    Pros

    Diversity was awesome. Benefits are great. Staff works well as a team and the patients are well cared for.

    Pros

    Great Corporate Culture, Hands on C-Level support, Listen to employee concerns, Manager involvement in personal and professional growth

    Cons

    Staffing ratio not adequate to meet patient needs/demands; Nurses have 5-6 patients on a routine basis; Nurse Assistants have 15-17 patients on a routine basis; Food options for patients and employees is limited and expensive - most people bring their own food from home or order from nearby restaurants located outside of the hospital. Daily expectations for routine patient services can exceed staff capabilities

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Hospital Corporation of America part-time

    Pros

    The benefits cannot be beat! Free insurance. Matching 401K. Employee stock purchase. Even if I wanted to quit I'd stay for the benefits.

    Cons

    We often work under staffed. The pay is good but not as high as some of the other hospitals nearby.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that in order to remain the safest hospital with such high quality, there has to be enough staff to do the job.

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

    Pros

    Opportunity for career advancement. I've worked in multiple areas of this company in various roles, always advancing. Leadership is focused on creating an inspiring workspace. The environment is bright and open. Senior leaders are welcoming and enjoy talking with employees. I see leadership in the cafeteria having conversations with other team members.

    Cons

    Parking can be rough at certain times of the day. Multiple campuses in neighboring towns makes conference scheduling a little more complicated.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be personable. Invest more into technology and infrastructure support for long-term success.

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

    Pros

    Our team has some of the best people I have ever worked with over a 30 year career. Great team spirit with a team doing important work. The leadership has good strategic vision and the people doing the work understand what needs to be done.

    Cons

    There is a huge middle layer of management that seems only to exist to sustain itself. Many lifetime employees who seem to work to ensure their careers remain intact instead of focusing on getting things done.

    Advice to Management

    Buy into your own vision: Give strategic projects long term budgets that don't require endless work by excess managers just to justify the project budget each year.

    Good stability and ranked one of the best companies to work in IT in the US.

    No room for advancement unless you are in the "old boys" club.

    Advice to Management

    Look for internal candidates before dismissing them for outside candidates.
