    Pros

    Stock options and good bonus plan if you are a manager-level or above. Salaries in general are above average for the area.

    Cons

    Depends on the department where you work. Some people really like their jobs, some hate them. You're fortunate if you have a good department leader. We are not so lucky. Bad parking garage across the street. There is pressure to take part in some community relations programs and that is not fair. No one should be pressured to give money or think they are required to give money or donate other things. It's morally wrong. Tenet has a knack for hiring the worst leaders and everyone else suffers. Pompous, entitled, not-tuned-in leaders. Too many things rely on what the senior most leader thinks, including our CEO, but it should not be like this. Decisions should be based on the best interest of patients and employees. All the perks and special treatment goes to the senior leaders who have not earned it. There are also some departments that play favorites, and ours is one of them. Half the people in our department should be fired immediately and everything should be cleaned up. The benefits are bad. Health insurance is weak and that is sad considering that it is Tenet. No paid maternity leave. Weird for a health company that prides itself on its hospitals giving birth to a lot of kids.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making decisions that benefit you personally. You are out of touch with the modern world and things should not run based on your whims. This goes for the CEO, the executive leaders who report to him and the other vice presidents. This is not about you. This is about running an ethical, morale company that really does care about employees and patients. You are clueless about what that means. Leadership is clueless and the human resources team is mostly clueless. Also the human resources team is huge compared to other groups. That doesn't make sense when we need more people in other departments.
