    Pros

    One of the best benefits of working for Tenet is getting your hospital charges waived. This can save you a lot of money and this work for everybody that has your benefits (spouse, dependents).

    Cons

    Tenet is always changing. People are always moving around. Some positions can't hold people longer than a few months. There are a lot of people that have gotten too comfortable and don't care about their work. They play the politics and sit in their fat cat jobs. Communication is always slow at Tenet and with the way the company changes constantly, it's no wonder that the stock is low.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management needs to trim the fat and then stop reorganizing every 6-12 months.

    Pros

    On a personal note it gave me opportunities
    Learned how to function with extremely limited financial resources
    Learned to create a team spirit with employees that were asked to cut their hours at least once a year
    Leanred how to deal with change on a daily and hourly basis

    Cons

    Lack of financial resources.
    Management from early 2000's mis managed compancy
    Cutting corners in healthcare delivery and investment in employees
    Hire better quality C suite individuals
    Very frugal when it came to employee satisfaction
    Allowances are made for top management to reward their "pet" employees

    Advice to Management

    Invest in healthcare and most of all invest in your employees
    Invest in the facilities ---- do not wait until something is broken before you replace it
    Your people are your best resources ---- do not just talk about it---- invest in your people by offering training and appropriate compensation in realtionship to the market where they reside

    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.

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

    Pros

    Stability, Intelligent People, Work-life balance, positive, stable and growing industry, office downtown, free parking,

    Cons

    Inconsistent or outdated systems at HQ, usual corporate issues like red tape, lots of paperwork, action hindered by need for compliance, benefits aren't fantastic. All employees at HQ are in cubes. Very little to no privacy.

    Advice to Management

    Make time to speak with "the troops" in order to learn about issues that aren't visible at your level. We've had some new senior executives (on the job for 6-12 months) who appear to be clueless about issues that have been around for years and can affect company performance, profitibality and morale.
