    I worked at Hospital Corporation of America

    Pros

    HCA always worried about their employees and strive to make it a better place to work at.

    Cons

    You were just another number sometimes because the company is so large.

    Pros

    Always take the high road; investing heavily in infrastructure that is sustainable; integrity in running the most successful healthcare company in the world. Leading by example in the industry; demonstrating efficiency without sacrificing quality.

    Cons

    Not a place to work inefficiently. Pace is invigorating and not for those who prefer to relax while working

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to stay connected to those serving the patients directly.

    I worked at Hospital Corporation of America as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The internal audit department is very team oriented, and has great management to set the tone at the top. Hospitals are going to be where people are, so the travel spots are usually pretty good. Great work-life balance and culture of the company.

    Cons

    Work can sometimes be repetitive and mundane.

    Pros

    Great Leadership, Great opportunities. The company is very respectful to the workers and helpful with work life balancing. Benefits overall are fair.

    Cons

    Minimal training. Co-worker competence- lots of good smart people working for the company; however, as with any company you have to wonder how some even have jobs.

    The Downward Spiral

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Hospital Corporation of America full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The teamwork & interaction between the Nurses, Physicians & support staff has been nothing short of outstanding until very recently.

    Cons

    HCA's Charting in Meditech is substandard. Physicians & Nurses alike have openly stated that it is not conducive to providing quality care to patients & that it simply isn't safe. The upper management have cut staffing, cut pay & appear to have an "increase profits now & cash out" corporate mentality. The adoption of an ancient charting system & the recent changes in staffing are a huge warning sign for current or future employees. It appears HCA is no longer interested in providing high quality care for patients or taking care of its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's only a matter of time until something dangerous happens and someone gets hurt. It's very easy to see how busy your staff is (the RFID productivity badges are a dead giveaway). If your goal is to eventually file for bankruptcy because you've lost a big lawsuit due to gross negligence, then you're on the right path. Of course those hard working employees who are too busy to see beyond their weekly paychecks will be the ones who are hurt the most. Shame on
    HCA, KKR & Bain.

    HCA was pleasant at times, but they leave much to be desired in terms of upper management/employee communications.

    I worked at Hospital Corporation of America as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Training was thorough, and compensation was more than adequate for a contract position. Direct team leads were very friendly, yet absent for the most part. There was a great degree of freedom for coaches to interact with clients.

    Cons

    As with any large corporation, this company seemingly values the bottom line rather than employee well being, though they reportedly encourage team work and open communications.
