    Pros

    Great benefits including tuition reimbursement, sign-on bonuses, and excellent staff.

    Cons

    Private facilities at times focus more on money rather than the best opportunities for learning

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Praise staff for the things that do right, not only reprimand for their mistakes.

    Pros

    I like the fact that superiors were nice and valued staff of all levels. Seemed to be a genuine level of respect across the board.

    Cons

    I really do not have any cons as thus is my first job and i have nothing to really compare it to and even i i did i honestly still would have a hard time doing so

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

    Pros

    Positive culture, many training opportunities, supportive colleagues and management, many chances to stretch and grow both professionally and personally. Benefits very good and there are many corporate perks. All manner of discounts on things like software, store discounts, and free Frist Museum memberships, to name a few things. Management encourages servant leadership relationships and teamwork. It is a very uplifting environment in which to work. The company not only encourages community outreach for the rank and file, management also works right along side. It's amazing! Management listens to their employees and reacts positively and does their best to address concerns and make appropriate changes. Work-life balance is excellent.

    Cons

    Communication can be challenging in the corporate environment.

    I worked at Hospital Corporation of America full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Co-workers were great and hard workers.

    Cons

    Nursing management is poor. Heavy patient load, not enough support for critically ill patients. Compensation is ok for nursing, but for techs it is terribly and no one wants to work. Healthcare benefits are poor considering this is a hospital.

    I worked at Hospital Corporation of America full-time

    Pros

    Great place to build experience and jump start career in the healthcare world. HCA is large and versatile with lots of room for improvements, so you'll never be bored.

    Cons

    Onboarding and continuous management training programs need to be in place!! There is a lack of communication between HCA physician services directors and physicians. More partnership between hospitals and physician practices is necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management needs to be more approachable and aware of what is going on internally in day to day practices. Higher ups should be more familiar with physicians and have more presence when rolling out corporate initiatives.
