A great place to work for a few years, but starts to lose its appeal after a couple years.

Pros

Competititve starting salary and opportunity for growth

Cons

As you are promoted the small raises you get, do not keep your salary in line with industry. I find myself ranging from extremely busy for weeks on end to no important work for a month.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better prioritize work load for employees

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

    Pros

    Okay insurance plan. Good physician staff.

    Cons

    No regard for employees. I know of one employee of 30 years summarily fired as a cost cutting measure...by Email. CHS customarily pays wages in the lower 1/3 of market rates. Nurses are routinely denied time off for doctor's visits and the like even with several weeks notice. Profits are far more important than patients. Employee turnover is high. The only comraderie among employees stems from the feeling that misery loves company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Our hospital is among the largest in CHS yet, to the best of my knowledge, none of the Nashville executives have ever set foot on campus. Try to manage the hospitals you have rather than focusing on sucking up even more.

    Pros

    Lots of space to work independently, promotions easy to come by

    Cons

    Lower salary, office was very run down, high turnover because of round the clock hours and low salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your staff more, especially management. You lose a lot of good people because of it.
