I have been working at Hospital Corporation of America full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

- They are fair with their employees and reward those who work hard.
- Plenty of opportunity for career growth if you are diligent and plan a career path
- They invest heavily in IT which keeps reasonably new technology around all the time.
- Stable company in a relatively stable industry. Mature standards and procedures across most areas of the business
- Some IT positions are allowed to work from home if you find the right one

Cons

- Inconsistent IT standards between corporate and divisions (also amongst the divisions themselves). A lot of time is spent re-inventing the wheel or figuring out the current procedure for something
- A LOT of bureaucracy and red tape for certain things. This is definitely a "who you know" kind of company.
- Inadequate training on an on-going basis
- PTO and Holidays are mixed into 1 large pool of hours due to the 24/7 nature of Hospitals
- On-Call required for most IT positions for the same reason.
- Highly unlikely you will get more than a 3% raise annually unless you jump around a bit

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Expand internship programs company wide. Young aspiring professionals would love the opportunity to have a large corporation such as HCA at the beginning of their resume, and the division IT staff could certainly use the extra hands.

    Pros

    The HCA culture is great, community involvement and charity encouraged. Variety in job/business roles encouraged throughout company.

    Cons

    I feel like females do not advance as quickly as men do. I see the company addressing this but I see this issue in most companies, not just HCA. The health benefits would be better if hospitals outside of network were accepted like in network ones were.
