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

Pros

Competititve starting salary and opportunity for growth

Cons

As you are promoted the small raises you get, do not keep your salary in line with industry. I find myself ranging from extremely busy for weeks on end to no important work for a month.

Advice to Management

Better prioritize work load for employees

    I have been working at Community Health Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company culture, values - such as integrity and honesty. A culture of excellence. Very professional work environment. Things are done in an orderly manner. Systems in place for most things.

    Cons

    Compensation for non-management employees could be better. Adding a bonus plan for non-management staff would help the company be more competitive and would help retain valuable staff.

    Advice to Management

    Add a bonus plan for non-management staff.

    I worked at Community Health Systems as a contractor

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn new skillset
    Ability to move up rapidly if you are good at the political game

    Cons

    You will be expected to work up to 90 hours per week to complete projects
    Incompetency at senior levels
    Disregard for employees health, well being and family concerns
    Tendency towards arrogance and dominance from superiors...micro-management from multiple sources leads to confusion and errors
    Deadlines are inflexible and blame is passed down the food chain
    Communication from corporate to remote sites is often too late for the situation
    Contractors are treated like disposable, subhuman vermin
    Overtime pay for contract work is straight...not time and a half as per industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate your organization objectively from the outside. Listen to the complaints of current and former employees and contractors: there is a consistency to their arguments and they all point to unreasonable expectations, poor communications, an "old-boy" network and growing pains reflected in inadequate resources and delayed response. You cannot retain talent by working them to the very brink of their sanity. You cannot retain talent by denying them family time. You cannot retain talent by discouraging lunch breaks. You will only retain the desperate, the meek and the dictatorial types and will continue to spend an inordinate amount of your budget on hiring and training instead of the infrastructure..which is sorely lacking. This organization needs restructuring from the top down and reviews will continue to be poor until significant change is implemented
