    I have been working at HCA Healthcare full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    This company is very supportive of it's leadership, and invests into our growth. They also tend to promote from within. The culture is wonderful as are the relationships among our peers. HCA is also a very ethical company, which is important to me.

    Cons

    I can't think of many cons to working here. This has been a great place to work and I hope that I have many more years with HCA.

    Advice to Management

    I hope that HCA continues to be such a strong supporter of it's staff and leadership. I appreciate all of the opportunities that I have been given here.

    I worked at HCA Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    HCA has a tremendous amount of resources and they are open to any ideas that promote growth. Very qualified, professional, experienced, bright staff and executives. Very professional.

    Cons

    Micro management from a division level, extreme amounts of pressure on initiatives that don't necessarily make sense, and attempts to standardize all process across 250 hospitals when there are so many variables between markets. In addition, HR processes are broken. Very difficult to get through the hiring process and even worse when you separate. Issues with pay, unclear and sketchy guidelines around using PTO and overtime. Still have a way to go to truly understand Behavioral Health in a Med Surg environment. Generally excellent people, but a BIG MACHINE.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on improving hiring and separation processes. This will impact people's tendency to refer. Invest in a new EMR system.

    I have been working at HCA Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Large company that has opportunities in various locations, which gives you the opportunity to move around.

    Cons

    Does not care too much about the employees, especially when it comes to benefits. A great deal of focus on the bottom line. In addition, the company is extremely slow to move when it comes to new strategies. Lastly, there are a number of managers there that only want to hire individuals like themselves. No focus or care for diversity in the workforce.

    Great benefits, management helps with other opportunities, and great for making connections in the healthcare industry.

    Advice to Management

    My manager is fair and communicates effectively with all of us.
