  5. "Looks great on the outside..."

    StarStarStarStarStar

    Pros

    The CEO is personable, humble, approachable, and visionary. Many talented and compassionate clinicians practice here. Salaries are generally good for clinical roles. Cannot speak to nonclinical experience.

    Cons

    Should never have partnered with the UNC system. The hospital was a much more desirable and rewarding place to practice beforehand. There have been a number of instances since becoming a UNC facility in which iron fisted edicts from above have led to "big brother"-like decisions and policies that have adversely impacted morale and inter- and interdepartmental relationships. I have often heard these complaints within earshot of patients. Moreover, clinicians working in staffing roles below middle management are so afraid they are being pushed out, backstabbing and scrambling for position are becoming more common. It has been very sad to watch as someone who has worked for Rex for close to 20 years.

    Advice to Management

    To UNC leadership: Catch a clue from the values and practices that made Rex great before you - profitability, leading edge patient care, friendly, compassionate, motivated staff.
    To UNC Rex leadership (including nursing, pharmacy, medical leadership) - advocate for your people and return to the values that made Rex great. Listen to the little guys working in the trenches of patient care more. UNC is pushing your best asset (good people) away

    Pros

    I always felt valued here. Great co-workers and my manager was wonderful. Rex is a great place to work. Had I not moved I would not have left!

    Cons

    I truly did not have a negative experience while at Rex. If ever even a misunderstanding it was worked out.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Great food and free parking

    Cons

    Micromanaging to the max at this institution. Nursing directors' agendas are forced upon coworkers. Their involvement in "shared governance" takes away from the very objectives of having an effective "shared governance" within a hospital. Leadership is condescending and thinks of staff as incapable of being clinical experts. They pat themselves on the back for the accomplishments, which is kind of good, but they turn a blind eye to real opportunities for grown and improvement. Not innovative at all. Reactive rather than proactive style, which is not good in this ever-changing healthcare climate. If you are looking for a place to grow professionally, this is not the place... yet. They may improve in the future. Also, very disorganized. Poor customer service within the institution (payroll, HR, etc.)... I think the staff dissatisfaction is everywhere and comes out during interactions with other persons from other departments. High staff turnover everywhere, which is always a bad sign.

    Advice to Management

    Look outward to what other institutions are doing in order to have high quality, evidence-based care while maintaining high staff satisfaction. Don't just assume because parking is free and food is good that staff will automatically choose Rex over all the other wonderful hospitals in the area. Staff satisfaction has a lot to do with growth, opportunity, and feeling empowered as well as challenged.

    Pros

    Good benefits, Advancement opportunities for clinical staff

    Cons

    Since UNC has become more dominant in processes, the once family-like culture has diminished and taken on a more "corporate" atmosphere.

    Admin advancement is minimal

    Advice to Management

    Strengthen communication & follow up when new processes are enacted.
