    I have been working at UNC Health Care part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Friendly staff that make people feel like family (as often you spend more time with them than your family), leading to an enjoyable work environment, wonderful physicians

    Cons

    Work-life balance is challenging at times but that is the nature of the job, Pay rates need to be reevaluated, benefits are not good.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward your hard workers as they often keep the glue together and are sorely missed when they leave because they feel underappreciated.

    Pros

    My manager is nice but brainwashed

    Cons

    Hard to get time off. The company doesn't seem to care about work/life flexibility. Somewhat feels like a sweat shop. Can't leave a minute early without getting in trouble

    Pros

    Very supportive team. Everyone that is hired is committed and dedicated to providing the best care they can. They go above and beyond and support each other well as a team, especially in an acute-care setting.

    Complex matrix-reporting structure can make manager positions ambiguous at times.

    I worked at UNC Health Care full-time

    Pros

    Good work life balance, good PTO

    Cons

    Things move very, very slowly. HR is an absolute nightmare if you're a hiring manager.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously overhaul Human Resources. You have significant legal exposure based on inconsistent application of policies.

    I have been working at UNC Health Care full-time

    Pros

    They pay a decent median salary

    Cons

    Over the years we have lost all the extras that made UNC a great place to work. They recently dropped all our PTO and said it was to be more competitive. I don't understand that rational. Good luck getting a job there. I doesn't matter what your education or background is. Jobs are handed to friends and the hard workers bust their backs to carry all those people.
