    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 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 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 full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    Pros

    They pay for parking and DART passes. Salaries are good.

    Cons

    The organization culture needs major help within certain departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on having department heads really pay attention to the culture within their business units. One bad apple can make working here hell.
