    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.

    Pros

    Awesome management team and many opportunities for growth. I enjoyed being on the training team and loved traveling to the sites I was responsible for. The management team was very supportive and I always felt like they had my back when issues arose.

    Cons

    I really can't think of any. I only left the company because I relocated and there were no opened positions in the city I was moving to.

    Pros

    Boss was felxable with my schedual

    Cons

    Tenet has had trouble in the past financialy, but seems to have made a turn around and has been doing well ever since. Be prepared to flex staff a lot, but this is true of most places, when things are slow they send you home. This can be hard especialy if it happens a lot.

    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Forward thinking, recognizes needed changes. Company that will likely be ahead of the curve in the new healthcare environment. Having worked at several other hospitals I will say that they generally have their approach dialed in compared to others.

    Cons

    I can't really think if too many. All hospitals struggle with typical slow moving bureaucracy and creating strong cultures, so I would say that is systemic in the industry.

    Pros

    We were recently acquired and we are still trying to figure out what our place in the company will be. There have not been any major changes to date so I hope they are taking their time to analyze how the new facilities will be of value.

    Cons

    Feeling like we are not fully integrated into the company has been somewhat challenging. I look forward to being fully integrated with the legacy Tenet facilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to keep open lines of communications. Benefits of healthcare companies should continuously improve. Leveraging the company's size to get the best value is very important.

    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.
