    I worked at WakeMed Health and Hospitals full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The biggest upside to working at WakeMed was the work. It was my first job out of school and people through me right in. I learned an unbelievable amount.

    Coworkers were cool and management was also quite flexible with scheduling which made working there pleasant.

    Cons

    Non-existent raises, crappy 3 year vesting in all 401k matches, don't pay vacation when you quit etc. Also bad health insurance for a hospital system.

    Advice to Management

    Work on getting your raises and benefits up or retention will continue to be an issue.

    Pros

    Great place for students and it will help you grow as a person. Dealing with different personalities will build character. Work/Life Balance is great and honestly that is the only reason I am still at Wakemed but it isnt my final destination.

    Cons

    Be prepared for clicks and people who have 2 faces. This company has a way to try and get people together but all do not participate in the Wake Way.I have met nice people but my instincts tell me to not trust a soul in that place. A lot of tattling goes on and no one tells you if they have a problem with what you do first. Also, you have to be there for a year to advance.
