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

    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.

    Pros

    Dedicated team of professionals, fair compensation, travel, treated with respect by peers and managers

    Cons

    When conducting training, or implementations at newly acquired facilities, have some empathy for those new employees that are worried about their jobs and the impact that an acquisition will have on their new role with the company. Be respectful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Without all your stakeholders, team members that are in the field promoting and putting their best forward for your organization, It's important to acknowledge folks as you walk through your facilities, from the EVS staff to Sr. Leadership. They all make it possible to keep business moving forward- it's important that the "culture" of our organization is not only welcoming and patient centered, but that we respect our own staff as well.

    Pros

    Company really takes great care of their employees.. HCA is a very large organization which give employees a level of comfort that they will be there for the long haul. But at the same time the company has a way of making employees feel like part of a family. HCA is truly a large company with small company values and support.

    Cons

    As with all companies - there could be a more structured secession career planning available.

    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 (less than an 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.
