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

    Pros

    Pros were the pay was decent and you could chose what hours to work

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime for no reason and stupid policies

    Advice to Management

    Dont make people work late when they have nothing to do, its useless and irritating. The job title I had was an "accounting" clerk and I did anything but accounting. Work load was extremely small, way too many people in the department. Ease up on the policies, being one minute late should not result in a write up, things do happen.

    Pros

    Not micromanaged. Get extra days surrounding holidays.

    Cons

    When promoted there is only a 3% raise. So if an analyst is hired off the street with the same title, they may be making 10-20% more than you and you will be training them. The company does not care if you are making 10,000 less than another analyst if you've been there and been promoted within.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Manager is very nice and easy going and allows employees to work a flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Benefits are terrible. Two weeks vac for first five years is insulting and not the norm anymore. Insurance is expensive and doesnt cover enough. Yes there are separate sick days but if you are never sick Id rather have more vac or lumped together as pto. I was never trained on the job that I was hired to do. The outgoing lady didnt want to or know how to train so she didnt. Rather than have someone else train me they changed my job alltogether and hired temps to do my original job. Makes no sense. Pay is very low. I took a big paycut coming here.

    Advice to Management

    Improve benefits, increase pay, invest in training from proper personnel rather than having HR say they were going to train then toss you under the bus so your job gets changed to something completely different, you get replaced by temps, etc.
