What employees say

Employees like

I enjoy working for HCA. They work hard to understand and meet employees' needs. They want everyone to feel they are a vital part of a successful team. The full time benefits are very competitive. I feel like my opinion is valued and valid.
My manager is always there if I am in a problem I have had to go to them multiple times wether about another employee or an event and they were always there for me if I needed anything!
Love what I do, but I don't think our patients need access to our patient portal. Most of our patients are elderly and don't know how to use a computer
I have learned a lot and feel confident in my skills. My managers trust me which is a good feeling. Work hard and reap the fruits of your labor.
There are good people working there, just none in a position to influence the horrible culture created by the poor nursing leadership.

Employees don't like

Bosses need to actually be involved with improving employees lives. Not just making choices without thought.
My area is highly micromanaged. There needs to be more trust and less emphasis on things that don’t matter.
They are a little too money driven instead of relationships
Need more communication between management and employees
I don’t like the people who don’t work well

Suggestions for improvement

None- for a company the size of HCA they are as organized and communicative as possible. If you want information or training you only need to go to your manager or the very thorough internal website.
Company allows in-service and education to be completed at home but does not allow access to company email. Communication then occurs via third-party apps and Facebook.
Currently, the ppe situation could be improved, but I think that is everywhere
The CEO has done great work preserving jobs during the covid pandemic
It would suggest higher pay and more diverse work force.

Worst rated: Overall compensation for your work


The worst rated factor of HCA Healthcare is Overall compensation for your work with 3.4 points (based on 48 reviews).

For the amount of work done, and the difficulty, my hourly wage definitely needs to be increased
This could definitely improve they are a little low paying
With oncall pay I make a decent amount. Our bonuses include a point system and those points can be used to purchase uniforms, that’s about it. And half the time I’m promised points for my work ethics but never receive them because our department head only has so many to give out and she uses them on her favorite department. I think it’s ridiculous to put a cap on the number of points the department head receives because she is ...
HCA is one of the lowest paying laboratorys in the Denver metro area ... other benefits (vacation, PTO, insurance costs) are just as bad. Cruddy insurance for a lot of money, low PTO which you have to use for holidays when the lab is closed - that isn't automatically paid, you must burn PTO you earned!
Was told that I’m capped and no opportunity for raises after just over a year with the company. Was expected to move campuses (20+ mi from home) when my campus closed— benefits would be 3x as much and no compensation for drive/moving.

Career Development

Career Development rating


Career Development is rated with an average of 3.7 points (based on 47 reviews).

It is the largest hospital Corporation in America. Hundreds of hospitals around the country and hundreds of available open positions.
there aren't many opportunities for nurses to advance outside of furthering their own education
You can take a break in order to go back to school they have on-the-job training
There are a few opportunities but you really have to jump on them to make it work.
This company is willing to take their employees as high as they want to go!!
