Pros

Very stable place, to learn information at your own pace. Culturally diverse and a place that respects diversity

Cons

Very political, good old boy culture is brought in from other places (bosses bring their own boys from other companies and disrupt promotions for those who have spent time at the company). Dealt with a boss who made very "racist" comments but that is not the norm AT ALL in HCSC.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Can be a secure place to be for many years, if you land in a good department with good leadership.

    Cons

    If you can function in a bloated bureaucracy where often times the right hand doesn't know what the left is doing, maybe you can survive here. But say good-bye to your personal life; if you have a strong work ethic and strive to achieve, you will easily put in 60+ hours a week, especially if you're a Grade 16 or higher. Expect to be glued to your laptop and Blackberry night and day. Many departments push their people to the extreme without regard for employee well-being.

    Advice to Management

    HCSC could be on the !00 Best Places to Work List if: 1) the technology infrastructure was brought completely into the 21st century; 2) Management is comprised of people who are qualified and deserve their positions based on ability and competence; not just because someone has been at HCSC since high school and kept getting promotions based on tenure; 3) Employees need to feel free to speak up if their workload is too extreme, without fear of retaliation. The Workforce Engagement process is not a safe haven for everyone with a concern.
