    I have been working at Hospital Corporation of America

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits; good people to work with. Constantly changing environment means you never get bored and there's always something challenging to learn or do.

    Cons

    Long hours; always on call 24/7 if you're in management. Lack of opportunity to advance in your career. People are buttonholed by their title. The only way to really get more pay is to jump to another organization because of internal limits on how much your salary can be raised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop opportunities for long term employees to advance so you keep the most talented.

    Private facilities at times focus more on money rather than the best opportunities for learning

    Pros

    Team is very supportive. You get to learn new things everyday. Opinions and suggestions are taken into consideration.

    When a team member decides to leave the company, it is challenging during the period of finding a replacement, and it's challenging to be able to transfer all the knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know everyone, do not stick to know only the management team.
