    I have been working at WakeMed Health and Hospitals full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The CV division really cares about their staff and the nurses are treated very well. Good salary & benefits as well as excellent working conditions.

    You may have to float to other units during low census on your home unit.

    I have been working at WakeMed Health and Hospitals full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    I have been working at WakeMed Health and Hospitals full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free parking, retirement match, profit sharing, reasonable insurance premiums. Dental/vision is great! Flexible spending account is nice, PTO accrues quickly, overall company atmosphere is good. Fair pay rates. Tuition reimbursement available after 1 year of employment

    Cons

    The only challenge I can think of is that we only get 5 occurrences/absences per year. This can be challenging for a single parent or during cold/flu season. But there are opportunities to make up absences so that’s a positive.

    Advice to Management

    Show appreciation to all your employees but particularly those who have been there 20+ years. That level of dedication is getting harder to find.

    If there is a high turn over rate for a specific department/clinic. Please look in to it. Sometimes its not the staff its the higher ups!
