    I worked at Tenet Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, excellent CNO and CEO vision, robust sign-on bonuses. Then you start working there and discover...

    Cons

    Benefits that are subpar and barely cover the basics let alone anything significant ESPECIALLY the "comprehensive" dental plan, Top-Down authoritative managers that do not listen to team members and use their positional authority to attain compliance via fear and bullying rather than engagement, Department Directors that do not know how to operationalize the vision of the C-Suite.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the way of your people. Bullying them into "compliance" is driving your A players away and leaving the apathetic behind. Lead through empowerment and LISTEN to your teams. Use that feedback to build something truly special rather than keeping the blinders on and alienating the amazing people you have working for you.

    I worked at Tenet Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Above average salaries for senior level people. More annual holidays than most companies offer these days.

    Cons

    Horrible downtown location with crappy parking for people who have less than 15 years of experience or who aren't senior leaders. The parking garage is dangerous and my friends have had their cars vandalized. Not safe. Crappy 401k match. Non-existent stock program and options because the senior leaders have mismanaged things so badly that the stock isn't worth jack. Arrogant, self-serving, egotistical, unethical leaders (mostly those closest to the now-departing CEO) who get away with childish, unprofessional, spoiled behavior while the employees suffer for it. No room for advancement unless you are in the small "chosen circle" of people liked by senior leaders. HR leaders brag about owning culture. They should be instead hiding the fact that they are responsible for the most pitiful lack of positive culture. People operate from fear and a desire to backstab to protect themselves. HR will respond to this review saying, "Call so-and-so to further discuss your concerns." The person they list to call is part of the same long-term problem, as are many people in HR.. People are sometimes hired on looks instead of capabilities. There is ageism throughout the company. They just slashed regional management, a market CEO and have laid off people, all because the company was bloated and spending money on the wrong things. Very poor leadership, which is now coming home to roost. Public Affairs leadership is the opposite of what it should be - also arrogant, spoiled, tyrannical, tactical, practices favortism. Wouldn't know good public affairs practice if it hit them in the mouth. Public Affairs leadership should be wiped clean along with the other leaders who are going away soon or have already been terminated. The company is being stripped down to get rid of the debt caused by poor management, and being prepared to be sold to hopefully a better company. I feel sorry for people who work there now. There are good people who will suffer because of what senior leaders have brought about. And yet, departing leaders will have the most ridiculously large severance packages, while other rank and file employees can barely get by - and they're the ones caring for patients each day. Something is fishy with this outcome!

    Advice to Management

    Your failure to lead, and your arrogance and poor employee treatment, has brought you to where you are now. Maybe you'll learn from this miserable time and be better wherever you land next - that is - if you don't retire from all that insane severance pay you're receiving. Consider treating employees like the mature, intelligent people they are. Stop practicing obvious ageism. All people have value in the company. Not just the young 20-somethings that you find attractive. Learn to trust and let other people lead in areas where they are good. Stop micromanaging because...how has that worked out for you so far? Potential employees - get the heck away from this company and go elsewhere. Do your research online and see how bad this company and its leaders have been. It's just starting - get out now, or don't ever go to Tenet in the first place. There are far better places in DFW with real cultures, real good leaders and real careers. Stay away from Tenet.

    I worked at Tenet Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Higher than average salary; a few good folks in C-suite leadership

    Cons

    Typical old-school corporate environment. No employee development program. Training and talent program is lackluster and embarrassing, which, in turn, promotes an environment of unapologetic back-stabbing and infighting among employees and leadership. Really, really surreal to watch directors stab VPs stab other VPs and SVPs. I thought management books just made up these scenarios for teaching purposes. Nope! At Tenet it's live action corporate toxicity 24/7. There was even an entire team of VPs and directors, none of whom received merit promotions -- and most employees on the floor knew these "leaders" were promoted only because they threatened to leave. To top if off, Tenet's use of technological solutions is almost non-existent, primarily because the CEO gave away huge contracts to his old college buddies whose companies are shamefully behind the times and overpriced. Pretty incredible to watch a $10 billion healthcare company being effortlessly set up for failure by boys in business suits.

    Advice to Management

    Too many barriers in leadership to overcome at this point. Sell the company and try again another day.
