Management is lacking and direction of hospital is not headed in a positive direction. What was once a leading hospital in the area and on the progressive side of medicine is now more about how many patients they can see versus the quality of services provided.
Nurse Aide II (Former Employee) – Raleigh, NC – March 9, 2019
This was a horrible place to work, there is no work life balance. The managers and supervisors have favorites that they give over time to. The work is hard and the pay is low. They use and abuse you, then have you train your replacement...not cool.
I applied aug 2018 to now, all I get is we picked a better person for this position or not selected I have five years medical experience and I have New York experience . I even try to volunteer during my spear time I was told I could not because I have to have a job to volunteer.
The more you do , the more they pile up on you to do. This last position has been the most stressful. I come to work willing to help out if there is a problem. But there is time when I was told that I could not help a co-worker with a work issue, to me that is not team work, which I strongly believe in. I have given my time to the job whether it was on the clock or off the clock. but it is not appreciated. I think it is a poor management. I was hired to do one thing but instead I do what I am hired to do and more. They are trying to use my management experience with out paying for them. I am a Administrative Assistant but I supervising the light duty and the volunteer. Now I am supervising some of the staff, but I am not their supervisor. I also have to evaluate them at the end of the year. just a sample of what I am talking about.
I can wear my jeans to work, I can work day shift, and I can come in late but make the time up if I have to.
Very stressful telling someone wlse what to do everyday, when you are not their supervisor.
most of the typical work day involved floor nursing care direct one on one patient care from medication administration to basic hygiene care. Patient with many different cultural backgrounds giving diverse exposure and experience for the health care team to learn from allowing better patient understanding and care.
Enjoyed helping patients, great working enviroment

High compensation but lock of harmony and sympathy
Full time Property Service Maintenance Engineer (Current Employee) – Raleigh, NC – December 26, 2018
At Wake-med, you will encounter a company that rewards your effort and dedication. This comes at a price of having a very accelerated life style. Unlike Duke, lay back and slow pace, Wake-med work culture is at a very high pace and highly demanding, which can be both challenging but stressful.
My summary says enough they are liars, and there is no backbone or assistance in HR. I even had proof and they still did nothing. I wanted to stay at that job because I love my work, but the treatment forced my to leave.
The excellent hospital has a good reputation in providing heart surgery which has a very high success rate. Physicians, nurses and Respiratory Therapists provide excellent care. Management is good and takes care of their staff. Very good working condition and parking arrangement.
