    Pros

    Tenet is a wonderful place to work. Their PRM program taught me so much about what drives the hospital and the decision makers. Upper management, specifically the CEO and Regional Directors were incredible and great coaches. They truly cared about the employee and the success of their employees.

    Cons

    Initial training could have been more in depth to really get the employee set up for success from the start.

    Pros

    Fiscally sound practice model with organized corporate services.

    Cons

    Facility level management is sometimes short sighted in the goals and sustainability. The bigger picture is sometimes over looked for short term gains.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Confidential satisfaction surveys should be done periodically from the corporate level of middle management.

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

    Pros

    Work in a beautiful building in Downtown Dallas. No micro management. Pay is above average. You pick your hours. Free parking in a near by garage or free DART pass for individuals who prefer to ride the train or bus. Company is constantly growing with new acquisitions and new outpatient centers. Job security comes with the workload of a successful company. Most temps are hired directly with the company after a few months.

    Cons

    Hard for younger individuals to obtain a job at Corporate. Things change so much because of the constant growth.

    Pros

    At their Palm Beach Hospital the have excellent management

    Cons

    Sometimes they are short staffed, and the load is a bit heavy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Other managers should follow the footsteps of your Upper management at PBGM center. They are the best I have seen. Really take time to see what is going on around them.

    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent work environment. Hospital and managers support continuing education and growth. Managers treat employees with respect and as equals. Unlike most hospitals, this one doesn't work it's employees to death! Insurance and benefits are reasonably priced and overall pretty good especially for prenatal services.

    Cons

    The patient volume isn't always really high so sometimes we have to "flex" which means we may not work a day or we may only work a half day. For me personally, the salary is high enough that I don't really have to worry too much about it but when there are 2-3 days in a week that I'm leaving after only 3-4 hours it does sometimes make me a little nervous but so far, it has not impacted me in a negative way. Also, the insurance has a deductible which I'm not used to and don't particularly like so I use my spouse's as a secondary. The PTO could be better, its only about 4.93 hours every 2 weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing! Your employees (at least at my location) are very happy!

    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare

    Pros

    I am a member of the maternity department for the Community Hospital of Los Gatos, which was recently recognized for highest patient satisfaction in the Tenet system. rs The maternity department is regularly rated 4-5 stars (of 5 possible). And patients drive from around the bay area and even the central valley to deliver their baby at CHLG. I especially enjoy their active employee appreciation and acknowledgement process and events.

    Cons

    Tenet has had nationwide problems with ethics and reputation, however they are actively working with government regulatory processes to improve their standing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They communicate goals and achievements promoting quality care and community envolvement. They have a proactive ethics program, they model the princibles.
