    I worked at Tenet Healthcare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work life balance is not too bad

    Cons

    Work is repetitive and sometimes meaningless and impact-less, just to follow your boss's order. Systems need some upgrade. Office politics. Lack of training, some management views training as waste of productive hours.

    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Administration listens to employees working in the trenches. Plenty of room to grow professionally if one makes the effort. Immediate management has good relationship with all supervisors and listens when one has concerns then takes action.

    Cons

    Corporate does not seem to provide helpful advice to make our hospital more efficient. Communication amongst all departments is lacking. The computer systems is NOT user or patient friendly. It is hard to do one's job with such a terrible system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Something has to be done about the computer system. It is not efficient for documenting patient information. The company should have researched the company more thoroughly. Unless the computer system improves or is changed, I do not see communication or efficiency getting better.

    I worked at Tenet Healthcare

    Pros

    It was a paycheck and the hours were consistent. 8am-4:30pm

    Cons

    Unknown future, no one wants to share responsibilities perhaps in fear of being laid-off. You're not paid for holidays unless you're management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell employees what is happening around the hospital instead of letting it spread by "rumors" (always true)

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

    Pros

    They have a generous benefits package

    Cons

    Upper 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 ManagementAdvice

    Listen 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.
