    Pros

    This company has great transition programs in place. They provide a lot of education and like to groom their own
    staff for higher positions (manager, director, educator, CNO, etc.). They hire new graduate nurses.

    Cons

    They are focused heavily on times. How fast a nurse does all of her patient care from collecting samples, administering medications, and discharging patients is all on a rolling timer. This can stress some nurses out in a busy understaffed ER.

    Pros

    Exciting time to be in healthcare with a company committed to its core values, including quality healthcare and commitment to patients. Upper management cares about the employees, with significant attention to employee development and leadership. Executive leadership also cares about our communities, by devoting corporate resources to philanthropy and volunteering through the Caring for the Community campaign and the HCA Hope Fund which allow employees to use company time to bring our resources and talents to the community through volunteer work (on company time). This commitment to "giving back" filters through and is reinforced by all levels of the company that I've seen. Great stock plans and health benefits, lots of talented and energized people.

    Cons

    Some initiatives move more slowly than others; many people don't understand "HCA" as there is no corporate branding.

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

    Pros

    Great interview process. The initial interviewer was the dept Mgr. But the 2nd interview was with the members of the dept. I was told that this was to see if I fit into b the culture of the dept.

    Cons

    The position was PRN (as needed), yet assert I accepted the position, I was told that I needed to work a minimum of 30hrs/wk. That interfered with my other obligations, so I resigned after only 3 mos.

    The training in Austin was unprofessional and drawn out to lay two weeks

    Pros

    Supportive corporate infrastructure. Supportive local management. Consistent management techniques.

    Cons

    Centralizing most decision-making and development at corporate headquarters. Less awareness of local, field needs. Career advancement requires moving between cities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More involvement of local, field managers.
