    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.

    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.

    Great benefits of course. Great skill challenges.

    Cons

    Management!!! Pay was sucky--Doctors are very condescending and uptight!

    Advice to Management

    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!
