible.

    Cons

    A lot of bureaucracy exists in trying to get anything done or make needed changes. It is difficult to get a raise despite your experience level and high performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Limit bureaucracy where possible

    I have been working at UNC Health Care full-time

    Pros

    I worked as a Registered Nurse for UNC. Being an academic medical center, there was always new and interesting work, new faces, and lots of opportunities to become involved. These could be a pro or a con depending on your approach to your career. The benefits were what is expected with state employment- while the health insurance was not the more excellent ever, it was good- and very inexpensive.

    Cons

    Management for our unit was poor. Very frequent complaints made about inappropriate behavior to upper level management and HR with no improvement. Additionally, the lack of progress within the unit was often a reflection in management style. But what better to unite staff than a common "enemy"?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have greater accountability for unit managers and transparency with staff.

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

    Pros

    Management supportive on units, upper management out of touch with realities of patient care. Opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Health benefits awful considering you are working in their system and using their facilities and treatment providers. Poor teamwork and morale on units. Benefits and compensation overall not competitive to other large University Healthcare provider in area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Front line management does their best to advocate and care for their staff. Highest level management keeps making cuts in benefits and adding additional expenses to employees (such as new required fee for night shift parking) all while yearly raises do not keep up with cost of living and are each year are threatened they won't be available at all. Many of the aforementioned are making well over 6 figures here and have significantly better benefits, healthcare, retirement, etc. It's the lower and middle class of this company that pays their salaries.
