    Pros

    Great training, and they make feel at home. It's a great environment to grow in. A very positive place to work

    Could be a great company but does not reward loyal employees

    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.

    Good company, but terrible work/life balance

    Pros

    HCA is a great company with good benefits and decent salaries.

    Cons

    Physician Services is a terrible place to work. It's very disorganized and usually under staffed. Also, they have cut all of the staff increases to the point that it isn't worth working towards a promotion, because they'll give you a small salary increase, but bump your hours by 10 hours per week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back the former staff increases and change the work expectations among the managers.

    Pros

    Potential to grow and find a position that suits what you want to do. Career Pathing offered from directors and HR. Will help you find a position you enjoy and to pursue promotions.

    Cons

    After working at a small business for many years, coming back into a large corporation does take some time and patience to get used to. More strict in the policies and procedures then a small business is.

    Pros

    Compensation: they tend to pay very well.

    Cons

    Lack of knowledge by senior management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on game changing strategies instead of making the PowerPoint look good for the next MOR!
