I worked at Hospital Corporation of America full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I was working with a facility that provided quality healthcare and leading edge technology. I was able to work with some incredible physicians and able to help them learn the market and grow their practice.

Cons

No real downsides just took awhile at our local hospital to get equipment and new technology. There was a long process and tight budget due to current economic environment.

Advice to Management

The leadership was fantastic and supportive of our sales positions and what we were trying to accomplish. I love the upper management and had no issues.

    Pros

    There are employees who have worked here for 30 years. Firings and layoffs are rare. If you show up, treat people with respect, own your responsibility, and are not an idiot you can enjoy a long career. They promote from within and value internal endorsements. The company truly cares about providing quality healthcare to individuals and is committed to constantly improving process and patient experience. The Caring for the Community campaign is a testament in itself to the company's sincere and foundational commitment to people in the local community. Work-Life balance is encouraged and most managers are quite flexible about time off requests or working from home until it is abused. The company has a culturally diverse workforce and is gender-neutral in management and above positions.

    Cons

    Abundance of governance, standards, paranoia, and red tape lingering from the late 90's Medicare fraud investigations. Over-communication within departments, and poor coordination, communication, and alignment across business lines. Overly-complex performance review and goal-setting process leading to lack of personal connection to company direction. Burdensome project governance stuck in Waterfall-only mentality, reactionary leadership, and vacillating organizational goals. A generally guarded and calculated culture makes transparent and candid communication difficult. Agile process is virtually impossible due to resource management that allocates resources across multiple projects at once. Innovation is spoken of highly but oppressed by the culture of governance, security, and territorial departments resistant to joint ownership. The company overly ties itself to external vendors, outsourcing, and contract workers rather than trusting its own home-grown talent (which is substantial). Raises, bonuses, and promotions are limited if you are not a director or above.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously re-examine the culture of governance and security to make sure you are not stifling innovation or efficiency. Improve communication at the executive levels across business lines. Rethink and simplify performance review process, goal setting, and tools. Give meaningful incentives (bonuses, raises, rewards) and career opportunities (promotions, increased influence and authority) to respected workers. Stop committing to more work for your people than you know is realistic so your talent can be used more efficiently rather than spread across multiple efforts at once. Trust your people like you want them to trust you. The turnover you see is because good people get burnt out, see little incentive for doing a good job, and go somewhere else.
