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

    Pros

    If you are lucky enough to get involved with a great department you will be surrounded by great people and life long friends.

    It is a great location in downtown and a beautiful building.

    Cons

    Zero culture and community

    Senior Leadership does not care about 95% of the employees

    We used to have small events for people to network and mingle.. (ex: hot chocolate and cookie break the first day it got down to 35 degrees or state fair hour with hot dogs and lemonade) that has all been shut down.

    They even took away kcups for the kuireig machine except for the executive level floors.

    Senior Leadership seems to not trust each other. There are always 5 people with their hands in each situation.. all contradicting themselves.

    Zero work life balance. You are expected to be available and working around the clock. I have even been told that I need to be constantly connected and checking emails when I am on vacation.

    They have managers managing people that have no business managing people. There will be 100% complete turn over in departments and leadership will do nothing about the manager.

    Advice to Management

    We all notice what matters to you. You should consider the people who do all of the work more.

    Pros

    Excellent salary in nursing management

    Cons

    No support from A-Team. CNO to CEO have their head in the clouds. Demand more from their nurse leaders than can be accomplished. Not enough resources

    Advice to Management

    Same as above

    Pros

    Not all are rude. Just those that see you as a different person than who they care about.

    Cons

    I work at the DMC. I had the great displeasure to speak with someone in material resource management. She was so rude!!! Why bother giving employees a phone number to call for assistance if you are angry when they call
     She did not know she had not muted the line and was speaking about me in a very derogatory way. She should be fired. Sure I'm not the only person she's done this to.

    Advice to Management

    Quit hiring your rude relatives and friends.

    Pros

    Excellent benefit package & company retirement match;
    Ability to transfer within the company to multiple states if relocation necessary;
    Excellent education contribution package
    Some hospitals more advanced with excellent Physician Leadership than others....

    Cons

    Healthcare is difficult and both for-profit and non-profit systems have pro's and con's so con is sometimes resources to successfully manage responsibilities are lacking possibly due to profit distribution to shareholders or struggling organizations within the system.

    Abrazo is newer acquisition and adoption of large system processes and standardization seems slow, disorganized, disruptive and results in leadership job insecurity... Some hospitals "Good old Boy" culture among physicians slows progress, and cut-throat competition impedes collaboration for excellent patient care.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course, keep your eye on "Patient Outcomes"- the real True North of all health care, and stop throwing one another under the bus. Accept standardization and welcome fresh ideas. We can compete with the Goliath in this area!
