    Pros

    Can't think of anything. They have hospitals everywhere so if I wanted to relocate hopefully I can go to a tenet facility.

    Cons

    Computer system is awful. They buy systems that are out of date and the the least user friendly that most of us have seen including the IT people that come to train us. Yes we know we have a system that is YEARS old!!

    Advice to Management

    You have you're hands in to many pots and cut corners where you should have the best.

    Pros

    You get to work with some wonderful, talented and very hard-working colleagues. In addition, salaries at Tenet tend to be very competitive for both the market, industry and skill level. They do reward their employees financially - and for that I am grateful. I also believe that, overall, from a financial standpoint, Tenet is a very well-run company. I also believe that Trevor Fetter, the CEO, is incredibly smart and is probably one of the most skilled CEOs I've ever seen. That deserves to be said.

    Cons

    Many departments at headquarters (which Tenet calls "the Home Office") are poorly managed. Leaders can be incredibly difficult to work with, changing their minds at whim and expecting you to work sometimes ridiculous hours (and often do the job of more then one person - literally!). There's no such thing as work-life balance for many leaders at Tenet. Instead, they refer to "work-life integration." Finally, at headquarters, every single employee is forced to work in a cubicle - including the CEO. It's horrific. There is absolutely ZERO privacy, and it's often so loud it's virtually impossible to get any serious or significant work done. It's ridiculous - and every single employee that you talk to at headquarters HATES it. In this aspect, the working conditions are a TOTAL JOKE.

    Pros

    They have a generous benefits package

    Cons

    Upper 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 Management

    Listen 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.

    Pros

    The salary is very good and the free .edu's for continuing education, the benefits package also. Standard 401K,( could be better) Wellness program and other discounts that come along with the company are good.

    Cons

    The majority of the nurses I work with wish they could work someplace else. Now what does
    that tell you ? I wish I could say it was better, I truely do, but working conditions seem to be going from bad to worse. It's skeleton staffing all the way, working 12 hour shifts with no lunch and staying over to chart . From the begining of their acquisition of the hospital the management has instituted and adversarial , domineering mode of operation. Stringent in requirements and control and unforgivingly severe in discipline

    Advice to Management

    Try treating your employees like human beings. Be fair and honest. Make them feel valued and not like you are trying to find ways to fire them. Increase you nurse to patient ratios to meet other hospitals in the area. Remember that kindness trickles down

    Pros

    Great co-workers, they are supportive.

    Cons

    Now this may be territorial but at our facility...non-competitive pay (we are 20% below national average), always short staffed, staffing matrix doesn't budge despite growing demands of census, uninvolved manager to really fix staffing issues. They totally rely on everyone to pull OT to cover shortages...all the time....gets old. Not enough support staff to delegate tasks to so nurses are doing everything! Equipment is out dated, broken, or can't be found. I have been a nurse for 14 years, worst hospital system I have worked for.

    Pros

    pretty good hourly pay, opportunity to move around, change positions, try to find a better manager before that one goes away.

    Cons

    Disciplinary and dictator like attitude among managers seems to be preferred. Actual problem solving and critical analysis of problems are secondary to employees doing what they are told. Expect to be responsible for unrealistic demands, be ready to defend yourself, and explain that you have no control over something that should be obvious. Finger pointing is abundant.

    Advice to Management

    Respect (listen to) your front line staff nurses. Think. Stop blaming the staff nurse for neg outcomes within the environment you have created and chosen.
