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.

ConsGetting funding for new equipment.

Extremely Long delays by corporate IT on getting resolutions to issues on enhancements to existing configuration.

You've got to be tuff to work for Tenet

Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
West Palm Beach, FL

I have been working at Tenet Healthcare part-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe 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.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementTry 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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Nurse

Registered Nurse (Former Employee)
Hickory, NC

I worked at Tenet Healthcare full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThere's no pros. Bad company to work for. Cut throat.

ConsHospitals are nasty, old plumbing so bad that you can smell the sewer in patients rooms!
It's all about money game for upper management. Puts on good act but even the community knows that Tenet ESP. Frye regional medical Center. Hospital is so cheap that they use prego floors that looks like they bought it at Big Lots. Under staffed and under paid. Staff keeps getting cut and management keeps getting bonus from cutting corners.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou're Fired!!!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Registered Nurse

Registered Nurse (Current Employee)

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

ProsGreat co-workers, they are supportive.

ConsNow 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

would leave if I weren't retiring soon

Registered Nurse (Current Employee)

I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time

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

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