    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working for Tenet had been a good experience so far. Looking forward in growing with this company and learning new skills.

    Cons

    The company should consider paying holidays off so that employees are able to build more PTO for personal time and sick leave. This has not been easy to accept

    Advice to Management

    Social workers should receive more compensation for their work. As professionals their work is overlooked and they are often underpaid. I believe management should consider this greatly

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

    Pros

    The excellent training was extremely helpful along with being practical. Many things I learned will always be remembered and an advantage in other work environments.

    Cons

    I was not given any verbal or written warnings about my time clock issues and was discharged the last day of my probation period.

    Advice to Management

    This was actually Morrison; as I worked in the kitchen cooking. I really liked the job and felt proud working at the hospital.

    Pros

    Tenet Healthcare is a fairly good corporate employer for the following reasons:
    1. Healthcare is a necessity of life, and jobs are almost always available; excesive cut backs have not been a concern for this corporation.
    2. The benefits, while downzied during economic turmoil, are still competitive. These include health insurance, 401K, tuition reimbursement, accidental/life insurance.
    3. Managment tends to relate to employees personal needs (i.e. child care, sick time, personal days), and seem to make accomodations for a work / life balance.
    4. The company values those who seek further education and seem to promote a learning environment.
    5. Because of the incentives for learning and personal growth, Tenet seems to find room for employees to grow and move up after completion of degree programs or certifications.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides of working for Tenet Healthcare include the following:
    1. As seen in many corporations, Tenet has some administrators or managers that have been around for too long. Sadly, these people add nothing more to the departments than nostalgia of times past. In an effort to maintain competiveness in any given industry, a corporation must be willing to identify problems and implement effective policies and procedures to correct the problem. As such, employees may find recurrent "fires" or problems in departments that cannot be put out. This can cause frustration among the staff.
    2. While education is valued and reimbursed by Tenet, do not expect management to advise you of newly opened positions. They will not show an employee the way out if it does not suit their interests.

    Advice to Management

    In light of the afore mentioned issues, I would suggest the following to the administrators of Tenet Healthcare:
    1. Remove or reassign ineffective administrators or managers. Information can be obtained by improving or expanding upon the questions given in the annual employee satisfaction survey, or by hiring a consulting firm. I would highly recommend the latter, as internal sources may be biased, providing unreliable or inaccurate data.
    2. Create a bulliten board designed especially for those who are seeking further education. Post notes and letters on this board (which can be either physical or web-based) informing employees of new positions or helpful hints that can lead them to success within the organization.
