    Productive

    Temporary Technical (Current Employee)
    Greenville, NC

    ProsProfessional Environment. Friendly co-workers. Great pay. Management will work around class hours (if you are an intern). You have the freedom to move around to different teams within the IS department.

    ConsMinimal training. You learn as you go, for some people this may not be an issue. After you learn the work, it becomes very repetitive (depending on which functional department you are assigned.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to practice nursing for 1 year and then move on to better avenues of nursing advancement.

    RN, Staff Nurse (Former Employee)
    Greenville, NC

    ProsGreat benefits and various work enviroments. choose carefully and make sure you talk to staff as to their likes of the department you are interviewing for a position.

    ConsManagement manages only from the office.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to get out and talk to staff on all shifts; don't expect staff to get their certifications, if the ANM do not have theirs. Also quit penalizing folks whom have walked the talk, and management is still talking, only on computer, not in person face-to-face.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not bad, not great.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Greenville, NC

    ProsGood employer, decent extra benefits. The coworkers were great. Most people work together to get the job done and make sure patients stay safe.

    ConsLow pay for non-clinical roles. Benefits are disappearing. There are a lot of folks feeling taken advantage of. The message from leadership is be thankful you have a job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhy do you think the best folks leave?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Lack of good leadership and forward thinkers

    IS Department (Former Employee)

    ProsThe healthcare staff will do their best to help everyone

    ConsThe IS department needs a complete overhaul from the top down.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSr., Management IS staff needs to retire. Check into your turnover rate of over the last 5 years in IS. and you may find that the ones that could have help to turned things around got frustrated and left.

    UHS was a nice organization to work for, the new-and-not-so-improved Vidant, not so much.

    Pediatrician (Former Employee)

    ProsI worked for a rural affiliate. Outstanding nursing staff - very tight - know what they're doing - a real "family". It almost made everything else bearable (see cons). The specialists at the "parent" hospital in Greenville were easy to contact and very helpful.

    ConsNew central management is completely disengaged from what it is like to staff their smaller affiliates in the "ruralist of areas" - and how professionally isolated it can be. This particular Vidant affiliate has a history of treating primary care physicians - particularly Pediatricians - very badly. In this era of shortages, they appear to believe that the pool of good doctors who want to work pretty-much on their own in rural areas is bottomless. Meanwhile MD's who book the OR can do no wrong. Hard work and loyalty does not matter at all to the senior management "team", and concern about employee's well-being is lip-service. My call load was abusive/ridiculous, there was no opportunity for advancement, and management was oblivious to the difficulties their MD's faced practicing Pediatric medicine in the middle of nowhere with limited resources.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop trying to be the Mayo Clinic. Be instead of seem. Listen to the boots-on-the-ground. Reward hard work and loyalty. Learn how to communicate instead of letting your corporate lawyers dictate/bully policy/protocols. Treat the doctors and nurses you already have well/with respect - and pay them what they're worth. Get rid of about three layers of middle-management.
