    I worked at Tenet Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    They finally went to computerized charting, only because the government made them.

    Cons

    Greedy, they don't care about patients,, constantly understaffed,the nurses get in trouble for not answering the phone on time,passing out meds to the patients and answering the call light all this at the same time. Nurses are blamed for patients sending In bad reviews. 6-7 patients to one nurse, no care partner, phlebotomy barely comes to work and nurses have to do their job, management is clueless, mean, nasty, not fair and some racism allegations have been noted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company, treat your workers right and with respect and if you can't then QUIT

    Pros

    Stability, Intelligent People, Work-life balance, positive, stable and growing industry, office downtown, free parking,

    Cons

    Inconsistent or outdated systems at HQ, usual corporate issues like red tape, lots of paperwork, action hindered by need for compliance, benefits aren't fantastic. All employees at HQ are in cubes. Very little to no privacy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make time to speak with "the troops" in order to learn about issues that aren't visible at your level. We've had some new senior executives (on the job for 6-12 months) who appear to be clueless about issues that have been around for years and can affect company performance, profitibality and morale.

    Pros

    Great benefits is all this company has to offer

    Cons

    under staffed,private office practice. poor management, unfair working environment, your opinion does not matter! It's not what you know but who you know...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get qualified managers with a degree in health administration. Evaluate the survey's that the employee's fill out!!! Maybe send a floater to observe the managers from corporate. Like they do on the show under cover bosses. "You will be shocked"

    Pros

    Great co-workers, they are supportive.

    Cons

    Now this may be territorial but at our facility...non-competitive pay (we are 20% below national average), always short staffed, staffing matrix doesn't budge despite growing demands of census, uninvolved manager to really fix staffing issues. They totally rely on everyone to pull OT to cover shortages...all the time....gets old. Not enough support staff to delegate tasks to so nurses are doing everything! Equipment is out dated, broken, or can't be found. I have been a nurse for 14 years, worst hospital system I have worked for.

    Pros

    pretty good hourly pay, opportunity to move around, change positions, try to find a better manager before that one goes away.

    Cons

    Disciplinary and dictator like attitude among managers seems to be preferred. Actual problem solving and critical analysis of problems are secondary to employees doing what they are told. Expect to be responsible for unrealistic demands, be ready to defend yourself, and explain that you have no control over something that should be obvious. Finger pointing is abundant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect (listen to) your front line staff nurses. Think. Stop blaming the staff nurse for neg outcomes within the environment you have created and chosen.

    Pros

    Small hospital with feel of a family atmosphere among employees. Caring and skilled physicians.

    Cons

    Upper management is horrible. Money hungry, greedy management who lacks any concern for patient care. Not a place to work if you are a patient advocate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice for Doctor's Hospital at White Rock Lake in Dallas would be to get organized, treat your patients, physicians, and staff with respect. There seems to be a total lack of respect for staff at this hospital. We are deceived, manupilated, taken advantage of, poorly staffed and did I mention deceived? Many of your long time employees feel they are being forced to look elsewhere for jobs by an administration team that just does not care that they are losing dedicated and loyal employees. I have worked at this hospital for 16 years and have always said this place is my heart. Not anymore...my heart has been ripped from my chest one to many times by poor management in the last 5 years.
