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

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Great introduction to healthcare. Company cares about employees for the most part. HCA has air tight internal controls. They also highly encourage promoting from within.

    Cons

    Typically have to work one weekend a month which is not typical in corporate accounting. Work life balance depends on attitude of individual managers.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate for working weekends in some way - comp PTO or pay OT salary. It's a MAJOR con of the job.

    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
