    I worked at Hospital Corporation of America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you want to work in the medical field HCA is a decent place to start. There are opportunities to move up or transfer within the company which is nice.

    Cons

    Most of the cons are specific to the practice I worked in but I think it stemmed from the head- which is a for-profit medical corporation. There is extremely low pay/yearly raises for experienced employees. I personally saw patient and employee safety at risk. When concerns were brought to management nothing was done even though several employees asked management several times for a response. When corporate compliance was brought in, nothing happened either even though a swift follow up was promised. In the situation I witnessed, HCA covered for an incompetent management team that put patient and employee safety at risk. Our practice had 5 managers in 3 years and most employees who could leave the practice, did just that. Our practice was then short staffed and the few employees who remained were expected to sacrifice their sanity and personal lives for the good of a practice that did not care about them.

    Advice to Management

    Employee opinions are sometimes more valuable than physician opinions.

    Pros

    Wonderful people to work with. Great schedule. Clean, professional, modern facility. Very good patient reviews. Caring and competent supervisors. Nice garden.

    Cons

    Low pay for experienced RN’s. So-so cafeteria. Having to work with mountainstar’s transfer center is a nightmare. Feels like instead of working with us, they are working against us.

    Pros

    The usual benefits one would expect from a large publicly traded company.

    Cons

    Hourly employees are limited to 40 hours per week with no OT offered period. Salaried employees work 70+ hrs a week. No work life balance. It takes almost 3 months to get benefits (medical, vision, dental, PTO) which is longer than most.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up. Offer benefits like OT or work remotely to administrative staff.

    Pros

    Not a lot of work to do other than busy work. As a PM it's all about babysitting people.

    Cons

    Babysitting people that get paid hourly. As a manager it's tough being in between the doctors and corporate superiors. Working with doctors who don't really care about how the clinic is managed.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to challenge the doctors and hire people who want to push healthcare in a better direction. Back your managers if you are an area or market director.
