    Salary, benefits, work environment progressive and high quality of complex care offered, Chippenham and Johnston-Willis Hospitals. Enjoy fast pace and high priority placed on growing services.

    Healthcare in general is challenging and dynamic which is exciting but can also be frustrating. Some amount of control is beyond hospital, but HCA actively engaged in healthcare debate and evolution.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on employee voice and communication in such a large organization

    Pros

    You are treated as an adult. My boss does not micro-manage my job. I have a break for lunch. (last place I worked we did not have time). HCA pays good. My boss seems to care about me. I like my co-workers, they are helpful.

    Cons

    Lack of communication with the rest of the team for those of us who are 3rd shift. MDs order too many exams for no reason.

    Advice to Management

    Organize a meeting with our department once a month, so we can all be on the same page. Don't tell me what to do through other employees.

    Pros

    variety of processes and tasks to keep you busy, opportunity to learn more about supply chain processes

    Cons

    training was from other employees- some of them successful at their job, some of them not. local management lacked skills and training and managed by fear, rather than motivating the team to be better and provide them the resources to do so.

    Advice to Management

    know the job your team performs, your team will excel if you respect them, value them and train them
