    “HCA modified their PTO accrual policy a few years back. The older plan which still applies to employees hire prior to the change is quite generous...”

    The typical package includes 401k, PTO, and health insurance. There is also opportunities to invest in HCA stock with added perks and programs such as the HOPE Fund which helps HCA employees going through a crisis; think of it as an internal GoFundMe if you will.

    You have for HMO if you want it to be affordable. However, you have to go to a HCA Hospital and use their doctors. This is not good.

    HCA IT&S offers a LOT in benefits. Aside from the usual Stock Options, 401K, medical, dental, vision, they also have Employee Assistance Programs to help with Mental & Behavioral Health issues to include substance abuse. They offer Tuition Reimbursement, Scholarships for the children of Employees, Student Loan Payment Assistance where they pay $150 monthly to your Student Loan Servicer (which is not deducted from your check. You make your regular payments and top of your payments, HCA pays an extra $150 a month). They offer hundreds of discounts for shopping & dining- so much! This company blows me away to be honest.

    HCA advertises their 'generous 401-k' program is one of the best in the industry when recruiting new employees. The reality is much different. HCA drastically reduced their formerly generous benefits to be very stingy. They quote their 9% 401-K match, but the reality is that only applies to employees that have been with the company 25 years. New employees receive a 3% match with a 6 year vesting period. HCA must have felt that was too generous as they made a major change last year. Instead of providing the company match each pay period, they will pay the company match one per year. If you leave the company before December 31rst, you forfeit the entire year's match. The exception is if you retire according to the company's definition of 'retirement.' The company's definition of retirement is you are 55 years old AND have 10 years of service. If you are 67 years old and do not have 10 years of service, you are not considered retired and do not receive that year's 401-k match. While you would expect the annual company match to be paid in January, they will hold the match until the end of the first quarter so they can continue to earn and keep the earnings on your paltry company match. Paid time off accumulates very slowly for new employees and is not negotiable at the time of hire. Although information technology skills transfer across industries, when comparing salaries HCA only considers information technology roles in the healthcare industry in the Nashville area. Long tenure employees have good benefits and were grandfathered into an older compensation program. When Amazon opens their new facility in Nashville and begins hiring technology employees, the current HCA's employee exodus will accelerate.

    Good medical benefits but deductible is a little high. The 401k match is really good; increases the longer you are with the company.

    Great benefits, match 401k at the end of the year

    Any time off has to come out of your PTO. There are no paid holidays (Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Years Day). 401K is okay. Medical benefits stink.
