    Pros

    There is a great amount of opportunity within HCA. The company is large in size and has positions all over the US. They do their best to train employees. Staff is genuine and talented.

    Cons

    Getting task accomplish can be difficult because of the size of the company. Things often go through multiple departments and can get lost in the mix.

    Advice to Management

    Do your homework. Really speak to the staff and understand what the driving factors are for some of the common concerns.

    I worked at Hospital Corporation of America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    "No Jerks" policy. Smart, industrious people. Lots of exposure to the healthcare business and physicians. Some great people.

    Cons

    Many managers, few leaders. Tendency to manage by reports, not actions. Degraded over the course of the past few years. Very pharmaceutical-like now.

    I have been working at Hospital Corporation of America full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - They are fair with their employees and reward those who work hard.
    - Plenty of opportunity for career growth if you are diligent and plan a career path
    - They invest heavily in IT which keeps reasonably new technology around all the time.
    - Stable company in a relatively stable industry. Mature standards and procedures across most areas of the business
    - Some IT positions are allowed to work from home if you find the right one

    Cons

    - Inconsistent IT standards between corporate and divisions (also amongst the divisions themselves). A lot of time is spent re-inventing the wheel or figuring out the current procedure for something
    - A LOT of bureaucracy and red tape for certain things. This is definitely a "who you know" kind of company.
    - Inadequate training on an on-going basis
    - PTO and Holidays are mixed into 1 large pool of hours due to the 24/7 nature of Hospitals
    - On-Call required for most IT positions for the same reason.
    - Highly unlikely you will get more than a 3% raise annually unless you jump around a bit

    Advice to Management

    Expand internship programs company wide. Young aspiring professionals would love the opportunity to have a large corporation such as HCA at the beginning of their resume, and the division IT staff could certainly use the extra hands.
