I have been working at Hospital Corporation of America full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

- They are fair with their employees and reward those who work hard.
- Plenty of opportunity for career growth if you are diligent and plan a career path
- They invest heavily in IT which keeps reasonably new technology around all the time.
- Stable company in a relatively stable industry. Mature standards and procedures across most areas of the business
- Some IT positions are allowed to work from home if you find the right one

Cons

- Inconsistent IT standards between corporate and divisions (also amongst the divisions themselves). A lot of time is spent re-inventing the wheel or figuring out the current procedure for something
- A LOT of bureaucracy and red tape for certain things. This is definitely a "who you know" kind of company.
- Inadequate training on an on-going basis
- PTO and Holidays are mixed into 1 large pool of hours due to the 24/7 nature of Hospitals
- On-Call required for most IT positions for the same reason.
- Highly unlikely you will get more than a 3% raise annually unless you jump around a bit

Advice to Management

Expand internship programs company wide. Young aspiring professionals would love the opportunity to have a large corporation such as HCA at the beginning of their resume, and the division IT staff could certainly use the extra hands.

    I worked at Hospital Corporation of America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They have a excellent benefits package, friendly atmosphere and flexible work hours. Overall it is very stable company and the exceptations are very consistent.

    Cons

    For some people, there are many chances to advance for others no room to advance for others management has their picks if you aren't in good with management you don't stand a chance.

    Advice to Management

    They need to show more appreciation for there employees. Should require management to take diversity training. They need to help groom employees weakness to make it their strengths. They don't inform employees what they need to do to move forward. The company has outside firm to do employee survey but you never see any results. They don't value the employees that are over 55. They don't offer an affordable retirement package for your medical. I feel they should pay the same for active and retired employees.


  2. "Overall good company"
