    I have been working at WakeMed Health and Hospitals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Pay, professional environment, stable work field. They support you furthering your education. Do your job and no worries about job security. Good place to retire if you are content with just pay and not advancing.

    Cons

    Unstable middle management, not much opportunity for growth, don't invest in there good employees that want to excel. Employee process support is a little lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the employees who want to remain with the company. There is a lot of talent and expertise that are overlooked among current employees who want to climb the latter, from various backgrounds of who can help build the wake way. Get to know who works for you and what they want as a future in the company. Don't be the company that trains employees for other companies to take advantage of the skill that was built in house. It often does a world of good to see you or your co-workers excel within the company. It builds motivation as well as hope.

    Pros

    Satisfactory Salary. The 403b plan is great. Ability to advance or transition into various roles, I've been here for six years and I've held three different positions. You can even hold 2 positions at once with managers approval (ideal for supplemental workers).

    Cons

    Medical benefits premiums have increased and coverage could be better. The number of canceled shifts has increased over the past few months.
