    Pros

    Clear commitment to quality and patient care; employees take pride in their work. Organization treats employees well and provides good compensation and great benefits.

    Hierarchy and "silos" can put a damper on initiative and quick action; however, the organization is taking slow but steady progress in changing that aspect of the culture.

    I have been working at Sutter Health full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Medical benefits and training are about the only good things in current months,

    Cons

    Just about everything else. We are understaffed, over worked and underpaid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember where the money is coming from. Without the physicians and MA staff, no income would be made.. to anyone. Remember to follow through on projects started, and allow for appropriate staff in ALL areas that have direct patient care. Patients notice.

    I worked at Sutter Health as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    They are a fair company and they have a lot to offer. Many opportunities with a variety of experience levels. Get your foot in the oor and you'll have a great career ahead of you.

    Cons

    The hours I wanted to work at Sutter were not available for me to work. I wish they were because I would have jumped at the opportunity to work there as a full time employee.

    I have been working at Sutter Health

    Pros

    Great company to work for, lots of opportunities to move around and gain experience. Management is friendly and wants to keep employees! And the pay/ benefits can't be beat.

    Cons

    It's a really complex system that doesn't make much sense, so getting things done in different regions (if you work in the System Office) is a headache!
