    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at HCA Healthcare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits, job security, good travel opportunities, location, directors are caring and understanding

    Cons

    Salaries are below market value across the board. Unfair/unsafe patient ratios in both medsurge and critical care environments, HR is always rude, always looks to brush things off and push you away with a “deal with it” or “go figure it out yourself” attitude; not helpful at all!

    I worked at HCA Healthcare full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Self scheduling Can’t think of anything else

    Cons

    High ratios No techs Burnt out coworkers Makes you sign a contract to work there as a new graduate and then will try and make you pay back even though you receive NO bonus or anything- just being allowed to work there and the awful 4 week training course

    Advice to Management

    Care about you employees and their concerns

    I have been working at HCA Healthcare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I work on a great unit. Love going to work. Great managers and co-workers.

    Cons

    Pay could be a lot better. Need more staff.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your nurses better if you want more retention. It shouldn't be a struggle to make a living as a nurse. Travel nurses make a lot more than your actual staff. Doesn't make sense.
