Training and Development Consultant (Current Employee) – Pinehurst, NC – January 31, 2018
Largest employer in the area and knows it. Pay is subpar. workplace tends to have a lot of meetings with little action that comes from it. Employee satisfaction survey done every year, but is more concerned with participation rate than acting on information generated.
It was great when i first started but i watched it rapidly decline. Sad to say but there are better hospitals out there.
They have favorites and it is very obvious. If you dont fit in you can rest assured you will get the worst assignments, and put on call first or sent home first. Cant talk to management cause they " are in meeting".
Wont let family go there now because i dont trust they will get good care. Since patient safety is not a priority.
Close to home
Management plays favorites, no support, lost hours
FirstHealth is a wonderful hospital system in North Carolina, providing care in four different counties. The environment is always growing in a productive manner and encouraging advancement in health care and education.

The nurses and doctors seem to think they are made of gold. They are stuck up and snobby like someone owes them something. In a work place you would think that it would be fun to work with other people but not here these people are very rude.

Lack of positive management support in my department. Unable to advance to other positions in the hospital due to management blocking you. Back bitting,disrespect and talk about staff and patients,very unprofessional. Zero support from upper management when an issue, other receiving favoritism.
Information system volunteer (Former Employee) – Pinehurst, NC – August 15, 2017
I worked one day per week. Nice friendly work environment. The employees look very friendly. I appreciate they need help. One of the employees shows me how to fix the computers, install hard drives and microchips, and set BIOS configuration setup.
Very lean staffing and below market pay with a very stressful environment. Plenty of PDO time, but good luck getting it scheduled, although if co-workers felt cooperative, you could schedule some holidays by taking turns.
Lots of PDO in the bank that got paid out when I left
Extremely poor attitude towards remote coders by IS dept
First Health is a great company to work for. Enjoyed my job as a dental assistant. Loved working with the children. I felt I touched each one of my patients in a positive way. Great learning experience. If you worked hard and done your job, you would get bullied by coworkers. I was unable to go to director with the problem.
Try to work with the least amount of staff and still provide safe care. No work/life balance, even when expressed. If you work hard, they will expect more. Pay attention to your employees and your yearly evaluations you have them to do!!!! Above all LISTEN!! Often year-end benefits don't make-up for the yearly stress on families and health. Compensation could be better if a total package was offered. If no additional pay is available then offer more opportunities for time off, vacation packages or just hire and retain the correct staff.
Dedicated staff, Open to new ideas
Very little staff, not enough compensation. Compensation isn't alway monetary, could be vacation

Management communicates through email. Unwilling to speak face to face. When they do lower themselves to speak to you it is to tell you how "you do see the whole picture" unwilling to correct a problem until it is grown out of control. Too much backstabbing and nepotism. Too much bullying CYA not enough patient care.
Good bebafits package
Hard place to work if youre not related to someone there. Alot of backstabbing
