    Pros

    Tenet is a wonderful place to work. Their PRM program taught me so much about what drives the hospital and the decision makers. Upper management, specifically the CEO and Regional Directors were incredible and great coaches. They truly cared about the employee and the success of their employees.

    Cons

    Initial training could have been more in depth to really get the employee set up for success from the start.

    Pros

    Awesome management team and many opportunities for growth. I enjoyed being on the training team and loved traveling to the sites I was responsible for. The management team was very supportive and I always felt like they had my back when issues arose.

    Cons

    I really can't think of any. I only left the company because I relocated and there were no opened positions in the city I was moving to.

    Pros

    Everyone is really "nice" and helpful. Small group that enjoy each other's personal stories.

    Cons

    To survive everyone brown noses up to the charge nurse. If your values are greater than backstabbing and psychological intimidation than They will shun you from the group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Passive aggressive intimidation to avoid employees will only work for so long. Hormonely imbalanced confrontations by those in charge is not leadership. Good Samaritan in West Palm Beach will continue to lose emplyees as well as doctors because their management is not leadership based. The operating room culture is nothing less than a Salem Witches trial.

    Pros

    The only thing good I have to say is that I enjoy helping people in need of a smile.

    Cons

    Where should I start? Poor working conditions do to a deteriorating facility that only gets band aids on a gaping wound. Department directors cutting employee hours do to "flexing" in order to get a bonus (we employees are not blind), when you "flex" employees, you compromise patient care (maybe that's why tenet shelled out close to 900 million dollars in 2013 to lawsuits). A CEO making over 23 million dollars in 2013, yet we can't hire the extra help we need. It's mind boggling that this company is still a float. But what do I know, I'm just the little worker ant making sure the "Queen" gets his/her bonus on the expense of my back. I'm trying my hardest to find another job and say I was able to jump ship before it sank.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All the schooling in the world will never teach you common sense.

    Pros

    Boss was felxable with my schedual

    Cons

    Tenet has had trouble in the past financialy, but seems to have made a turn around and has been doing well ever since. Be prepared to flex staff a lot, but this is true of most places, when things are slow they send you home. This can be hard especialy if it happens a lot.

    Pros

    They offer a full benefits package - health, dental, vision, 401K. They don't expect any nights or weekend hours, overtime is limited.

    Cons

    Tenet knows how to run hospitals, but has been running the physician practices by trial and error. The success of the acquisition really comes down to the physicians and the manager since the corporate structure does not set up the practice for success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick one initiative at a time. Focus on one or two areas of improvement and wait for things to improve before piling on more. It's a lot harder to do twenty things well versus two. Have consistent training so that the different offices still have some commonalities but understand that different speciality offices require different workflow.

    Pros

    Having a job, being employed

    Cons

    Unbelievable work loads, it us impossible to complete your workload unless you work 20hours a day. I am highly organized, experienced, and a hard worker, yet my management believes I need to work 24hours a day because she does. Unethical. Can't get time off when you need it, as taking time off is frowned upon. Work will be waiting for you when you return.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some time in the trenches, see what is really going on.
