    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working for Tenet has been a bit of a roller coaster ride given the changes in healthcare in recent years.

    Cons

    Working for a for-profit company presents many challenges with adequate resources for effective operation. Have seen 5 CEOs come and go.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees. They are the best asset you have! This is our community and the patients we serve are important! We need more resources to offer the quality of service they deserve.

    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The marketing department leadership is very focused on minimizing politics, maximizing collaboration, encouraging transparency and fostering innovation. The department is full of smart, experienced, friendly, and very dedicated teammates who naturally work hard together to achieve goals. I'm respected as a person and given the benefit of the doubt, so I feel comfortable stepping up to try to add value where I can. I love my teammates and feeling like I'm making a difference. The Tenet perks are also great. I keep learning about more of them on a regular basis. And the newly remodeled floors are very bright and beautiful, with great views. It's a great place to go to work every day.

    Cons

    This is not the place for someone who wants to skate by doing the minimum, or create cliques. Even extremely talented and experienced leaders are rolling up their sleeves to dig in to accomplish our ambitious goals. The location is beautiful but downtown itself is a little inconvenient (although right on 75, 35 and the Tollway) especially for so many of us who have kids in schools up north. However, you can have flexible hours when needed and they provide perks at the location like a free shuttle to anywhere downtown, free parking of course, and a new conference center to bring in caterers for lunchtime. I heard they will also have a doctor on site (like a small urgent care clinic). You can also get to cafes and food courts through the building.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize The Bus Dev/Marketing leadership for creating the collaborative and productive team environment we all love. More teams should be run like this. Great job!!

    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Fair pay for this area, 401K, some cheap benefit options, easy to advance and gain raises, offers continuing education

    Cons

    Management is filled with terrible bullies who work nurses to the breaking point. Nurses are constantly worked in unsafe conditions with high and illegal patient ratios and management refuses and is unqualified to help. Breaks and lunches are scarce during a 12 hour shift. Management retaliates and bullies any nurse attempting to speak up about these unsafe conditions. It is a culture of fear and intimidation, which is not good for nurses or patients. I would never allow anyone I care about to be a patient here.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of management and hire new managers who actually care about employee morale and patient safety.

    Pros

    Unionized Hospital and pay is very good for Registered NurseStaff. The hospital that I work at is a busy trauma center so its good learning environment the work is varied and interesting. Recently invested in a lift team due to California Law not because they wanted to.

    Cons

    You work in terrible conditions for the pay. The exceptions are set way too high and given the scarcity of resources. Limited supplies, old equipment that doesn't function properly. On a daily basis including taking care of critically ill and unstable patients you have do all menial clerical tasks, no nursing assistants, no Physical Therapy. The hospital is also very dirty. This includes but is not limited to answering telephones, printing progress notes, answering the door, counseling family members, and generally the lack of resources leads to an unsafe working environment for the staff and patients. I have been in nursing 5 years and I received my first injury at this hospital and have been assaulted by patients on numerous occasions with management discouraging its reporting or seeking treatment.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on providing patient centered care first. The focus on lean management and profits is over the top and not good for our patients, their families, community, and employees. The results of this type of Profit centered healthcare are evident. Patient falls, central line infections, and a staggering amount of bed sores. I wouldn't take a love one here or receive treatment here myself it is frightening the care that is given at this health facility why do you think the State of California is here constantly investigating the care. Stop trying to squeeze every penny and get away with being barely legal and get up to standards and just do what is right for our patients.

    Pros

    Good working environment, decent pay structure

    Cons

    Always cost-cutting at the expense of employees

    Advice to Management

    If you are concerned with employee turnover you should implement employee friendly policies. Having a food truck a couple of times a year does not make up for not getting a raise because you were sick 5 times in a 12 month period.

    Pros

    Room to grow, many opportunities to advance. Large company with good benefits.

    Cons

    Depending on your career goals, moving up can take time, but it is available to those that make it known that is their ultimate goal.
