Pros

Job security and benefits are some of the best reasons to work at HCSC. The company shows great interest in retaining its current employees

Cons

Poor communication between upper management and employees. As for IT they are way behind the eight ball in keep up with standards and the latest technologies. Most companies stay 1-2 versions behind software and hardware releases, but HCSC waits until its either not supported any longer or just does not meet business needs any longer. They need to be much more proactive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Praising employees twice a year (bonus and when blue pulse survey) is not enough, many employees feel unappreciated. Most companies stay 1-2 versions behind software and hardware releases, but HCSC waits until its either not supported any longer or just does not meet business needs any longer. They need to be much more proactive.

    Pros

    There is some opportunity at HCSC. Its a large organization that offers potential for growth.

    Cons

    The company seems behind the times from a technology standpoint and doesn't comprehend the knowledge economy and knowledge workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in modernization. Technology adds value and understand what value will be added before investing.

    An easy place to work if you have the right job, or a difficult place if you are not in the right position.

    Pros

    Competitive benefits packages, and many opportunities to apply for jobs in other parts of the company. There are opportunities for growth and development.

    Cons

    Work Life Balance only applies to certain jobs/roles. Since IT cannot make any changes during normal business hours, many times you will have to work nights and weekends in addition to your normal day job (where you attend back to back meetings all day.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We have too many layers of senior management. Looking at the org chart there are Vice Presidents, Directors and Managers that have only one or two people reporting to them. Additionally the ITG Service Delivery Methodology (SDM) process has impacted our ability to quickly react to business needs. SDM documentation takes up an average of 35% of the time on a project.
