promotions based on degrees vs experienced years of service and ability.
In my experience, the support service personnel were not given proper operational support, management backing, or support funding to conduct their duties. Since they are not considered "revenue generating" assets, support departments are left to accomplish their priorities with half the budget and staffing of other departments that do generate revenue.

Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – Raleigh, NC – May 31, 2018
needs to pay more!! I feel that an investment in the pay of employees all over will bring the best out of its employees. We live in a world where everything outside our pay is going up. The work load have increased but yet not a real amount of money to say I can see a difference in a raise per ck instead of it being a yearly break down.
I loved working at WakeMed and the team of nurses and MD's. We gave excellent care there. I left my job at WakeMed and moved away from Carolina because Nurses don't have contracts and no job security. I was high in seniority however, we take turns having to be called off for low census often. We would run out of PTO and have frequent days on call without pay.
I worked in the Patient Financial Services and it was a cut throat environment. Constant changes. Poor management that yelled at staff if they became frustrated or if you asked too many questions. Everyone only thought about themselves. I would not recommend employment here.
One never stops learning new things. Every single day there is something to learn. Not every day is going to be a great day. However, the staff in general are awesome and make the work day fly by. I truly love working at WakeMed. I am currently in school for Nursing though, so depending on my school schedule, will depend on if I stay at WakeMed.
Emergency Medical Technician (Former Employee) – Raleigh, NC – March 20, 2018
I enjoyed working at Wakemed providing patient care to the patients and comforting their families in their time of need. It really felt good making a difference in the patients' lives while they were enduring a hardship.
Horrible management. You can be first to put in for vacation a year in advance and they won't give it to you. If you question anything, they write you up! I was scheduled to be two people repeatedly. When I questioned it, I was told that I was disruptive and they wrote me up. They don't care about the employees or the patients. All I can say is run for your life.
A very fast pace, professional working environment that has many out patient settings and clinics to provide in patient and out patient Medical care for the local community. The most enjoyable part of the job would be helping and assisting the patients with their care and needs. The most difficult part would be the flow of patients and trying to handle and process them through the system.
Seminars and continuing educational opportunities.
