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

    Pros

    12 hour shifts are nice and there is plenty of overtime to be had.

    Cons

    HCA is a typical corporation, with its main concerned being its bottom line. The nurses and techs are grossly overworked and underpaid. We are instructed, in so many words, to treat our "clients" like they are staying in a 5 star hotel.
    Every last tech on my floor HAS to work 4-5 12-hour shifts per week to make ends meet.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your techs better. Better staffing for them and RNs. Offer better benefit packages. Without us, you wouldn't HAVE a business.
