    I have been working at Community Health Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The first pro is the people, especially on my team (in the IS department). Everyone looks out for each other and wants to see teammates succeed in whatever they are doing. New ideas are welcome as well as questions. The second pro is that CHS is a growing company with lots of improvements made and many more to come. It's an exciting atmosphere to be part of a company coming into its own. It's easy to see that executive leadership is trying hard to take the company in the right direction for everyone. It's fast paced and never boring...an overall great place to work. Oh, one more thing, some weeks can require extra hours or time to finish a project, but work-life balance is very important (on my team anyway) and I don't feel my family suffers at the expense of my career.

    Cons

    I love my job and all of its challenges...so I can't think of any that I would consider cons. Sometimes people complain about the dress code, but I think it looks very nice and professional to dress in business attire and we get business casual Fridays where we can even wear nice jeans (unless you are management). Either way, no cons from me.

    Advice to Management

    Continue expecting the best from your direct reports and we will continue to want to give you our best! Thank you for setting a great example!

    Pros

    There are many chances for growth. The company allows for transactions to other departments in case you feel the need for a more challenging role.

    Cons

    There have been issues with head strong leadership in the past but that seems to be getting fixed with recent restructuring.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid of hiring highly skilled folks and please find time to grow your knowledgeable employees.

    Pros

    Good place to build experience. You are given the ability to take ownership of new things with minimal supervision. It's easy to look like a superhero because most people coast.

    Cons

    There is a lot of situational amnesia and lack of accountability, leading to a poor corporate culture. The underachievers are treated just like the overachievers, there is no reason to achieve anything.

    Advice to Management

    It's okay to turn people down for jobs. Not everyone can do everything, potential employees should have to sell you on them, not the other way around.

    I worked at Community Health Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There was a cafeteria on the first floor of the same building.

    Cons

    Execs resent suggestions of common sense approach to completing projects. Looked forward to going to work at the beginning; with change of I.T. dept Mgr, new manager had multiple faces, and atmosphere became similar to dictatorship and walking on egg-shells. Word to the wise, be sure you are happy with your role and income going in, because it won't get better.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent, don't internalize, take it personally and hold grudges when being given helpful suggestions to solve problems to meet deadlines.
