      Great Company to Work for

      Mar 11, 2021 - Registered Nurse in Cary, NC

      Pros

      This is a great company to work for, people complain about the benefits (insurance) however, it's about like everywhere else. High premium (although I never thought it was that bad), but never had to worry about when I used the insurance. Hourly pay for a registered nurse is the best in the Triangle area and the have a 403B plan that is matching.

      Cons

      Lots of changes are made with little regards to how it will affect the bedside nurse. Communication could be better with management and bedside nursing.

      WakeMed Cary ED

      Feb 25, 2021 - Clinical Nurse II in Cary, NC
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Very few pros with this emergency department. A good, hardworking staff on night shift, competitive pay.

      Cons

      During the interview, management did not disclose any information regarding on call hour requirements. There is poor staffing at all times, low employee morale, unsafe environment for patients and employees. Every shift, patients are lined up in the hallway where they are faced with poor patient care. At times, we even have Covid positive patients waiting in the waiting room with other patients that do not have it. Also, if you are a new mom that breastfeeds, they do not support breaks for pumping.
