    Pros

    In my area you learn about the state laws on the right to work laws. I have learned to do much with little.

    Cons

    lack of respect for patients needs and concern for staff. They are for profit, and this is evident in the way they treat their staff,I do not know about every Tenet facility, but we have seen them take a wonderful community hospital, and ruin it for their own profit and greed. They do not practice what they are forced to preach such as ETHICS. come to Frye Regional in Hickory nc and just sit back and wzatch how ethical they are. They lack MORALES, Staff concern, and most of all they reaaly do not value patients, only the $$$ that they represent, as evident of massive benefit and staff cuts, such as OR cleaners, Nurse's with terrible patient ratios. The staff is finally defeated with a get what you pay for attitude, which was developed over many years.

    Advice to Management

    Please wake up and see that you are going about this all wrong, you are like the Emperors new clothes, you look good on the out side, but YOU ARE NEKKID!

    Pros

    Small hospital with feel of a family atmosphere among employees. Caring and skilled physicians.

    Cons

    Upper management is horrible. Money hungry, greedy management who lacks any concern for patient care. Not a place to work if you are a patient advocate.

    Advice to Management

    My advice for Doctor's Hospital at White Rock Lake in Dallas would be to get organized, treat your patients, physicians, and staff with respect. There seems to be a total lack of respect for staff at this hospital. We are deceived, manupilated, taken advantage of, poorly staffed and did I mention deceived? Many of your long time employees feel they are being forced to look elsewhere for jobs by an administration team that just does not care that they are losing dedicated and loyal employees. I have worked at this hospital for 16 years and have always said this place is my heart. Not anymore...my heart has been ripped from my chest one to many times by poor management in the last 5 years.

    Pros

    Great benefits is all this company has to offer

    Cons

    under staffed,private office practice. poor management, unfair working environment, your opinion does not matter! It's not what you know but who you know...

    Advice to Management

    Get qualified managers with a degree in health administration. Evaluate the survey's that the employee's fill out!!! Maybe send a floater to observe the managers from corporate. Like they do on the show under cover bosses. "You will be shocked"

    I worked at Tenet Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    They finally went to computerized charting, only because the government made them.

    Cons

    Greedy, they don't care about patients,, constantly understaffed,the nurses get in trouble for not answering the phone on time,passing out meds to the patients and answering the call light all this at the same time. Nurses are blamed for patients sending In bad reviews. 6-7 patients to one nurse, no care partner, phlebotomy barely comes to work and nurses have to do their job, management is clueless, mean, nasty, not fair and some racism allegations have been noted.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company, treat your workers right and with respect and if you can't then QUIT

    I worked at Tenet Healthcare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I now work for a company that appreciates their employees and treats them like professionals.

    Cons

    Was WRONGFULLY TERMINATED from a job I had with this company for 17 years. No warning, no HR intervention..nothing. I had no whatsoever "write up's" on my record. I was terminated by an agency "hit" CNO who had been there less than a month. Amazingly enough after all was said and done, after I had lost my job, the other people involved were either let go or given the option to "retire" or be terminated. Fascinating and completely unprofessional. And after almost 3 years I am still amazed. The person brought in to do this was THE MOST bitter and hateful person I had ever seen! Unbelievable but true.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue.
