    Pros

    Opportunities for growth. A culture that understands work / life balance but, also embraces hard workers. Most are go getters.

    Cons

    Because HCA encourages growth often there is turnover. However, that turnover is usually from within the company and transitions are typically easy for other staff.

    Advice to Management

    No real advice here or criticism. Continue to develop from within, maintain the HCA culture, and keep the focus on patient care and outcomes.

    Pros

    Good coworkers, reasonable expectations in terms of work expectations. Never expected to work unreasonable amounts of overtime. Not the best, either.

    Cons

    Low pay compared to industry; supporting lower tier hospitals that make you feel genuinely bad about working for the company. Less than honest business practices.

    Advice to Management

    Very passive and everything is need to know. Its not like we work for the NSA or anything like that. Constantly being told how good our job in order to convince us how good our job is.

    Pros

    They provide pretty good benefits for a reasonable price. Lots of hospitals around the U.S. makes moving around very easy.

    Cons

    They are a very cheap hospital that does not recognize with raises and underpays its good nurses. They will play games when it comes to getting a raise.

    An abundant amount of career advancement opportunities and an excellent company culture.

    This is a very large organization that can be difficult to navigate at times. However, I view that as a challenge and have enjoyed every moment.
