Positive Experience, Corporate Environment

Manager (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

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

ProsStability, Intelligent People, Work-life balance, positive, stable and growing industry, office downtown, free parking,

ConsInconsistent or outdated systems at HQ, usual corporate issues like red tape, lots of paperwork, action hindered by need for compliance, benefits aren't fantastic. All employees at HQ are in cubes. Very little to no privacy.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake time to speak with "the troops" in order to learn about issues that aren't visible at your level. We've had some new senior executives (on the job for 6-12 months) who appear to be clueless about issues that have been around for years and can affect company performance, profitibality and morale.

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

Registered Medical Assistant

Registered Medical Assistant (Current Employee)
Jupiter, FL

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

ProsGreat benefits is all this company has to offer

Consunder staffed,private office practice. poor management, unfair working environment, your opinion does not matter! It's not what you know but who you know...

Advice to Senior ManagementGet qualified managers with a degree in health administration. Evaluate the survey's that the employee's fill out!!! Maybe send a floater to observe the managers from corporate. Like they do on the show under cover bosses. "You will be shocked"

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

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.

Horrible management!

Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

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

ProsSmall hospital with feel of a family atmosphere among employees. Caring and skilled physicians.

ConsUpper management is horrible. Money hungry, greedy management who lacks any concern for patient care. Not a place to work if you are a patient advocate.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice for Doctor's Hospital at White Rock Lake in Dallas would be to get organized, treat your patients, physicians, and staff with respect. There seems to be a total lack of respect for staff at this hospital. We are deceived, manupilated, taken advantage of, poorly staffed and did I mention deceived? Many of your long time employees feel they are being forced to look elsewhere for jobs by an administration team that just does not care that they are losing dedicated and loyal employees. I have worked at this hospital for 16 years and have always said this place is my heart. Not anymore...my heart has been ripped from my chest one to many times by poor management in the last 5 years.

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