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.

Company Culture

Leadership does not embrace culture. Look at the makeup? Poor outcomes.

Support from management

Leadership has poor expectations. No facility direction.

Teamwork

Hourly employees work well together. Management is out for themselves.

Freedom to work independently

No, never felt trusted by individual management. It was personal! The best is yet to come.

Internal Communication

Word of mouth has been the best level of communication. Leadership is lost throughout the organization.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Long term employees are lost!

Career Development

For this to be a for profit company they lack for employees to get training.

Work-Life Balance

At best, the organization does somewhat of a decent job with life balance.

Company Image

Reasonably sound

Job Security

No job security! They will cut you in a heartbeat!

Handicapped Accessibility

Reasonable

Workplace Safety

Basic

Challenging Work

Very proud of the work that was produced.

Inclusive / Diverse

Big joke! Look at the make up of the company. Poor, poor, poor choices of leadership. This company breaths its own. No connection with the outside think tank. The glass ceiling will fall! Just look around at who is facilitating the direction. This is inclusive of shareholders.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Look at whom is representative of the community. Folks at this facility is not, I mean is not reflected of the community most are outsiders from other hca facilities or the backwoods of Georgia.
