    I have been working at Community Health Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is an office building. You get to work in it. It has heat and air conditioning.

    Cons

    Where can you start with this outfit? How about ZERO career development? More work, no raise. Yet you may be lucky and get a "title change," which to CHS' overpaid C-staff is the same as being able to afford your bills.
    The CEO has a Company private jet which carts him back and forth to Kentucky each weekend. The Staff pays for this. Probably why the Staff gets no merit raise and 1.5% annual raise. Where Wayne Smith and the other Executives rake in Millions.
    Employees emailed constantly to fill out a survey and to vote form work (AND HOME) so CEO is rated best man in health care (ridiculous).
    Poor and expensive health insurance plan.
    Dress code is from the 1940s and horrible and expensive to maintain on such low salary CHS provides.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are Greedy slimeballs. How about you actually value employees? How much money do you actually need at the expense of everyone else? Nobody at this Company likes you.

    I worked at Community Health Systems

    Pros

    There is not one reason to work here. If I had to choose "something" it would be that you recognize any other job you will ever take will be better than Community Health Systems.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency in salary scale. Max raise when taking a new positive is 7%.
    CEO and CFO take in millions and reap huge bonuses while staff gets nothing.
    Culture is absolutely horrible and is filled with backstabbing and terrible behavior where people run and hide.
    Dress code is ridiculous. It is not even affordable on the salary that CHS provides.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward Staff. How much money do you need at the expense of the rest? Seriously.

    I have been working at Community Health Systems

    Pros

    There are not any positive aspects of working here. Maybe the 'free' soft drinks.

    Cons

    I make 39k but I have to spend 2k a year on the dress code. Like I can afford this?

    Pay is well below market and you better get your below market pay when you come into the Company because once you do, don't ever expect a salary increase. All the money is earmarked to pay for the 100m lawsuit the Company just paid. Employees suffer but the behavior did not come from the employees, it came from the top.

    The CEO is a man of pure GREED and selfishiness. Just about everything this Company tells its employees is a lie. Don't expect to ever be rewarded for your great work or sacrifice. The CEO will just consume MORE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get someone in there who doesn't take take take everything for themselves and NOTHING for anyone else. This guy is GREED.

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

    Pros

    Very friendly atomsphere and environment. Employees are very conscientious about patient care because of high percentages needed from patient assessments. Hospital floors are usually very quiet.

    Cons

    Had a very good experience of really loving what I did and found the work-life balance suitable. Like many hospitals today their concern is about making enough profit to sustain operations. My particular job saw a high percentage in turnover of patients in and then out of the hospital. This keeps the hospital employees very busy in maintaining high patient occupancy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much micromanaging done by some manager. Too much breeds mistrust and discontent. Some managers need continuing education on how to manage properly and courteously to their employees. Great communication skills are an important asset in maintaining wonderful employee-management relationships. More can be done to make some operations run much more smoothly and efficiently. Employees should never have to come and work in a stress-filled environment because of poor managers.

    I have been working at Community Health Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to learn new things and expand work experience. Most of the employees have been with the company for 10 years or more. Doesn't get boring. Fast paced. Coworkers are great team players. Immediate supervisors are great.

    Cons

    Pay not commensurate with the heavy workload. Endless tasks on computer system, many of the tasks are busy work. Have to wear many different hats at the same time. Can be frustrating and feels like it's hard to get everything done and do a good job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please speed up the computer system, it's hard to get things done when the system grinds to a halt several times weekly. Take a look at the computer tasks as some of them are busywork. Beginning of month workload is becoming unbearable as I'm expected to run benefits for the whole caseload while completing all of my other duties. Look at pay rates. The workload has at least doubled and our office has exceeded goals, all while working short staffed. But we got the worst pay raise ever.

    Cons

    Money driven at a deep level
    Flexes staff to deeply causing problems
    Politics seems to be a key factor in roles

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be loyal to your employees. A bonus is not as important as patient care.
