Attitude towards older colleagues

They have preferential treatment to those who have been there alot longer to the point it makes all new people very upset and if you were in before you left if you come back you are treated the same and get perks others don't.

Career Development

You cannot really grow their

Office / Work Environment

It's extremely competitive and it's annoying how much they brag.

Company Image

They try hard to make their company seem really great

Job Security

High turnover watched 15 people get hired and fired over my year and a half there

Workplace Safety

They have a super old security guard who isn't gonna save anyone in an emergency

Challenging Work

They want you to ask veterans who are dying of cancer to pay their bills even though the hospital made the mistake of billing Medicare instead of VA which pays 100% so they are left with these 3000 dollar bills and you can read where it says they turned in there VA approval for surgery and the hospital just didn't want to wait for the VA to pay. They don't care if it's not the person's fault it doesn't matter if they are dying they just want the money.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They need to have a way to fix a hospitals mistakes if I see where someone has been fighting tooth and nail for a certain insurance to be billed since day one and it wasn't then that is not their fault they have that bill.

What I like about the company

The elevator that's about it. The people I work with.

What I dislike about the company

The fact that there is favoritism and also if workers get into arguments management tells them to take care of it on the floor instead of mediating and says they don't want to get involved.

Company Culture

All medical coders are remote so you don't get a lot of interaction unless it's negative.

Support from management

They don't answer any question they don't want to. Multiple coders have experienced this and denied requests to be trained in other Specialties and other EMR systems.

Teamwork

Hard not to when it's mandatory.

Freedom to work independently

At the end of every day you fill out a detailed report of your production down to the 15 minute increments of what you did. You have to help who they tell you to help and receive help from whomever they decided assign to you. And this is Nationwide so it doesn't matter that they are likely from a different state with different rules that you don't know.

Internal Communication

Management either doesn't know or doesn't bother to tell you. Things fall through the cracks all the time.

Career Development

Multiple Coders have experienced multiple requests for further training be denied and there is no room for advancement.

Environmental Friendliness

Every response if you get any at all from management is very PC and usually doesn't even address the topic.

Work-Life Balance

Strict rules about schedule changes which make it difficult to have balance (you may adjust your schedule only once a year. You must ask for time off more than 24 hours in advance and you will be denied your PTO if there are other coders who asked for it off already.) And the last week of every month they make up a mandatory schedule with 10 and 12 hour days and that includes weekends.

What I like about the company

All coding positions are remote. The company supplies the computer and monitors. Only full-time is available and health benefits are an option. As well as 401k and PTO.

What I dislike about the company

When I started I worked for a division of HCA and it was a completely different experience than it is now. It was wonderful. Now that they've Consolidated all divisions of HCA into one Central Coding unit it is micro managed and insulting and frustrating.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Offer mentorship with another employee in the same unit for new employees. I am a new grad nurse and it's my first time working in a hospital. Planning care and prioritizing tasks to care for 7 patients on a medical surgical trauma floor is overwhelming. Patient care would be better if nurse to patient ratios were only 1:4 versus 1:7.

What I like about the company

Great place to work as a nurse! You are welcomed and made to feel part of a team from day one. Everyone is very nice and helpful. There are a lot of training events offered through their computer based online training and on-site at no charge. They foster teamwork, empower you , and provide many employee recognition programs. The first day on unit my manger asked me to fill out a sheet about myself. What my favorite color was, my favorite place to vacation, favorite song, type of candy, how I like to be recognized and a personal quote. I have only been with HCA for about 3 months but I feel appreciated and like I'm a valued member of a family.

What I dislike about the company

I wish that they offered more opportunities for preventative healthcare in the local community.
