    Pros

    Work-Life Balance, Corporate Culture. The company has a culture of giving back to the community, and responds to employee surveys and suggestions.

    Cons

    Individual Departments can be less than understanding with regards to the overall company culture. Not all Managers are aware of company policies in general.

    Pros

    HCA is a huge 30+ billion dollar organization with over 200,000 employees. There are tons of opportunities within HCA but sometimes they may not be an upward change in title. Doesn't mean the compensation won't be there, so be open to new roles as your career progresses.

    Cons

    For its size, HCA is surprisingly based on who you know. This goes beyond regular career progression. This includes simple requests from different departments. If you have a relationship with someone in that department you will find it easier to get support. Also, at HCA they place a heavy emphasis in senior leadership on having an MBA. I have seen that bottleneck some colleagues, so be prepared to pursue that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Focus is on the right things right now...patient experience.

    Pros

    Great Benefits and an excellent 401K program. Senior Management really cares about their employees. Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Salary ranges are not good when you advance with the company. Need to promote to the salary range of the position you are promoted too.

    Advice to Management

    look at salaries and adjust them periodically to the going rate in the area for the position that the employee is filling. train management in how to be better at their interactions with their employees.

    Pros

    Good career mobility and cutting edge technology

    Cons

    Used to be a good place where upper management seemed to care about employees. That is no longer the case. They are more worried about the bottom line

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the companies roots

    Pros

    good benefits with HCA facilities, great leadership in my department, good pay, well respected company in the community, many opportunities for community service

    Cons

    large corporation, sometimes it takes too long for a decision to be made, HR is different based on your department so PTO, pay, etc can be handled differently depending on your role and department within the company

    Advice to Management

    Promote more women into Senior Leadership roles. Encourage work-life balance by offering more Paid Time Off

    Pros

    A large amount of growth opportunities due to the size of the organization. In general, an integrity driven company.

    Cons

    Poor promotion lines for non-defined positions and terrible career development for younger workers with upper management aspirations.

    Advice to Management

    Rework HR into a department that develops internal talent. As stands, its little more than a handicap for internal members.

    Pros

    They are opened Mon thru Friday and off all major holidays. Great insurance, PTO, and 401 K. Staff members are great to work with

    Cons

    The pay is not competitive with other companies. There is limited room for advancement with the doctor's office. However, there is plenty of room for growth within the company

    Advice to Management

    It's ok to have a good relationship with your staff members; however, remember that they are your employees and try not to blur the lines. Also, avoid showing favoritism to other staff members and don't promote them just because it's your friend. Do it because they are qualified
