    I worked at Community Health Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoy the old days when there were less than 100 hospitals. Everyone knew everyone. It's not close knit like that anymore.

    Cons

    Expectations can be unrealistic.

    Advice to Management

    Remember without your staff's hard work, you won't succeed.

    Pros

    It is better than being unemployed

    Cons

    constant oversite by the corporate entity, admin they put in place at the hospital was less than great

    Advice to Management

    It is a systematic problem- you have to be service-oriented to make money and making money is the only thing that matters. I believe the true motivation comes out and that is why you do not succeed.

    Pros

    In my department which is ESS, the work environment is really laid back. Great people work here. I love my coworkers. I feel like the company cares about us. We have parties every year with food provided by the company. And my department has potlucks and activities. It can be fun.

    Cons

    I just wish that my particular position was paid more for the amount of work that we do.

    I worked at Community Health Systems full-time

    Pros

    The building is kind of nice. It's in close proximity to some good restaurants.

    Cons

    Executives go around on bonus day waving their checks in your face. You definitely know where you stand on the totem pole in this company as you are reminded every day.

    Advice to Management

    Let Wayne Smith go. He is the most paranoid, overcompensated executive in the healthcare industry. His paranoia and decisions made on a whim based on the fact that all his top executives went to a competitor led to the ultimate downfall of this company. Complete and utter disaster.
