    Pros

    Friendly, salary is competitive, seems to care about the community

    Cons

    The healthcare isn't the best, we have a high deductible plan. Focus seems to be on numbers and HCAHPS scores instead of the patients.

    Pros

    I love working with the doctors I work with. The hours are great.

    Cons

    The pay range scale is bogus. You're not paid your worth. (This seems to be the norm most places)

    Advice to Management

    If you worked for 10 years but only made $2.00 more than the day you started with the company how would you feel?

    Pros

    Well managed to stay competitive. Organization expanding and have not had lay offs, unlike others in the area. Progressive quality and change management.

    Cons

    Huge organization, can be political, excellent for advancement if your a man, good if your a woman.

    Advice to Management

    Fix our benefits. Horrible insurance coverage. Terrible HR department both in recruitment and supporting administrative needs. Education monies are delayed months. Give those budgets to the department heads, so they can pay out and wait for reimbursement. You say you want people to further their education, but have no differential for those degrees. Huge difference in the way men are promoted and compensated.

    I worked at Carolinas HealthCare System full-time

    Pros

    I am proud I worked for CHS.

    Cons

    Watch your "leadership" and their personal wants.

    Advice to Management

    There should be checks and balances on your "leadership" before they end an employee's long, long term successful employment.

    Pros

    There is a culture of caring at CHS. I always feel like leadership has the patients' experience in mind and is always striving to impact the community positively. My management team is fabulous - they truly care about us and want us to succeed. We work hard, but the reward is great.

    Cons

    It's such a large organization, so can sometimes be hierarchical.
