Great place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Nashville, TN

I have been working at HCA full-time for more than a year

ProsOffice culture is great, very laid back, and the work life balance is nice. They care about your career and promoting from within.

ConsNo sick days, meaning you have to use your PTO if you get sick. But this is the only negative thing I have to say about HCA because it really is a great place to work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Internships at HCA

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at HCA

ProsAs an intern, I feel like I am treated as one of the team and my opinion truly matters. Everyone is willing to take the time to teach me new skills and appreciate my contributions.

ConsIn the IT department, it is pretty male dominated. As a female employee, you do sometimes feel slightly outcast. It is also slightly hard to leave work at work and not bring it home with you.

It's been great thus far!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at HCA

ProsThere are a lot of different places to work within the network! Are a lot of different types of nursing jobs too- it makes it possible to stay with HCA but switch positions if you're ready for a change and growth.

ConsI've been applying for a transfer and for some reason I'm not being considered despite having a perfect track record with employment and reviews.?? Why??

Advice to Senior ManagementIf someone has a perfect record for employment and reviews they should be considered for alternate positions- in another HCA facility!
