Nuclear Medicine Technologist (Current Employee), Raleigh-Durham, NCMarch 13, 2015
Pros: education and pay rate.
Good benefits, educational environment, very competitive pay rates and ‘most’ of the workplace community great. The corporate culture is North Carolina relaxed although strict in the sense of The Wake Way goals and code(s) of conduct. The company mission statement is clear: Patients and Families first. Expectations and objectives are rational and the support is there to assist all employees achieve set (situational) objectives. Management desires to help their departments function and succeed.

working at wakemed
Staff RN, Critical Care (Current Employee), Cary, NCNovember 13, 2014
Pros: good coworkers
Cons: changes in management, inconsistent information
I have enjoyed working at wakemed. A typical day at work is very busy. I have learned to efficiently manage care of many patients under pressure. We have had several changes in management on our unit, however I do think that she is doing a good job managing our staff. My co-workers are what makes me able to do my job well. Being a nurse is extremely hard work but having coworkers around you that support you makes it all possible. The most enjoyable part of my job is when I occasionally get to have a patient who touches my heart, who sees all that I am doing for them and who is kind. That makes it all worth it.

Punitive culture, anxiety producing
RN (Current Employee), CarySeptember 13, 2014
Pros: free parking
Cons: too much unpaid time is required to make such a low wage reasonable
Staff including midlevel management is so afraid of punishment for not dotting "i"'s that actual patient care suffers.
What looks good on paper is not always reality.
Poor teamwork, everyone is so scared that they'll through anyone under the bus to survive.

I will have to say that WakeMed really helps their employees reach more potential through their tuition reimbursement program. I have taken advantage of that program for the past 2 years and it's really helped.

Bad management
CT Tech (Former Employee), Raleigh, NCApril 29, 2014
Pros: coworkers and front line staff really do care
Cons: poor work environment created by management
My coworkers were wonderful people but are quickly being forced out by bad management all with the attitude "you are all replaceable." Well, literally half of us have had to be replaced in the last year alone because of poor management! Not only have we not had raises in nearly 2 years but our already outrageous health care costs have gone up, our time off has been reduced, and shift differentials have been cut. And yet our manager tells us that work should be our first priority above family even. Your work was picked apart by someone who has never done your job, you have to beg for even a day off, and are constantly talked down to and belittled in any number of backhanded ways. The off sites were okay but stay away from Big Wake!!

RN Clinical Educator & Supervisor Endoscopy (Current Employee), Cary, NCMarch 25, 2014
A typical day at work is coming in and doing Kronos time and viewing the daily schedule for the day. Looking to make sure staffing is still adequate pending add ons to the day. Help with staffing, meetings about services, EPIC building at this time. Co-workers are great to work with, and the staff in the area that I supervise are fabulous and are long time employees with the facility as well as the department the shortest time in the department is ten years.
The most enjoyable time is working long side the staff and seeing what things they feel they need help with or need something different and being able to validate or assist them in to compensating another direction to make things work to their advantage.

Just Plain Horrible!
OR staff Worker (Former Employee), Raleigh, NCMarch 12, 2014
Pros: some co-workers
Cons: short breaks, no overtime, no raises, bad management team
I worked for this company and I must say management is very cut throat and will say and do anything to get you fired even if that means lie to you or make up stories to paint you out to look like the bad guy. Middle management is no better either just slaves to upper hierarchy. No raises, PDO's cut, short staff and no paid overtime.STAY AWAY from this horrible Hospital, its not cleaned well and filled with disgruntled employees. They're so call motto is Wake Way, which is a crock of bull and fake! Most of upper Management are not even qualified for the positions they have, The Manager that I had only had a Associates Degree in Nursing, when most hospitals you need a Master degree in Nursing to Manage a Department
