    I have been working at Hospital Corporation of America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a lot of opportunity for advancement for those wanting to move around or grow within the company.
    We are a very mission focused organization. Patient-centered care is what we're all about.
    Employees are encouraged to try to ideas and be innovative without the fear of what might happen should we fail. Decisions are data-driven, so we can easily identify what hasn't worked and adjust from there.
    There is a good amount of energy put into making employees feel safe and welcome in the workplace. I enjoy the diversity of thought in our teams.

    Cons

    Being such a large organization, enterprise-wide communication can be a struggle.
    Family related leave program is lacking, but leadership is listening to feedback so I'm hopeful for a positive change.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to employees for feedback. The annual employee survey is terrific.
    Consider making a bold statement by supporting a family leave program that shapes how the entire healthcare industry develops its own program.

    Pros

    Working inside, patients generally nice. Most employees are good natured and the atmosphere is good if you are fortunate to work with them.

    Cons

    If you are a brown noser you can get away with anything, otherwise watch your back. Raises suck unless, again, you are with the "in" crowd.

    Advice to Management

    Very good ideas to create a good working environment that provides excellent patient care, but unfortunately they mostly rely on managers input. When the turnover rate is higher at one lab facility than the entire HCA lab system, there is a problem with the leadership of said facility....the numbers don't lie.

    Friendly management , supportive , the door is always open.Encouraged to climb the clinical ladder. You can switch to different departments after 6 months with no hard feelings

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are equitable. They have the best doctors and equipment with whom I've had the pleasure to care for patients.

    Cons

    Middle management is not the best.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to hire unskilled middle management, please teach them the job. You are teaching them how to 'talk the talk' instead of how to 'walk the walk'. Small facility in a small community is not always best served by teach political correctness over actual skills.

    Pros

    decent salary, team player environment, management friendly, great hours in the clinic

    Cons

    PTO bank unfair as in they force you to use PTO for holidays when it should be a choice to take unpaid since the company chooses not to pay for holiday pay. PTO is something where one should be able to use for vacation or sick time only.

    Advice to Management

    look into processes and procedures more clearly, look at benefits to see if they really BENEFIT your employees
