    Pros

    Learned alot about healthcare industrry.

    Cons

    Cutthroat company. Management talks a good game, gives you positive reviews, a raise, then 2 months later, your position is eliminated. Too many cuts in mid level people who actually do the work, then they add s Director or above that does very little other than place additional strain on the people left to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of higher level people who do nothing but occupy an office and a parking spot instead of the people who do the work.

    Pros

    Support from sr. mgmt. staff has been helpful and challenging at the same time. I appreciate all their efforts.
    Great team players from the ground up.

    Cons

    Unknown future if we are in the process of changing owners, with possible changes there will be probable cut backs. Staff always keep this thought in the back of their minds especially with the change in economy and the way medicine is practiced.

    Internal Audit: "Don't Do It"

    Former Employee - Senior Auditor in Dallas, TX
    Former Employee - Senior Auditor in Dallas, TX

    I worked at Tenet Healthcare

    Pros

    1) The Senior Leadership (Fetter, Porter) are brilliant professionals. They have done a very good job turning the company in the right direction over the recent years after a very difficult time for the company. They also are very inspiring leaders who address the entire company regularly.
    2) The IA department travels to all the hospitals. Some of those hospitals aren't in high crime areas.
    3) Outside of the IA department, there are some very intelligent, dedicated, and talented individuals who have been with the company for many years.
    4) Initial compensation is fair. Benefits are also good.

    Cons

    1) The size of the company can make bureaucracy a problem. Each region has a very tall reporting structure, so implementing solutions can be a challenge if there is even one mid-level director who opposes a directive set by senior management.
    2) Management in the IA department is at best, ineffective or aloof; at worst, toxic and spiteful.
    3) While the IA department does travel, the work in the field is extreme in terms of hours per day. Burnout is common and largely ignored as management typically only participates in one or two half-days of work at the hospitals, mostly intended to serve a "police" function.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Company has made tremendous strides since the missteps in the early 2000's. There are a lot of good programs being implemented at the hospital level. However, the IA department, because of the issues listed above, tends to underachieve because so much energy is directed at office politics and infighting and away from professional growth and actual audit work.
