    Demanding, but believe that my hard work is making a difference

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPaid Time Off has never been an issue for me. I have 25 days a year and can generally use them when I want. In addition I get 11 or more paid holidays off and perhaps one of the best perks is that the corporate office is closed during the week between Christmas and New Year's. My work-life balance has changed somewhat since the Vanguard Health Systems acquisition in the fall of 2013.

    ConsI still have a lot of flexibility in terms of work hours and telecommuting. Sometimes it feels like I work in more of a matrix organizational structure, which means getting pulled in several competing directions. This provides exposure to different areas of the business (=PRO), but can mean that managing projects and expectations can be difficult (=CON). There also tends to be a lack of communication and positive feedback. This tends to mean that decisions by management and steering committees often do not happen or when they do, they tend to result in rework.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure to clearly communicate goals and expectations. Provide positive feedback to inspire your employees. And lastly, retain talent by talking to them and learning about their strengths and what makes them passionate about what they do. It's amazing what listening and a little feedback can do to energize your staff.

    Strong but static

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsTenet is a capable organization with many strong individuals in key positions. Additionally, there is a high level of job stability available for those who are seeking lifetime or long term employment. Job roles are highly defined for those who seek a high level of structure in their job role.

    ConsSuffers from traditional large company issues. Multiple overlapping departments that work in silos with the this is someone else's job mentality.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReorganize to align with operational requirements rather than functional needs to interject operational knowledge into process. Reduce resourcing redundancy and increase individual responsibility levels within the organization to promote ownership and improved results.

    OK experience

    Finance Manager (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsWork life balance is not too bad

    ConsWork is repetitive and sometimes meaningless and impact-less, just to follow your boss's order. Systems need some upgrade. Office politics. Lack of training, some management views training as waste of productive hours.

    Alright

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsIt was a paycheck and the hours were consistent. 8am-4:30pm

    ConsUnknown future, no one wants to share responsibilities perhaps in fear of being laid-off. You're not paid for holidays unless you're management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTell employees what is happening around the hospital instead of letting it spread by "rumors" (always true)

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

    Office Coordinator (Current Employee)

    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.
