volunteering there as a college student was not a good idea. I gained zero related experience to my field of education. My recruiter told me that this would give me good experience if i wanted to become a PA later on but all i did was fold bedsheets, clean beds, tables, and take patients out the hospital.
Claims Coding Specialist (Current Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – January 31, 2019
UNC Healthcare (UNC Physician Network) is an ever evolving work environment. I have found it very difficult to advance due to the culture in the particular department where I currently work. I have found that in order to advance within certain departments that it is not what you know but who you know that gets you into better career or professional career opportunities. I have heard on many occasions that it does happen and it comes with most places of employment. But does that make it right? I do love my current team and my supervisor however I feel because I have witnessed as well as experienced the "culture" personally with applying for growth opportunity positions that I believe that upper management does not operate with fairness when it comes to hiring/promoting qualified candidates. Also, they have taken away most of the flexibility that made the job an ideal position for individuals with families over the last couple of months. With that, I've found that I cannot accumulate as much paid time off as I was once able to due to having to use time for appointments and family obligations whereas previously you could work a flexible schedule to accommodate for appointments, whether doctor/dentist, school, etc.
Nurse Practitioner (Current Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – January 15, 2019
Overall UNC is a great place to work. Somehow it seems to attract genuinely nice people. Full time clinical practice as an NP can be very busy day to day, but they do offer competitive compensation. I do struggle with work life balance as a full time clinician.
Imaging Support Supervisor (Current Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC 27517 – January 14, 2019
Rewarding. I was fortunate to have been employed with this organization and to see myself grow professional. I would say that this organization truly allowed me to flourish all while continuing to challenge me every day.
As healthcare changed, we were required to do more with less.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – January 5, 2019
Management is so bad what they just sit in their offices all day and ignore the issue people in this department have been fleeing for the last year ( over 15 employees ) have left due to work conditions most days people work full shift with no breaks and are not able to actually sit anywhere but break room. Hours are crazy and rough and staff are fighting with each other’s constantly because they are highly over worked I’m saying 400 patients to draw with only 5 staff members on duty. When I started it was a very happy place but due to years of neglate and very very poor management it is now a mean rough mean place to work. I had to leave because i could not handle the abuse. Only benifit was retirement and health care benifits In this department that’s is it!
Office Manager/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – January 2, 2019
I really enjoyed working at this position. There was opportunities for advancement and there were also opportunities for education. Distance was the only issue for me for I lived in Durham and had to commute to Chapel Hill daily. I did not have a vehicle at that time.
Critical Care Paramedic (Former Employee) – Raleigh, NC – December 18, 2018
I found Management there to be lack luster at best, they seem to promote incompetence and they drove the good employees away especially if they saw you as a threat. if they did not like you for any reason at all the messed with your schedule and they fought change tooth and nail if they thought it would make someone else look good.
Productive and fun place to work. Employees and Employers were like family!
Radiologist Practitioner Assistant (Former Employee) – High Point, NC – December 17, 2018
I loved where I worked, I loved the people. But, after 15 yrs of working there in the role I was in, I never got a raise. I was looking to advance in my career or I would have never ever left there. Great place to work overall.
Set hours, no weekends, holiday work, or call.
Wanted to do more things, wanted a chance of advancement
