    I have been working at Community Health Systems part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Works well with scheduling days off. Accommodating to days needed off. Uniform dress code is tolerable close to city very close coworkers

    Cons

    Understaffed terrible employee parking pay needs to be increased not sure if bonuses are coming

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to employees before major changes are made in their department

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

    Pros

    I honestly cannot think of one....

    Cons

    poor pay no staffing. more directors than staff no education poor benefits. employees made to take their vacation time because corporate isn't making enough money. no supplies. poor care. management is absurd nursing is grossly underpaid staffing is frightening...and I could go on and on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of your middle management. get rid of all your directors. teach your staff how to do their job. pay people what they are worth. stop saying "it's a for profit hospital". take care of your patients. pay for employees certifications. stop hiring directors who have no idea what they are doing just because they are blond and pretty. You are an absolute disaster. I still cringe when I think about working there.
