    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.

    Pros

    Wonderful company that gives back to the community and offers lots of advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Only Directors and above bonus. PTO is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Set up a bonus structure as incentive for all employees. Understand when you hire experienced employees that more PTO is needed.

    I have been working at HCA Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great learning opportunity for a new nurse graduate. Developed a strong sense of time management and understanding of various diseases and courses of treatment. Learned to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team.

    Cons

    HCA emphasizes productivity, profit and bottom line. They push their nurses to the limit and sometimes too far. Very high turnover rate. Not a lot of senior nurses, all new grads on my unit.

    Advice to Management

    Stick up for your staff when directors and upper management pressure you to achieve better numbers. There is a balance and when profit is the bottom line, patient care and patient experience declines.
