    I have been working at HCA Healthcare full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great Benefits. 401K matching. Work life balance needs improving. Friendly people.

    Cons

    Senior Accountants control must of all the daily functions for PSG in terms of Hiring, Firing, Advancement, Accounting Projects, and team building. Managers usually coast on their teams' success to finish out close and discipline staff if deadlines are missed due to intercompany entries not booked by the hospital. Staff 1 and Staff 2 accountants are treated unfairly and over worked due to deadlines. Upper Management will give false hope of advancement or opportunities to move to another position in HCA. Senior staff have favorites in there teams and show them more favorable in promotions than other workers in the group. HCA does monitor there company evaluation by department. If the department score is low than Management will try to weed out the people that submitted a low score.

    Advice to Management

    N/A. PSG will allow there seniors to decide all aspect in team decisions causing good people to leave because they may not be buddy buddy with upper managment

    I have been working at HCA Healthcare full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The office is really nice. The people are great to work with. Job expectations are exactly as they stated they would be. Benefits are very good.

    Cons

    The first few months are stressful only because there is a lot to learn initially. Get past that and it's the best job you'll find.

    I have been working at HCA Healthcare full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The usual benefits one would expect from a large publicly traded company.

    Cons

    Hourly employees are limited to 40 hours per week with no OT offered period. Salaried employees work 70+ hrs a week. No work life balance. It takes almost 3 months to get benefits (medical, vision, dental, PTO) which is longer than most.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up. Offer benefits like OT or work remotely to administrative staff.

    I have been working at HCA Healthcare for more than a year

    Pros

    Coworkers, management. Team building activities. Supportive. Staff upgrade program is a real plus! You can progress to a staff II and staff III when you are ready without having to wait for an internal job posting.

    Cons

    Processes could be more efficient. Having to work every July 4th and Labor Day because on month end close is a bummer.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a little to make processes and systems more efficient and you will be in a great place.

    I have been working at HCA Healthcare

    Pros

    Salaries are OK, that's the best thing about this company.

    Cons

    There are to many software systems used within HCA, no uniformity. This makes work alot more time consuming than it has to be for little simple things. This is insane!!!

    Advice to Management

    Invest in technology, there are to many software systems that are outdated used by HCA. - WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY! Also this will make your employees lives more easier.

  10. "Good company, but terrible work/life balance"

    I have been working at HCA Healthcare

    Pros

    HCA is a great company with good benefits and decent salaries.

    Cons

    Physician Services is a terrible place to work. It's very disorganized and usually under staffed. Also, they have cut all of the staff increases to the point that it isn't worth working towards a promotion, because they'll give you a small salary increase, but bump your hours by 10 hours per week.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the former staff increases and change the work expectations among the managers.
