    Pros

    its come a LONG time way since I started working here many years ago but has a ways to go still. Recently we were fortunate enough to finally have a very decent amount of funding for our hospital to updat so many pieces of antiquated equipment and monitoring systems in almost every department. So very necessary in light of the many changes in healthcare today.

    Cons

    Compensation is low for this area. Huge deal made about discussing salary with anyone else (dismissable offense) not really sure that's legal! Under new leadership very recently, hoping this will somehow change attitudes. Hospital really doesn't follow its own rules, (Policy and procedures) except when the JCAHO inspections come up then everyone tries to remember the correct rules not the ones that were being followed since last inspection.

    Advice to Management

    If you leave employment with Tenet Health work somewhere else for a bit and then negotiate your return you could end up making more than your manager! If you stay employed with Tenet for a long time your increases are smaller than cost of living rise. New graduates can come in at barely just lower than you are paid having been there for a decade or longer. Really can't understand why management can't see this. What is the incentive to really want to work to your best capacity? Leadership? It's just not there. People get promoted, not because they deserve it but because they have been there the next longest and therefore get it. They are not trained for the respective managerial, lead nurse, head tech job but have to figure it out. Many don't stay long. What's the point?

    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work with some wonderful, talented and very hard-working colleagues. In addition, salaries at Tenet tend to be very competitive for both the market, industry and skill level. They do reward their employees financially - and for that I am grateful. I also believe that, overall, from a financial standpoint, Tenet is a very well-run company. I also believe that Trevor Fetter, the CEO, is incredibly smart and is probably one of the most skilled CEOs I've ever seen. That deserves to be said.

    Cons

    Many departments at headquarters (which Tenet calls "the Home Office") are poorly managed. Leaders can be incredibly difficult to work with, changing their minds at whim and expecting you to work sometimes ridiculous hours (and often do the job of more then one person - literally!). There's no such thing as work-life balance for many leaders at Tenet. Instead, they refer to "work-life integration." Finally, at headquarters, every single employee is forced to work in a cubicle - including the CEO. It's horrific. There is absolutely ZERO privacy, and it's often so loud it's virtually impossible to get any serious or significant work done. It's ridiculous - and every single employee that you talk to at headquarters HATES it. In this aspect, the working conditions are a TOTAL JOKE.

    Pros

    Tenet has some nice benefits package.

    Cons

    They give a difficult time for taking time off work. And some of the policy is ridiculous. They expect you to be "100% perfect.

    There seemed to have been many management changes that frustrated long term employees.

    Pros

    I have learned a ton from my industry, have great mentors to learn from, and they care about your overall career path and learning as much as you can. Great pay.

    Cons

    Little to no work-life balance, long hours, everyone is so busy that sometimes there is no one to turn to for help, very stressful environment.

    Advice to Management

    Make more time to give employees a break and make work fun and not just always go, go, go. Staff certain departments with more employees - you have the money!

    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The location is great, my unit has flexible hours and scheduling. many people have gone on to higher positions within the company. They help contribute to tuition costs.

    Cons

    Management is always fixing things late: parking, equipment, and staffing. Administration would rather redecorate for a quick sale then to put in any better raises.

    Advice to Management

    Have some type of humbleness and humility.

    Pros

    work-life balance is subjective, depending on who you speak with. The culture is to work with what you have

    Cons

    Signing up for benefits is deplorable. They DO NOT have a good system in place at all. Then they have the nerve to have terrible health benefits. Also....it would

    Pros

    Good pay, urban work environment

    Cons

    inefficient leadership, poor benefits package, old school office culture, little opportunity for career development

    Advice to Management

    CEOs and senior leaders are not the only ones that you should look to develop. Without strong leadership at every level, the company will stay stagnant.

    The people here are great to work with.

    Cons

    Staffing is limited, often leaving clinical staff feeling overwhelmed. Too much pressure from senior management on being profitable.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing so much on productivity and provide adequate staffing in clinical areas.
