    Pros

    The people are friendly but many are over worked. Including those in lower management and Physicians. Also nurses and ancillary staff are forced to work with outdated equipments and subject to management practice of the 1920s

    Cons

    Small selection of Dr. To choose from with health benefit, unsuportive HR department.

    Advice to Management

    Please increase the shift differential and please have a open door policy for staff to talk to HR, management or anyone in position to make changes. Stop with the crisis management and start crisis prevention. Listen more to staff and make the necessary changes to be an innovative Healthcare provider.

    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 part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Union pay scale and free health insurance, premium pay for working on your day off, in California there are safe staffing regulations

    Cons

    Don't care about following safe staffing, management makes all decisions without input from staff
    no opportunities to move to day shift or receive education that is relevant to job

    Advice to Management

    have nurses make nursing decisions, not non nursing executives. Follow through on promises and when you ask for staff input, really listen to it

    Pros

    Large company that is very innovative. Plenty of chances for advancement if you are motivated. Good about recognizing employees for their contributions. Encourage employee participation with company events. Very good benefits.

    Cons

    The companies size and constant changes make it difficult at times to be sure of who handles what. Other than that I have no personal cons.

    Advice to Management

    I have no problems with my managers. I think management here is very open to discussion.

    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

    Satisfied with current pay rate and PTO accrual rate. Easy going atmosphere most of the time.

    Cons

    My main issue is their lack of providing a continuing education allowance/reimbursement for those employees who are required by the state to earn CEUs in order to maintain their licensure. Namely, any member of the physical rehabilitation department - physical, occupational and speech therapists who all have advanced degrees. The hospital I work at has been part of Tenet for approximately 2 yrs and they did not provide the reimbursement before becoming Tenet. It is difficult to know if other tenet hospitals actually do provide this benefit, but we have been told we are not going to receive this benefit in the distant future.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to middle management - show you value your employees.

    Pros

    Decent Pay until you figure out that outside employees get paid more for roles that inside employees were promoted to.

    Cons

    Management, Management, Management. There is either none or too much. When there is too much it is for the wrong reasons.

    Pros

    Excellence in employed physicians. They have fortunately hired some of the best in Florida. This kept me motivated in continuing to manage over 30 physician practices in 8 years.

    Cons

    Poor administrative decisions. Nothing is as important as "making budget" and moving friends up the corporate latter. Decisions are not based on what is best for the organization or its employees. Managers are never recognized or appreciated for all that they do, yet are held accountable for bottom lines, though they have little under their control. It is expected that they have no personal and work life balance. Hard work, loyalty and dedication are overlooked. HR provides no support. Turn over is extremely high in the physician practice setting, from support staff, office managers, practice administrators, directors, HR, finance (in actuality in every position). Positions have been eliminated but the same role and expectations exist for a lower paying title.

    Advice to Management

    Support you managers. Pay them their worth. Show appreciation for all they have done for the organization. Maybe then you can retain employees whose work ethics represent the valued physicians you employ.
