    Pros

    It is an academic environment and conducive for learning. There is a great group of nurses and other staff to help out during the initial phases of training.

    Cons

    I feel like that due the enormous size of it, the personal factor is sometimes lost and/or forgotten.

    Advice to Management

    Stay involved so everyone gets the personal feeling with employer. More team building activities than do already occur currently; will also benefit.

    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Gain lots of experience with the pathology and the volume that you will experience during your training. The attending physicians that make up the sub-specialties love to teach.

    Cons

    Hospital administration does not take residency/fellowship programs seriously many times. When residents and fellows are fine training at Palmetto General Hospital the physicians want to practice at other hospitals.

    Advice to Management

    The fellows and the residents are the biggest assets in Palmetto General Hospital and any other hospitals that gave training programs. Take the residents and fellows more seriously so they do not leave the company when they have completed their training.

    Pros

    Local management is outstanding and makes a big difference working for a large company. Human resources is the one department that is not local that has always been very dependable

    Cons

    Tenet is not a local company in Atlanta and hiring process was very difficult. Expectations of both staff and local management are not realistic. Have heard complaints about company from different staff.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate all employees not just corporate positions that create task to be carried out by other employees. Dont make employees use PTO for holidays and bad weather that require office to be closed

    Pros

    Excellent company for a small hospital facility to implement revenue cycle management and improve cash flow. Excellent opportunity for company advancement and learning basic PAS skills. *Conifer Health Solution / University Health Shreveport basically was not a good match. Conifer Health Solution way too advanced and University Health Shreveport too large of a facility and in prehistoric baseline processes.

    Cons

    Lack of HR management and staff turn over. Lack of training assistance to onsite managers to improve revenue management and basic skills. Absolutely a waste of Louisiana Tax Payers monies and a waste of time with no minimum improvement in baseline processes.

    Advice to Management

    Properly train onsite management and apply hands on to support staff by providing the tools needed for process improvements. University Health Shreveport have lost way too many tenured and experienced employees due to the lack of training and fairness of onsite management. The cost outweigh to properly train and retain workers instead of fire employees for a point system that is not fair across the board.
