    Pros

    Great atmosphere, good coworkers. The employees are there for each other and work hard to secure our positions. I really enjoy working in the community.

    Cons

    The health care benefits can be expensive for some nurses, however, the department and company worked very hard to secure some type of health care coverage.

    Advice to Management

    Management informs of any work changes. The work can seem overwhelming at first but it is a great community of nurses at CHA.

    I worked at Cabarrus Health Alliance part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to start your career. Most recruitments are done from internal. Hence room to advance. Great opportunity to serve the community

    Cons

    Very political. You must know someone inside to get a job here. Lack of diversity. Good old white people club.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all applicants fairly.

    "This is the best place to work in NC if you are a public health professional."

    Pros

    We are a public health authority, not a traditional public health department. This allows for more creative programming, funding sources and community involvement without county commissioners making health decisions for the community we serve. We are also able to offer programming out of county.

    Cons

    Diversity is not evident in leadership and senior management. Worse, mentoring and grooming of employees for leadership roles is limited to Caucasians and local friends of the CEO. Even interns are chosen based on who they know. Typically sons and daughters of physicians and friends of the CEO and daughters and sons of friends of the CEO. The CEO is visionary in regards to programming, but is "good 'ol boyish" in promotion, mentoring, grooming and fast tracking to key roles.

    Advice to Management
