    I have been working at Hospital Corporation of America

    Pros

    Being able to occasionally help people. Sometimes being able to utilize what you learned in Nursing School. Having twelve hour shifts available is nice.

    Cons

    Too many to fit in less than a novel. The way that management treats employees. The way that management seems never to have the back of the employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that you are a health care organization that is supposed to overall help people. The words sound nice but actually seeing some action would be nicer.

    Pros

    Pay was ok Yep pay only.

    Cons

    Terrible management that is is always trying to impress itself. They are afraid of of upper management, afraid of loosing patients and afraid of losing their jobs, hence they walk around scared and intimidate the subordinates. Layoffs are common as they try to show they are"managing". They try to appear "happy" but it is a facade that hides the behind doors unrest and unhappiness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership growth, dynamic environment to work, top level pay. Constantly changing work environment with changes in the work environment. Big uses of Information Technology as well as expanding the use of IT to improve patient care efficiencies and effectiveness.

    Cons

    Highly regulated environment too work under. Medicare, Medicaid, HIPAA, Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Culture could use embrace more of a team approach toward it's staff. Consistent accountability needed.

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent pay, and a lot of room for advancement if you are willing to work long hours. If you are willing to put in the time, you will be recognized for it.

    Cons

    It is not always the most efficient place to work as there is a recognition premium paid to those who put in 60 hours of work over those doing 70 hours of work in 50 hours. It's in the culture, though, so if you don't mind working long hours, there will be plenty of others doing the same. If you want to move up without working 55-60 hour weeks, this is probably not the company for you. For me, I felt the company had good values and culture, the culture (work/life balance) just didn't match my personality at that point in my career. It would probably be a better fit now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't have any suggestions to make, I think they are losing some good talent with their work-constantly culture, but I also think they practice what they preach. There will always be a stream of talented workers who are willing to work constantly, so why change what works?

    I have been working at Hospital Corporation of America full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very stable company. Above market pay. Tons of business growth.

    Cons

    "Business First" environment that can be a little overwhelming for IT staff unless you remember that their business is patient care. Very traditional IT roles. Not keeping pace with changes in converged roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Begin thinking outside of the box regarding fusion of roles in response to evolving technologies.
