    Pros

    The office culture is that of hard work. You're expected to deliver, but you're also well compensated for your talent. The company values good ethics. Time off is flexible, and most of the work is done remotely. Depending on the team you work for, personal growth is available for you. Promotions are handed out where deserved. There is a merit pay increase each year.

    Cons

    It's a very fast paced environment, and if you perform below a certain level of performance, you're going to be let go. Many folks put in way over 40 hours in order to get the job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    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

    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

    The people here are helpful & we all try to assist each other. The culture among employees is good.

    Cons

    There is not enough staff on the units. The administration howls loud & long about the fact that press-ganys are down. They ignore the obvious reason, not enough people! Just telling nurses & pcas to run faster won't work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try noticing the obvious! less staff equals longer response time to answer call lights! If the patients are not happy (they aren't, trust me!), they will go elsewhere

    I worked at Tenet Healthcare part-time (more than an year)

    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.

    I have been working at Tenet Healthcare part-time (more than 3 years)

    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.
