    Pros

    The initial training is fairly extensive, which is necessary. There is also consistent refresher/skill-building training after one hits the floor. The management team within the department is outstanding. Likely some of the best I've ever experienced. Expectations are clearly communicated. The atmosphere and culture among the staff is a very warm, fun, and close-knit. Its rare to see so many exceptional people on one team. Other departments within HROC seem to suffer from morale issues, but the staff we interface with are invariably friendly and helpful. The work can get repetitive and monotonous, but the diversity of functions that one can grow into help keep you intellectually stimulated over time. Also, its a relatively new facility, so there's still some dust setting with regards to processes and procedures, which adds an element of change that keeps things interesting.

    Cons

    The benefits are somewhat lacking and unnecessarily complicated. Not terrible, by any stretch, but just not what one would expect from HCA.

    Advice to Management

    To the department management, keep on keeping on. You've assembled a great team and are supporting them well. To the facility management, please help out the other departments. There's some miserable folks over there.

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

    Pros

    Worked in a clinic with great people great Drs. Dr's tell us we are appreciated. Coworkers are always trying to help each other with work load even if its not part of their job.

    Cons

    Holiday pay must be earned through hrs worked (PTO).25 cent yr raises. Do front desk and billing. Low pay for job duties. No phone tree we answer all calls..typically 184-200 plus a day. Bonus driven so alot of things like exrta help isnt in the budget. Alot of busy work given/expected. Little appreciation from corporate level. Job burn out is rampant. Concerns are ignored all suggestions are denied stating corporate wont allow. Corporate is out of touch with work flow and jobs in the office setting

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people who actually perform the jobs. Don't discount ideas or suggestions simply because someone my not have a college degree

    Pros

    HCA owns many hospitals throughout the country, at my hospital employees are supported and encouraged to grow and expand their knowledge of nursing practice.

    Sometimes when working for a giant corporation you may feel like just a number for example when trying to deal with the centralized benefits coordination.

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

    Pros

    I am a patient transporter that works specifically for the radiology dept. Given that, I work with all floor staff involved in direct patient care. Pretty much all the staff I work with is super supportive and helpful, and completely enhances the patient experience.

    Cons

    Not everyone is fully trained on certain equipment. I have intensive experience working with some floor equipment and I find myself re-educating new staff.

    Advice to Management

    CONTINUING EDUCATION. Inpatient floor nurses require more intensive and regular retraining on various equipment, especially new staff. However, fantastic newer staff well picked for the field given work ethic and striving to learn.

    Great flexibility, higher than average salary, wonderful work-life balance but average benefits.
