    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a large company with a professional environment. Some departments are better run than others.. A young consultant can learn a lot from working in this environment. Folks are usually friendly, but eventually some employees can become vindictive due to lack of direction.

    Cons

    Overall, this is lack of clear vision for how the company is to move forward. There are entire departments that exist because either they support an archaic software to support a process "that has always been done this way" but is decades behind the industry, or other departments have no "leaders" who do not lead but kind of live on their own island of thoughts that result in favoritism and inventing unfruitful work for the sake of staying busy.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your VPs actually run their own departments because in many cases, some senior leaders are busy in their own little worlds not actually caring for what is happening beneath them resulting in wasteful budgets, to say the least. Take direction from above. If lower management thinks its being innovative then make sure that department is not bloating due to a vacuum in your leadership direction.

    Pros

    Team support amongst other managers. Trainings are frequent although it takes you away from your already overloaded schedule so then you get further behind.

    Cons

    Complete confusion on who you report to and listen to. Physicians think they are the boss but they are actually employees! The market ops managers won't get in the middle of it and set the physicians straight so chaos ensues! So overloaded with duties that most of the PM's have to work from home almost every night and weekend. Training available but typically done by other practice managers and not corporate trainers, which creates inconsistency in procedures. Deadlines are unreasonable due to task volume.

    Advice to Management

    Set your physicians straight that when they sign the dotted line, they give up their practice. They must abide by Tenet rules now. Take some duties off the PM's and you may see practice growth and happy patients as they would get the attention they deserve and the answers they need.

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

    Pros

    Large organization with locations around the country. Offer the latest technology to draw great employed doctors. Benefits and pay is very competitive.

    Cons

    As managers, Tenet has blurred lines in its organizational charts to help understand who is truly the decision maker (administration or high priced employed physician) - these "blurred lines" remove the focus on its patients from thier mission and purpose in the community
    Individual Hospitals work in silos from each other in regional markets, many local hospitals fight for the same market share by providing same high dollar specialtis rather than pooling this strengths and reducing costs

    Advice to Management

    Tenet is known for advancing it's own management into executive positions, especially if ones are from Tenet Leadership Academy, which is great. But, if Tenet wants to break the cycle of barely hitting the shareholder's expectations, you should allow more outside hires to help challenge the culture and chanel Tenet's Reputation.

    Pros

    Large organization with many resources and many talented people

    Cons

    No clear, shared vision across company. Silos across corporate. Completely driven by stock price, compliance and standardization, with poor results.

    Advice to Management

    Culture change imperative. Articulate a vision and key strategies that must then be reflected department by department and unit by unit in their plans and activities

    Pros

    Excellent rapport with physicians and case management make things easier to get through the system. Physicians are open to educational opportunities.

    Cons

    Older system and conservative administration makes it hard to think outside the box to make needed changes to outdated and worn out policies.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to new ideas and create a culture that celebrates employees.

    I worked at Tenet Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Pay is ok , benefits are way to high .

    Cons

    Sadly Tenet is money driving they don't pay their employees overtime but still have them working after they clock out. They don't care much about patient care once again all money.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the employees what you owe them, care more for the patient and employees. Don't stretch an employee to their limit. Many great people have left the company because of so much work overload that you put on them. Never do they praise or do evaluation. It came embarrassing to me to work for a company like that.

    I worked at Tenet Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many great employees working hard to make a positive impact in healthcare.

    Cons

    Senior Management talks about providing excellent care but it is obvious that the true goal is to satisfy investors. Lack of investment for new/working equipment in hospitals, staffing in hospitals is not appropriate to handle census, etc. Nurses and techs worked to the bone with little to no incentive. Decisions made at the "home office" don't take into consideration the impact on patients and staff. Home Office is out of touch with what is really happening in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are your greatest asset. Investment in your employees and hospitals will improve outcomes and result in patients returning. Returning patients equals increased revenue (Business 101).

    Good people in the field

    Cons

    Management is made up of MBA and chronies in upper leadership

    Advice to Management

    Remember that patients come to you company for hep, and staff comes to work. Both pay your salaries.
