    I worked at Hospital Corporation of America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The local management was really nice to work for. The hospital cafeteria food is not always great, but it's a cheap meal with your employee discount. Most employees were very friendly. They pay was pretty good despite the workload.

    Cons

    Lack of staff needed to keep up with work load. I've read this is a common complaint with HCA in all areas. Constantly handed projects that had to be done ASAP on top of your other work. Upper management is out of touch with employees and does not know what is going on in hospitals. They expect you to complete performance tests on top of the projects and on top of your regular work. Not much room for advancement and raises are very minimal if given. Many overtime hours worked. This could be a good or bad thing depending on the person but I felt the work/life balance was not great.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people to sustain work loads. Get in touch with your employees and don't have outrageous expectations.

    Pros

    Low level admin tries to do the best they can with what they are given. Which isn't much.

    Cons

    Do more with less staff. Put care at risk and patient satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep top bedside care staff - really listen to them and implement their suggestions not the stockholders. These are educated individuals that are not fooled by rhetoric.

    Diversify upper management. Adding and promoting white women doesn't add diversity.

    I worked at Hospital Corporation of America as a contractor

    Pros

    Nice office, the employees are great, occasionally there is catered lunch, overtime is an option

    Cons

    Management is awful! They micromanage, you have to ask permission to use the restroom. Very high turn over rate because of unrealistic goals

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and make positive changes. Do night hire managers that are young, inexperienced and friends with the director.
