    Pushing forward in challenging times

    Physician (Former Employee)

    ProsDiverse and interesting patients, wonderful region to live in, high quality of care, great medical staffs, nice facilities. Region as a whole may have a promising economic outlook although the benefits of the tech industry are less important in the East Bay. The Sutter health system is well managed and has deep pockets. Proximity to major training facilities such as UCSF and Stanford create influx of talent.

    ConsConstant pressure on costs and falling reimbursement through a payer mix with a large percentage of medical/medicaid. The nurses union has historically been at odds with management which has affected morale and led to frequent labor actions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEngage employees, respond to physicians

    Stay away!!

    Supervisor (Former Employee) Oakland, CA

    ProsI have nothing positive to say, it was a terrible experience.

    ConsExtreme insubordination amongst employees. Management does nothing to promote a team environment. I resigned from my job by choice!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet on board with your employees, work to create a desirable work environment rather than power tripping.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Old Guard Never Leaves

    Social Worker (Former Employee) Berkeley, CA

    ProsI worked in three different units and one was superb. Coworkers were helpful and welcoming. I never felt hesitant about asking for support which makes the work environment nice.

    ConsA couple of other units were very unpleasant with lots of backbiting. Many employees are retired but still continue to work, or double-dip. They cherry pick all the shifts and resent any new people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementClean out the old guard. If you retire, go and make room for those who really need jobs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Beware OB Tech positions

    OB Tech (Former Employee) Berkeley, CA

    ProsI don't have 20 positives words for the Labor and Delivery Unit for a formally trained Surgical Technician. If you are concerned about anything you learned run as fast as you can. It is not important here.

    ConsThe OB Tech supervisors have no formal Surgical Technology training therefore they are ignorant of OR basics. Surgical Tech newbies pay attention...your skills will be compromised working in this department. There is no growth here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNothing... they don't care and wouldn't listen

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    LND Nurse

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Berkeley, CA

    ProsAwesome people to work with

    ConsThe company is trying to take away benefits from nurses while upper management is making 3 plus million a year in salaries

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey are the 1% and are very very greedy.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
