    Cons

    Understaffed, High Demands, Extreme stress, Lack of appreciation for staff, Administration has taken over the time allotted for patient care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people or consider to put MA's that want salary the option. As this will give MA 1 time to do all the work allowed without OT, and it will save the company money.

    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Tenet is a great place to work if you are a flexible, dynamic creative thinker that can deal with chaos. There is a lot of autonomy, limitless opportunities to shine and impact positive change.

    Cons

    No real career path. Less than ideal work environment (cubicles with no privacy, very loud, very distracting. Impossible to have a professional conversation unless you are fortunate enough to score one of the very hard to come by conference or huddle rooms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow Down. Do more due diligence, Hire the right people. Give them the tools and environment to do their job and be realistic about what one person can do.

    Pros

    I have nothing but positive things to say about Tenet! The environment is very laid back (office is extremely quiet). They are accommodating and very flexible with any personal issues that may come up. Everyone works together very well. It's a great team environment.

    Cons

    Tenet offers great health benefits as long as you utilize a Tenet facility. Unfortunately, there are limited facilities in Dallas, making it a little bit difficult.

    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare

    Pros

    its come a LONG time way since I started working here many years ago but has a ways to go still. Recently we were fortunate enough to finally have a very decent amount of funding for our hospital to updat so many pieces of antiquated equipment and monitoring systems in almost every department. So very necessary in light of the many changes in healthcare today.

    Cons

    Compensation is low for this area. Huge deal made about discussing salary with anyone else (dismissable offense) not really sure that's legal! Under new leadership very recently, hoping this will somehow change attitudes. Hospital really doesn't follow its own rules, (Policy and procedures) except when the JCAHO inspections come up then everyone tries to remember the correct rules not the ones that were being followed since last inspection.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you leave employment with Tenet Health work somewhere else for a bit and then negotiate your return you could end up making more than your manager! If you stay employed with Tenet for a long time your increases are smaller than cost of living rise. New graduates can come in at barely just lower than you are paid having been there for a decade or longer. Really can't understand why management can't see this. What is the incentive to really want to work to your best capacity?
    Leadership? It's just not there. People get promoted, not because they deserve it but because they have been there the next longest and therefore get it. They are not trained for the respective managerial, lead nurse, head tech job but have to figure it out. Many don't stay long. What's the point?

    Pros

    Tenet has some nice benefits package.

    Cons

    They give a difficult time for taking time off work. And some of the policy is ridiculous. They expect you to be "100% perfect.

    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare

    Pros

    I have learned a ton from my industry, have great mentors to learn from, and they care about your overall career path and learning as much as you can. Great pay.

    Cons

    Little to no work-life balance, long hours, everyone is so busy that sometimes there is no one to turn to for help, very stressful environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more time to give employees a break and make work fun and not just always go, go, go. Staff certain departments with more employees - you have the money!

    Pros

    The location is great, my unit has flexible hours and scheduling. many people have gone on to higher positions within the company. They help contribute to tuition costs.

    Cons

    Management is always fixing things late: parking, equipment, and staffing. Administration would rather redecorate for a quick sale then to put in any better raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some type of humbleness and humility.
