It's all about the money, not the people

Practice Administrator (Current Employee)
Sanford, NC

I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time for more than a year

ProsThey have a generous benefits package

ConsUpper management does not include practice level management in decision making or respect their expertise. They do not listen to what employees have to say, and if you do voice your opinion expect your job title to be changed and your position eliminated. In the Sanford,NC market owning Physician practices is new and the people in place trying to run the practices do not have a clue what they have gotten themselves into or how to run a practice.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people in the practices - they have some good advice and experience. Let the managers actually manage and not be puppets to the upper management.

Perfect work/life balance at Corporate office

Accounting (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWork in a beautiful building in Downtown Dallas. No micro management. Pay is above average. You pick your hours. Free parking in a near by garage or free DART pass for individuals who prefer to ride the train or bus. Company is constantly growing with new acquisitions and new outpatient centers. Job security comes with the workload of a successful company. Most temps are hired directly with the company after a few months.

ConsHard for younger individuals to obtain a job at Corporate. Things change so much because of the constant growth.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Overall, positive experience, this is no thanks to management or corporate...

Office Coordinator (Current Employee)

I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThey do employ some excellent physicians, my experience is positive because I was lucky enough to be placed with a fantastic physician.

ConsLots of politics and a lot of the practice administrators are either in over their heads with too many offices to manage, or completely incompetent.

Advice to Senior ManagementKnow all of the roles that your staff is responsible for doing, I shouldn't have to train you on the basics of the position.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Culture Needs Help!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time for more than a year

ProsThey pay for parking and DART passes. Salaries are good.

ConsThe organization culture needs major help within certain departments.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on having department heads really pay attention to the culture within their business units. One bad apple can make working here hell.

They are a prime example of what is wrong with US healthcare

Contract Physician (Current Employee)
New Orleans, LA

I have been working at Tenet Healthcare part-time for more than 5 years

ProsNone that I can think of except that the checks did not bounce.

ConsUnderhanded and no loyalty to physicians, other employees, or in the communities where their hospitals are located.

Do NOT care all about the atient, which is all that should matter in healthcare.

Advice to Senior Managementconfess and repent- maybe more whistle blower lawsuits?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Professional

Pharmacist (Current Employee)
Indio, CA

I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time for more than 5 years

ProsLike all corporates it depends on your immediate management as well as corporate. My immediate management are really good. I am left to do my job , for the most part

ConsCorporate decisons sometimes astound me, even regional decisions. But most often those for each institution mad e at CEO level and A team level. Often No aligment between long term / major goals and many decisions.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook and see where the heart and sole of a particular institution is and spend your resources there. Also stop treating people like direct variable costs. Managing down to 100 % (or lower) productivity is a dangerous game. When you expect 120% one day you are going to find it difficult, if not impossible, to get it. It's give and take. Don't forget that. Look at the long term/nig picture. Not qurater to quarter, month to month

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
