    Pros

    Great benefits, 24 hour gym, upper management really cares. They paid all their employees when we were out of work due to a direct hurricane hit.

    Cons

    Individual departments are not all as healthy as the overall company.

    Pros

    Benefits
    Gym
    Self-Scheduling
    They have increased pay recently to try to get closer to the national average (getting closer)

    Cons

    Inability to RETAIN employees- employees don't feel VALUED
    Company doesn't match 401K/403b
    Most units don't have the option to work other shifts other than 12h 7-7 (i.e. 8h rotating throughout the day based on census)
    Staffing is based on census rather than acuity (looking at cost of employees and efficiency rather than safety and well-being of employees and patients)
    Lack of support from management and upper level supervision

    Advice to Management

    Stop fudging the annual reviews to make it look/ sound like the organization is doing flawlessly according to your employees. There are many more unsatisfied and unhappy employees than there are content one's. The new report that NHRMC is in the top 50 employers? Who did that interview and where did those numbers come from? The organization as a whole is so money driven and focused that you're losing sight of the individuality of your workers, who each have a voice and want and deserve to be heard. This is why you continue to lose some of your most valuable employees to other large organizations within the ILM area to your competitors or even moving outside and going elsewhere. You should be focused on your employees, who make up this community, just as much as the patients do, if you're going to make that the main part of your new "mission statement."

    I have been working at New Hanover Regional Medical Center part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    “You get to live at the beach’

    Cons

    The mentioned “pros” are what they tell you when you ask why such low pay. Company has changed from a person centered to business model. Team work changed to bosses and hired pay. People employed there are great, but pressure to bring in the dollar has resulted in a stressful environment and lack of genuine concern for helping those in need.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on actually providing appropriate care and maintaining a safe work environment rather than seeking to turn more profit.

    I worked at New Hanover Regional Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    good benefits, over time offered all the time, culture there sucks-nurses don't help each other out, it's like they're all competing for "nurse of the year", 2 CNA's on the floor for 42 patients.

    Cons

    they will work you to death, 4 new admits on your shift, don't match contribution to 403B, not supported well from management, float you to other floors constantly or to the ED inpatient area

    Advice to Management

    just because wilmington is a coastal town and you are the only hospital, don't act like it is such a privilege to work there and then pay less than industry standard. the old ceo is gone so stop worshiping him like a god

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Yearly evals offer monetary growth opportunitues. The org is really stepped up in the community to be leaders in health care equity not just equality that makes me proud to work there. Health care, just like a bike, is not a ive size fits all. (Jack Barto is no longer CEO, I'm rating John Gizdic)

    Cons

    Everyone is not treated equally. If you are a grade A employee you will get more and more work until you're in the verge of breaking while others sit and do nothing or barely work their hours.

    Advice to Management

    Work under a manager that holds their employees accountable.
