    I worked at HCA Healthcare full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, pretty good bonus structure.

    Cons

    Leadership was poor and did not respect their subordinates. This unfortunately, reflected poorly for a company that , overall, wasn't too bad

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, they are the backbone and deserve to be respected.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at HCA Healthcare full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    401k is acceptable and PTO comparable . Benefits exist for continued education and renewal of certifications. Satisfaction in knowing your commitment to patient care is acknowledged ...

    Cons

    Not 100% vested until 5-6 years of service for 401k, requesting PTO frowned upon by lower / immediate management and needs to be well in advance- a year- sometimes denied depending on staffing! Lower management not familiar with HR policies for continued education benefits or PTO cash out procedures... Lower management can lead one astray just because lack of knowledge in CURRENT policies!! Employees asked their opinion for improvement ideas but then shunned!! Upper management disconnected with daily operations! Numbers driven management!!! AND SO ON

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees - don't put out employee satisfaction surveys requiring employee participation if no intentions of making changes !

    Positive Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at HCA Healthcare full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pay scale is above average Benefits offered are good and decently priced Cross train to learn new jobs Community involvement Offer little extras (ice cream social, lunch bag) throughout year to staff Good place to get some experience but not a company for a career

    Cons

    Most open positions are PRN without benefits Lot of flexing, if full time very seldom work a 40 hour week Lay off staff often, especially those with many years and over 60 Outsource many departments High stress level with fewer staff performing more duties Push department management to cut staff

    Advice to Management

    You act like you care about and appreciate your staff but the only thing you really care about is those daily money numbers.

    Administrative Assistant 
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at HCA Healthcare

    Pros

    Good benefits and adequate time off. Good corporate learning experience. The work is centered around technology despite it's hospital ties. Several meetings with upper regional and local area practice management that give insight into running your own practice as well as connections to do so.

    Cons

    Corporate atmosphere where info may not travel like it should. It is specific to each practice. Senior level management changes dealing with the very detailed rule books are sent via email. Sometimes the changes may seem irrelevant however it is dependent upon your specific area practice. The work can be quite long when reports and quarterly updates are due. All night in some cases if you're at a large practice.

    Advice to Management

    Because each area has it's own management teams the issues lie more with area practice management than upper level issues.
