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

    Some groups are innovative, work well together and are productive.

    Pros

    They regularly make payroll and do not miss paying people on payday.

    Cons

    Filthy working conditions. Quarterly lay-offs, every quarter. No upward mobility for the average employee. Low starting pay and twenty-five cent an hour raise for a glowing annual review.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the patients and the employees and keep the work place clean. Regularly scheduled lay-offs make for a scary workplace experience.

    Pros

    Great benefits to the staff and great hours to work with if you need the money. People are nice and helpful.

    The unit is understaffed which sometimes could cause a headache. Normally pretty good to their staff just depending on the day.

    Please fix the staffing issue and management.

    Pros

    Great flexibility of hours of work dependent on current needs of contracts. Very diversified in work load and challenging day to day.

    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.
