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

    Pros

    Salary is not too bad

    Cons

    Total lack of training and orientation. Total lack of structure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I begged to be trained in the system properly. Management showed no interest in that. This company needs to be structured correctly and upper management needs to supervise the day to day activities more closely.

    I have been working at Community Health Systems

    Pros

    Competitive salaries and start up bonuses.

    Cons

    After working for sometime at a CHS run hospital I have finally realized Corporate couldn't careless about physicians. We are sadly a disposable, replaceable commodity. Many physicians have come and gone feeling the same. CHS places administration and management on a pedestal! They don't appear to careless about input from physicians. All decisions are made from the top and run down the line to the bottom of the trough (to the physicians). Profit, not patient, physician, or employee satisfaction seem to matter much. Think twice before joining CHS run hospitals. It has been a sad experience for me. Employment contracts are carefully worded to enslave you more. Dont be fooled by the salary or start up bonus!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be there to serve the physicians needs not treat the physicians with distrust and are disposable.

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

    Pros

    Unless you are in the Ole Boys Network you do not matter. CHS will promote you but will not give you a raise just more work. Meanwhile the CEO is constantly getting more $$$.

    Cons

    Job promotions do not come with a salary increase, your "promotion" is increased responsibilities and a title. If you take a new job in the company there is a policy you will not get more than a 7% raise. This is how your employee loyalty is rewarded, they will hire people into the company at a much higher rate and you will be forever underpaid.

    This company hates their employees and treats them like trash.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop being so greedy and narcissistic. greed. greed. greed. greed. greed.

    I worked at Community Health Systems

    Pros

    I worked in the Home Health and Hospice division. I can't think of one positive thing to say.

    Cons

    Good old boys network at corporate. The Home Health and Hospice lacked focus and leadership. They have a Senior Director in place that has absolutely no practical HH or Hospice experience. The leadership in the field likes to use fear tactics to try to get results. Just plain nasty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue about HH and Hospice

    Pros

    Great Co workers. The workers that are from there are beautiful. They love there job and have such diligent dedication to put up with the exception management they have present.

    Cons

    Management does not work with employees. It's a power trip and patient safety is an issue. License endangerment. Hostile work environment. Degrading atmosphete. No respect for front line staff. Directors don't have a clue what they are doing. Poor communications. Unfair with employees. Rips them off every chance they get. not a place for individual growth. Says they are a community cares but they are in fact a parasite in this community. They give very little jobs to the people in the town and out source the rest. Then they charge a great amount for our patients in this community. One of the highest in the nation. For the employees, the benefits are a disgrace and to top it off they have to health care providers. This company needs a desperate overhaul.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get training. Learn how to read your union contract. For God's sake you had a lawyer negotiate a contract you don't follow. Learn how to treat a human with respect. Just because people get paid less than you doesn't make them less of a needed member. You need to get down from the pedestal and see where your ship is sinking. Get rid of your disgraceful directors that degrade your employees.
