    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The staff are wonderful to work with! From housekeeping to RN, they are the glue. The location is desirable and the parking is free.

    Cons

    The management lacks continuity. Policies and procedures are a "cut and paste" from another facility; administration falsely reports infection rates to be zero, and doesn't seem to care about patients, only the share holder's bottom line. RNs typically have 7-8 high acuity patients and the charge nurse always has an assignment that is just as heavy - so they can't help their fellow nurses out.

    Advice to Management

    Patient care is supposed to be what we are about. Cutting corners to save a few pennies, staffing units unsafely, and ignoring staff concerns will eventually lead to more sentinel events than have already happened.

    Pros

    Can't think of anything. They have hospitals everywhere so if I wanted to relocate hopefully I can go to a tenet facility.

    Cons

    Computer system is awful. They buy systems that are out of date and the the least user friendly that most of us have seen including the IT people that come to train us. Yes we know we have a system that is YEARS old!!

    Advice to Management

    You have you're hands in to many pots and cut corners where you should have the best.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Not much, maybe some few nice staff remained to work on some units.

    Cons

    Where to begin? Poor administration that didn't care much about the staff, making money was their first priority, no transperency regarding important changes, no employee support, minimal education for staff. Horrible culture in some units. Stressful environment to work with some staff members.

    Advice to Management

    Working in healthcare is about compassion, caring, leadership, having the capacity to listen, to want to learn and improuve. If you don't have these qualities maybe it's not the right job for you.

    I worked at Tenet Healthcare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have nothing but positive things to say about Tenet! The environment is very laid back (office is extremely quiet). They are accommodating and very flexible with any personal issues that may come up. Everyone works together very well. It's a great team environment.

    Cons

    Tenet offers great health benefits as long as you utilize a Tenet facility. Unfortunately, there are limited facilities in Dallas, making it a little bit difficult.

    Pros

    Tenet is a great place to work if you are a flexible, dynamic creative thinker that can deal with chaos. There is a lot of autonomy, limitless opportunities to shine and impact positive change.

    Cons

    No real career path. Less than ideal work environment (cubicles with no privacy, very loud, very distracting. Impossible to have a professional conversation unless you are fortunate enough to score one of the very hard to come by conference or huddle rooms.

    Advice to Management

    Slow Down. Do more due diligence, Hire the right people. Give them the tools and environment to do their job and be realistic about what one person can do.
