    Pros

    Opportunities to work in the clinical setting, great friendly employees in several departments I have worked with, flexible, collaboration

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not to be distant to departments outside of the main hospital, being on the back burner interferes with work productivity

    Pros

    Great benefits. There is some room for advancement. Seems to be better now with the new COO

    Cons

    If you work an administrative job, you are REQUIRED to take off holidays, BUT you have to use your own PTO to fulfill your 80 hours. It doesn't matter if you don't want to use your PTO or if you want to work, say Labor Day. It's not an option.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Nice people to work with. Good team environment.

    Cons

    When looking for other positions internally (promotions, position change), existing employees are not given preferential treatment. Must compete with everyone that applies externally.

    I worked at Sutter Health full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Hours range from 7 to 3:30 to 10 to 6:30 M-F. Staff work in teams that are encouraged to solve problems together. Upper Management recognizes milestones and have held breakfasts, BBQ's, ice cream socials. Great Benefits.

    Cons

    Some team management lead from their chair. Often staff is left to ask a fellow co-worker to solve the problem. Unless you are a favorite, it is not likely you will be chosen for a special project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer special projects to all staff, this will allow all staff the chance to learn and participate in something new. Having favorites only creates problems.

    I worked at Sutter Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They provide a structured training process, reasonable pay, and benefits.

    Cons

    It's hard to network within the company to obtain cross training and building multiple skills. Managers seem to have a lot of social politics that interfere with the employees advancement opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about the employees and their hard work and dedication, instead of who Manages them and the issues you have with that Manager.
