    Pros

    There are none, except for some of the co-workers, but that has nothing to do with the corporation. If I could give this company negative stars, I would.

    Cons

    Everything, from the greedy upper management, to the unqualified lower management. They exploit employees and patients, all in the name of money. That is ALL they care about. How can a corporation, which lacks any integrity, profess that they care about the health of others? Truly pathetic.

    Advice to Management

    The managers can't take advice. They are too insecure, and too focused on their 'corporate responsibility' of abusing the staff, in order to look good to their superiors. How desperate they must be.

    Pros

    Professional co workers to work with on daily bases.

    Cons

    HCA doesn't put patient first. Money comes first, and no concern for dedicated empoyees.

    Pros

    Awesome co-workers. Very nice and helpful volunteers and other staff. Sorry, I have no other pros to add!!

    Cons

    Hospital doesn't seem to value patients or their staff as top priority; money is top priority. Nurse to patient ratio is at least 6:1

    Advice to Management

    Look at how you treat patients and your hard working staff so terribly and stop focusing on money

    Pros

    Great employees that support each other through stressful environment.

    Cons

    Undervalued by management, one sided thinking from higher ups, horrible short term disability that does not pay what you are worth no matter how long youve been employed. When sick one should be able to heal through the process not fight to prove benefits are needed. Would not recommend working for them.

    Advice to Management

    Value the people on the front lines

    Pros

    Good benefits. Alot of opportunity for learning

    Cons

    Slave drivers. They overwhelm practice managers with 10 to 16 projects per season. They are understaffed but call themselves lean.

    Advice to Management

    Design projects and assign them to your front line managers in an appropriate manner. Pay them well. For what pms do, the pay is really low.

    Pros

    Great health insurance and pretty good 401k

    Cons

    The top dogs only recognize employees if it serves their agenda. They only concerned with the bottom line. Their favorite saying during company meetings is go out and collect, collect. Forget about HR responding to a doctors note for review of a work station after surgery. Always hitting employees up for contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Why waste the time

    Pros

    Big company with about 140 hospitals all over USA. Great 401 K (one of best in the country) and relatively good pay.

    Cons

    All doctors that work for HCA are ruled by poorly educated administrators who enjoy "kicking doctors butt". You can feel almost class hatred from these people who suddenly have power over your career. Some of them have MBA, many just BA. Many CEOs of hospitals are nurses or massage therapists who did MBA, and suddenly can hire and fire physicians who are on their mercy.

    Advice to Management

    HCA system runs similar to Communist Party, who used to have base in "proletariat". Replace massage therapists currently serving as CEOs of hospitals with MDs. Get rid of numerous poorly educated administrators. I know they are great in kissing up, but they are bad for patient care.

    Pros

    none at all are only concerned with there own job and not the nursing community as a whole.

    Cons

    Not IPN friendly at all do not respect fellow nurses that are in recovery.

    Advice to Management

    Support fellow nurses trying to start a new life
