    A great place to start your IT career in a hot industry!

    Data Architect (Current Employee)
    Nashville, TN

    ProsIt is a very laid back culture at HCA. You get to work with new technology and very smart people. The leadership team is very understanding and laid back. If you are trying to decide where to start your career, this is a great place.

    ConsNo bonuses and raised are based on percentage of current salary. You need to make sure you get a high starting salary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe only advice is to work on competitive salaries compared to the market.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Slow going

    CPC (Current Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsI work with friendly people with in my immediate group.

    Depends on management

    Senior Data Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsOur team has great management, option to work from home, utilize flexible work hours, promotes work/life balance, encourages community involvement, and allows each individual team player to shine in their own job.

    ConsNot all departments or management styles are created equal

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider corporate-wide, all corporate departments and subsidiaries for WFH and Flex benefits.

    Not very good

    Medical Office Specialist (Former Employee)
    Kansas City, MO

    ProsSome of the employees really are great to work with, but most should not be working in a medical field.

    ConsThey care more about the bottom line then they do patient care. Hiring uncertified MA's that don't know a generic drug from a brand name.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey need to care more about patients and employee's

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Will never work for this company again!

    RN Charge Nurse (Former Employee)
    Kansas City, MO

    ProsI worked for HCA for over 20 years. They were very conscious of patient satisfaction and good care. Recently. It was all about money and dangerously cutting staff. Several patient falls, and only hiring new grads. Having unbearable assignments of up to 8 or more patients with the charge nurse at times having to take just as many in order to take some of the load off the nurses. Very poor nurse moral, and no plans in place to make any of this better. Finally left, vowing to never let a hospital turn me in to a nurse I know I never want ro be.
