    I worked at Tenet Healthcare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly work environment that encourages growth and learning. Unionized!

    Cons

    Often understaffed, has to do with the geographical location and not the company itself (or so it seems). On the upside, plenty of opportunities for overtime if desired.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Tenet Healthcare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Health Insurance, supportive team members, continuing education benefits, challenging work environment, 401k and general perks benefits, flexible hours and flexible work environment

    Cons

    No room for growth, unsupportive upper management, low pay and very low merit raises, no compensation for advanced certifications, no retirement benefits, might have unsafe working situations

    Advice to Management

    All nurses in critical care should be trained in all advanced skills. Units lack necessary education in comparison to other hospitals in the El Paso area. Open heart, Neuro, Impella, Balloon pump, and CRRT should be mandatory skills taught to all staff before working the unit.
