Could be a great company but does not reward loyal employees

Former Employee - Human Resources in Brentwood, TN

I worked at Hospital Corporation of America full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

flexibility with schedule, nice coworkers, gaining experience within a very large organization, centrally located among restaurants and shopping

Cons

loyalty is not rewarded- to earn a competitive salary you have to switch companies because of the strict cap imposed on HR promotions, some micro-management practices, typical corporate red tape and unending tiers of approvals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward loyalty. Let employees be more autonomous. Foster a more progressive culture.

    I worked at Hospital Corporation of America full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay scale is above average
    Benefits offered are good and decently priced
    Cross train to learn new jobs
    Community involvement
    Offer little extras (ice cream social, lunch bag) throughout year to staff
    Good place to get some experience but not a company for a career

    Cons

    Most open positions are PRN without benefits
    Lot of flexing, if full time very seldom work a 40 hour week
    Lay off staff often, especially those with many years and over 60
    Outsource many departments
    High stress level with fewer staff performing more duties
    Push department management to cut staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You act like you care about and appreciate your staff but the only thing you really care about is those daily money numbers.

    I have been working at Hospital Corporation of America

    Pros

    I have money to take care of my family
    I love the people I work with-
    The wonderful patients

    Cons

    no connection between Corporate Scum and actual "worker bees" \
    Corporate scum allowed to come into a facility and "clean house" - keep in mind they clean house without the knowledge of what a person does on a daily basis- BUT can decide if they are expendable. My particular deadline driven department is understaffed- I have not SEEN one of these "corpies" come and offer help. WHY DO WE NEED 20 CHIEFS TO HANDLE 5 INDIANS? Basically that is what it comes to. They HIRE Copries with FAT filled salaries to come in and supervise the Executives with FAT Lined salaries - who in turn supervise the supervisors- REALLY ?? Hey HCA how about this: GET RID OF THE FAT!!! OR have CORPIE do the DAY to DAY grind with their bloated salaries. WHY would any CORP. get rid of the PEOPLE who actually work - Check in, check out, patient problems, ins verifications, scheduling , authorizations, referrals..OH by they way that referral that is needed - it is an out of network request... patient needs it right away, their LIFE is on line... have fun with that and keeping on task with all the other DEADLINE driven duties. ASK a CORPIE to do it.... BET you their fat filled pay check they couldn't and wouldn't. BUT lets hire MORE OF THEM. Why get rid of they people who help WITH the Patient care... ISN'T that what HCA claims to be??? WELL ACTIONS speak louder than FAKE ASS statements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Before you decide to CLEAN house- HOW ABOUT actually sitting down at someones position and actually working it. NOT for 20 min. but for a WEEK. TRULY get the understanding of someones job duties. GET rid of SOME fat... THE fat doesn't help with the DAILY grind... IF you have no one GRINDING WHY do you need all the CHIEFS.
