    Frustrating and dysfunctional corporate management. Incompetent hospital administrator.

    I worked at Community Health Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salaries seem to be up to the expected standards amoungst the "for profit" hospital industry. Administration personnel of CHS hospitals are grossly overpaid in comparison to the not for profit healthcare community.

    Cons

    Horribly micromanaged from the top of the corporate food chain down to the individual hospital administrations. "Bottom Line" trumps everything including customer service, staff morale and capital preservation. Upper management is allowed to be arbitrary in their dealings with supervisory staff. If you are starving, you might take a job with CHS, but make it a last resort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the "good ol' boys" syndrome. The incestuous for profit hospital systems in Nashville do nothing but breed incompetence and arrogance by recycling the same people between companies over and over. Get some new blood into the industry.

    I worked at Community Health Systems full-time (more than an 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.
