    Pros

    Great company with excellent pay and benefits.
    Dynamic challenging environment.
    There are opportunities for growth with their continuing education benefits and they encourage promotion from within.

    Cons

    Sutter Health is a large company with many regions, locations, and departments. Each of these have their own culture and environment so some areas have outstanding work environments others do not.

    Advice to Management

    The management I experienced was mostly fantastic. They encouraged and modeled excellence, but I would say at times they could be too lenient with poor performers which can cause resentment and frustration from peers. Picking up the slack for others while you are already working twice as hard as them is discouraging.

    Pros

    Sutter treats its employees exceptionally well. I am a 15+ year veteran healthcare worker and I have worked for most of the "biggies" in California (Dignity, Kaiser, etc.) and I have to say that Sutter is the best place I have ever worked. Excellent compensation and salary packages and a very positive work environment where employees are encouraged to have a good life-work balance.

    Cons

    It is sometimes very difficult to get hired at Sutter.

    Pros

    Excellent compensation plan (nuts to bolts). Competitive wages. Innovate and proactive in competetive market.

    Cons

    There are cons every where you go. Whiners, complainers, etc. You just have to avoid them and not get drawn into their negativity. MOST management I have encountered have a passion for what they do and do it well. Not the case for all, but definitely some. Seems like poor leaders aren't corrected... just ignored or moved around.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to front line staff. They know more than their leads often times...
