HCA is a great place to work. Some improvement in Management should be made, can be a clickish place to work.

Pros

Competetive Salary, Great Benefits and people.

Cons

Some area's can be clickish, if your not in the circle you get left out when promotions come up.

Advice to Management

Break up the click's and good ole boy mentality. Recognize area's for their contributions to the company and don't ever take them for granted.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are competitive and if you work at corporate, Nashville is a great place to live.

    Cons

    This company has been positioning itself to compete as one of the top IT places to work for the past several years. I've worked in IT in two other global companies before joining HCA, and my opinion is that HCA's IT division has a long way to go to make the cut in that competition. Weakness especially in areas of leadership and integrity. Integrity is something that is practiced when it is convenient in this company. More than other places I've worked, I noticed lots of longevity with mediocre IT talent masquerading in senior leadership positions. Much of this is due to the entrenched conservative culture of the company (it was founded as a Frist company). Job advancement criteria is based less on merit than on the way one is perceived to fit in socially with the top leadership. Lots and lots of talk about integrity, code of conduct, etc. with little action to back it up. Constructive dissent and different opinions are encouraged through lip service but reap negative consequences when professionally practiced. Great talent does not stay long at this company. Professional Development opportunities consist of mandatory generic HR classes (coaching for success, conducting meetings, etc.). If you're looking for an opportunity to truly learn from great mentors in IT and are prepared to work hard and hopefully advance on merit, look in another direction - you will not find that in the HCA IT department.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    Good benefits and adequate time off. Good corporate learning experience. The work is centered around technology despite it's hospital ties. Several meetings with upper regional and local area practice management that give insight into running your own practice as well as connections to do so.

    Cons

    Corporate atmosphere where info may not travel like it should. It is specific to each practice. Senior level management changes dealing with the very detailed rule books are sent via email. Sometimes the changes may seem irrelevant however it is dependent upon your specific area practice. The work can be quite long when reports and quarterly updates are due. All night in some cases if you're at a large practice.

    Advice to Management

    Because each area has it's own management teams the issues lie more with area practice management than upper level issues.
