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.

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

Office Coordinator (Current Employee)

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

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.
