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

    Pros

    I have been here for 7 years, and the staff here was very welcoming to me as a new hire. I had worked other places before as a new grad and never got much support from management and other nurses at those places like I did when I got here. They had some issues with the former CEO Bill Atkinson, but they fired him and the current CEO, Donald Gintzing is great. He actually gets out of the office and talks to the staff, and is very personable. All staff here really like each other. It's a teaching hospital that's not attached to a university, but no issues with the residents and attendings like other hospitals in the area. They value your input as a nurse.

    Cons

    financially still a little unstable. pay is increasing but not keeping up with national average, and no wakeshare (cost sharing bonus) for the last few years-Bill Atkinson ran us into the red a bit. Clinical ladder (NPDP) program is a little arduous to keep up with. Management has no problem contacting you when you are off, which can get annoying.

    Advice to Management

    please find ways to limit contact when employees are not working.

    Pay is low, but my experience shows that some of the best companies are best for other reasons. Wake Med is exceptional in its commitment to its employees and patients.

    Listen when employees speak a little better

    Pros

    WakeMed is slowly but surly increasing it's market competition. By pairing up with Duke for Cancer Care and Heart Care, we have the best of the best coming together to provide excellent healthcare services to our community.

    Cons

    It takes a while to get things changed. Close-minded folks work here. The only career opportunities are mostly for nurses and physicians.

    Advice to Management

    Open your minds to change. Instead of just saying no to an employee idea, ask upper management first, you never know what they might say.
