    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Management at local facility is wonderful. Great community atmosphere and patient care.

    Cons

    Corporate micro-manages to an extreme level. Us vs them mentality, and disjointed operating procedures occur frequently, resulting in a lot of wasted time. Many in corporate appear to have little to no facility-level experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency and better communication from corporate to facilities - this is often lacking greatly.

    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    None that I can think of except that the checks did not bounce.

    Cons

    Underhanded and no loyalty to physicians, other employees, or in the communities where their hospitals are located.

    Do NOT care all about the atient, which is all that should matter in healthcare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    confess and repent- maybe more whistle blower lawsuits?

    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.

    Pros

    They do employ some excellent physicians, my experience is positive because I was lucky enough to be placed with a fantastic physician.

    Cons

    Lots of politics and a lot of the practice administrators are either in over their heads with too many offices to manage, or completely incompetent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know all of the roles that your staff is responsible for doing, I shouldn't have to train you on the basics of the position.
