    I was in a call center environment. They wanted to improve and tried hard with new systems, training and reviews.

    I worked at Community Health Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Good structure. Expectations were communicated clearly.

    Cons

    There was some diversity in work ethic of the team yet all were managed the same. Management did not seem to recognize some were more dedicated and wanted more work. Everything was kept on a even field. A bit of distrust by management because of a few who took advantage of the system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward and acknowledge those who are working very hard. Do not be skeptical of everyone. Keep up the good training and communication of expectations. Allow people to expand, learn and grow. Celebrate and encourage the things some are good at and let them expand in those areas. Keep other doing what they are good at. Overall you will have a strong team. I think they were working towards this and I was there in the early stages of things being set up. Overall was a good place and they were really trying to be a great department.

They offer a variety of medical, surgical, and emergency services and generally have ancillary facilities that include doctors' offices, outpatient surgery centers, and diagnostic imaging facilities.
