Pros

Incredible opportunities are afforded at HCA. There are great resources, so you can learn as much as you want to.

Cons

There is a certain amount of bureaucracy within each job function, which is one of the down sides to working for such a large company.

Advice to Management

Even though HCA is such a great company, the privatization of the company in 2006 was generally in the best interest of management and their compensation, not necessarily the benefit of the entire organization.

    Pros

    Compensation is better paid than most other areas of IT in the nation. In fact; the money and benefits are the product of a company which builds it's healthcare business around the most money for the least amount of care. This is what they are best at.

    Cons

    This is one of the most messed up operations I have ever seen. They will pay large amounts of money to people with little to no skills. They built an entire PMO and then populated it with under qualified people who would tell them what they wanted to hear. Result? They took a bottom of the barrell project coordinator and made him a manager over their PMO. This ran all the good people off and alienated the IT community from the PMO. At the same time; they only give you enough actual work to keep busy maybe 2 hours out of the day. Unless you master the HCA-patented method of streching work out to look busy so you can complain of long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Why bother; they won't listen.
