Approves of CEO

I have been working at Community Health Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Strong company. Great leadership at certain levels. Hard working individuals can be recognized and rewarded if properly marketed by management. Good amount of holidays. CEO awards an extra holiday around Christmas. Pay could be better, but other benefits do help a little.

Cons

Some of executive leadership is weak, ineffective, and stuck in old ways. Some lower level management is useless and simply a hinderance to productivity. No bonus structure for non-management.

Advice to Management

Relax dress code. Revisit outdated policies.

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

    Pros

    Stable job. They love to boast about not having laid of employees. Since they use a large contractor force they are able to let them go without touching their employees.

    Cons

    Lower level management and Directors are terrified of the C level. Salaries are low and their are no bonuses or compensation for completing business objectives. Salary levels are defended in meetings as being in line with average field salaries. This is achieved by using basic titles such as "Systems Analyst" or Security Engineer". Since these are very generic titles compared to your job functions it allows CHS to compete on paper.

    Advice to Management

    The C level needs to be shaken up for anything to change at CHS.

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

    Pros

    There are many good people who really care about their jobs and doing them well. Compliance, rules and regulations are followed completely.

    Cons

    They remove good systems that are working well to put in old backward systems which make it much harder to work efficiently. All communication is one way from Corporate down. They do not care to here from the front lines what is really going on because they do not intend to change.

    Advice to Management

    Come out of the corporate office building and listen to people in the hospitals. Employees should not be afraid to say what is actually going on and upper management should actually want to hear the truth,
