    Pros

    Busy hospital, usually plenty of overtime. Good place to learn.

    Cons

    Busy hospital, get ready to go home tired. Patient nurse ratio, tele can get to 8:1

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do their best to keep up moral, but lack the little things that would make a difference. I.e. A simple gift card to HEB for Christmas used to be given out, now it just a voucher for a food truck and if you don't work that day, o'well.

    Pros

    Hard to find, hopefully things will change before Tenet sells our facility.

    Cons

    Not enough employees to get the work done. High employee turnover due to stress. No training for new employees. Being threatened to be fired if you cannot collect money.
    Employees need to be included in the Review and Revamp. of processes that do not work.

    Dead end job, no room for advancement..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop looking at employees as dollar bills. Stop firing long time employee's who have experience, and hiring those with no experience within the healthcare field..
      Come and work in the department's to see what it is like. Do on site reviews on the Directors to see how they are treating employees.
    Employees should be able to rate management to improve relationships.

    Pros

    Good pay, urban work environment

    Cons

    inefficient leadership, poor benefits package, old school office culture, little opportunity for career development

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEOs and senior leaders are not the only ones that you should look to develop. Without strong leadership at every level, the company will stay stagnant.

    Pros

    No pros for Tenet since they bought our hospital...they've cut employees and make the remaining employees cut hours and expect them to do two jobs on a part-time basis!

    Cons

    Care only about "billable tasks" even if half an employees job in a hospital cannot be billed so patient care is compromised and employees left struggling and stressed to maintain standard of care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit worrying about only your bonuses abd focus on quality of care and employee satisfaction....Tenet is a profit-driven multibillion dollar corporation but healthcare and hospitals should not be only about profits...if this is the way of the future for healthcare, then we are all in trouble!

    Listen to long term employees. Seek their input.

    Pros

    Very few pros, some good employees, climate of the area

    Cons

    The worst administrative team that I have seen in over 20 years in healthcare

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The entire administrative team should be removed.

    I worked at Tenet Healthcare

    Pros

    Some benefits are good like vacation but are being lost every year.

    Cons

    Corporate management only cares about the bottom line and will cut any person or benefit to achieve this. This is not sour grapes this is a corporate structure that robs from the poor to give to the board. The amount of federal investigations they have had will tell the truth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out before you are a statistic.

    Pros

    The people here are helpful & we all try to assist each other. The culture among employees is good.

    Cons

    There is not enough staff on the units. The administration howls loud & long about the fact that press-ganys are down. They ignore the obvious reason, not enough people! Just telling nurses & pcas to run faster won't work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try noticing the obvious! less staff equals longer response time to answer call lights! If the patients are not happy (they aren't, trust me!), they will go elsewhere

    Pros

    The office culture is that of hard work. You're expected to deliver, but you're also well compensated for your talent. The company values good ethics. Time off is flexible, and most of the work is done remotely. Depending on the team you work for, personal growth is available for you. Promotions are handed out where deserved. There is a merit pay increase each year.

    Cons

    It's a very fast paced environment, and if you perform below a certain level of performance, you're going to be let go. Many folks put in way over 40 hours in order to get the job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.
