I have been working at Health Management Associates full-time for more than a year

Pros

Large stable company with many facilities all over the US

Cons

No loyalty to long term employees. It is difficult to get approval to hire necessary employees or purchase equipment needed for patient care. They make promises to physicians to get them hired, but then do not provide the resources to support them. They continue to cut staff and expect others to absorb the work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide the resources to hospitals and clinics to adequately take care of patients. At least visit the hospitals for which you are denying funding for necessary staff and equipment. Provide adequate staff to keep up with all of the controls or policies so everyone isn't set up to fail.

    Pros

    Self Scheduling, flexible uniform code.

    Cons

    Low pay, lack of management support and visibility, lack of credible CEU's only provides the basic requirements. Slow ER process of patients, no working system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be applicable education for the department. Upper management needs to be more visible to be plugged into what works and doesn't work in the department and who is an effective worker and who is just taking up space with very little productivity. Increase pay to be more competitive instead of sending out emails that state you are giving pay equitable raises and then not following thru. You will have an increase in job satisfaction if you do these simple steps and retain your nurses instead of losing employees to all other local hospitals and being short staffed on a day to day basis.

    I worked at Health Management Associates as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice office, 9-5 working hours, staff is friendly and hard working

    Cons

    Sr. management is ineffectual. It was the "old boys network". Many executives got to positions of power doing nothing. They are not leaders. Treat the IT staff like animals, always laying off the good workers and keeping the bottom dwellers. Staff is overworked and underpaid. No clear direction set. A lot of "positioning" by management. As a public company, tried to set corporate governance, but was a joke. No advancement, and became scapegoat to anything gone wrong. No accountability, and only interested in profit and bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the bums and put in resources that embrace change, quality of care and advancement
