    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

    Have an excellent group of Physicians and Mid levels as well as a practice manager who serves as an excellent employee advocate!
    It's overall a very well run organization.
    I enjoy a majority of my co-workers company and the physician I work for (as well as the entire group) are top notch, and very easy to work with.

    Cons

    The pay is below industry standard.
    Its becoming more and more of the typical corporate culture. Implementing policies/procedures that serve no practical purpose but have been implemented by a pencil pusher who has no idea of what goes on in clinical practice.
    You have more and more put on your plate over time without any additional compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Do not lose site of the overal goal in healthcare, which is taking care of the patient.
