    IT&S uses 'management by conflict avoidance'

    I worked at Hospital Corporation of America full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    annual raises
    lots of activities for employees ( company picnics etc)

    Cons

    management is completely disorganized

    some depts have two managers who give conflicting orders

    policies are never enforced. all people have to do is complain in an email and management will give in to them.

    managers give ambiguous directions so when something goes wrong they can say" you should have have used better judgment"

    depts that should be working together don't, and no one is held accountable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    back up your employees , especially when they are following company policy and it upsets people.

    dont throw your employees under the bus just to make yourself look better by 'resolving' their complaint.

    Pros

    Great culture and company vision. Emphasis on ethics, work life balance and continuing education support.

    Cons

    There is a lack of competitive compensation and promotion from within. Company policies developed to reduce employee abuse of leap frogging through promotions to gain an increase in salary have caused the inability for legitimate increases to be awarded from within and now employees question whether they should leave and come back just to be able to be hired back on at the desired promoted position for the greater amount of pay that would be offered to a new hire rather than from within. There is a disconnect to rewarding loyalty.

    Pros

    Pay is at market. Benefits are fine.

    Cons

    Bullying by managers and physicians is rampant. Anyone who speaks up or complains will be unceremoniously fired. The reputation in the community, if you ask around, isn't stellar. I've worked for several healthcare companies and will never work for this one again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up your organization and start with the top leaders. Expect them to act with integrity, honesty and fairness and hold them accountable for it. Performance manage your LEADERS first! No wonder you get sued all the time.

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement; PTO; benefits; 401k;

    Cons

    Seems like they pick and choose what qualifications are necessary for promotions within the company based on how much leadership likes you personally. A lot of politics and unfair advantages for people that are good at talking their way through their jobs and not very good at performing their job duties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication

    Pros

    Ok job. The facility has been updated with high end technology. I have a set schedule 3 days a week. Time off policies is a joke.

    Cons

    Average compensenation and policies seems to only apply to certain people. Management staff is young and lack experience. Need more employee education.
