EmployeeWorked at Wakemed in Raleigh, NC at the time of review.

What I like

We receive Wakeshare when the company does well.

What I dislike

Work/life balance seems to be lacking when employees are involved.

Suggestions for improvement

We received umbrellas for Nurse's Week. 2020 The Year of the Nurse/Midwife, during a Global Pandemic, and upper Management chose to give out umbrellas. There were several other options that would have been more "cost effective" and given the employees a greater sense of appreciation.

EmployeeWorked at Wakemed in Raleigh, NC at the time of review.

What I like

The company pays well for the field and had reasonable bonuses and benefits

What I dislike

They need more staffing across the board and they need to find ways to encourage growth in their employ

Suggestions for improvement

It should be mandatory that Management meet with staff on all shifts at least once a quarter, rather than making decisions based on input from limited staff that they do see

Work-Life Balance

Required double call

EmployeeWorked in Logistics/materials management at Wakemed in Raleigh, NC at the time of review.

What I like

Even during the COVID-19 pandemic WakeMed can withstand the pressure and hold its own. One of the best hospital in the nation, in my opinion.

What I dislike

Some employee are hired based on personal connection. These employee have no credential and are unqualified for the job. Some are very cunning on their ability to get out of work, hiding and sleeping in other locations of the hospital. Even though they have been caught by nurses and reported to management they always constantly gets away with it due to their connection with management.

Suggestions for improvement

New hiring practice need to be implemented. Employee should no longer be hired due to their personal connection with management. Potential candidates should be hired based on their ability and willingness to do the work required of them.

They pay the nurses a pretty good wage but we are always short staffed. You can get overtime but it is so not worth it
