    I have been working at Hospital Corporation of America as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Ability to work with others is very easy and discussion between divisions is very open. They are very understanding of life outside of work. Management has been very response to the needs of the developers and take their word when a decision needs to be made

    Cons

    Process for new software applications is burdensome and can be tedious at times. Time-off policy is very easy but documenting your weekly hours can be pain mainly due to the program they use

    Pros

    Positive culture, many training opportunities, supportive colleagues and management, many chances to stretch and grow both professionally and personally. Benefits very good and there are many corporate perks. All manner of discounts on things like software, store discounts, and free Frist Museum memberships, to name a few things. Management encourages servant leadership relationships and teamwork. It is a very uplifting environment in which to work. The company not only encourages community outreach for the rank and file, management also works right along side. It's amazing! Management listens to their employees and reacts positively and does their best to address concerns and make appropriate changes. Work-life balance is excellent.

    Cons

    Communication can be challenging in the corporate environment.

    Remember that communication is key.

    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.
