    Pros

    I like what I am hired to do. Decent benefits, but nothing compared to tech companies in SF.

    Cons

    As in Title: Never before have I witnessed such self-important management. Must agree with above poster. Not the least transparent; difficult to consider them "Team

    Too many ESL pharmacists, and lab managers. Makes communicating important info very difficult: pt suffers.

    Advice to Management

    Practice yourCPMC values.

    Pros

    dedicated clinicians who absolutely have the best interest of the patients in mind

    Cons

    Sutter management too focused on bottom line and patient care suffered

    Advice to Management

    include clinicians in decision making, not just management (even if they were formerly in direct patient care-a lot has changed since many of these folks were in the trenches!)

    Pros

    Love the coworkers! Interacting ad helping patients is never boring.

    Cons

    Wage stagnation. The pay is good compared to other work, however comparable companies pay far more for the same work.

    Advice to Management

    Advocate for your employees pay raises. We should be paid the amount we are worth!

    Pros

    When you come to work at California Pacific Breast Health Center you feel like you are part of a large family. Everyone is very supportive of each other and team work is very strong. Management is pretty flexible when you need time off. Your work day passes by so fast, the environment is quick and fast paced. Your insurance benefits are pretty superior to many health plans. There is also an employer matching program.
      California Pacific was a great employer. I highly recommend them!

    Cons

    Parking is tough., you will need to park on the street or pay for garage parking. Trying to be trained in different modalities can also be challenging. If you make it clear during the interview what your expectations of the job are, then I think you will be fine and may have more of an opportunity to learn more. There is a great life work balance, and you will not take your work home with you.

    Advice to Management

    Offer additional training in different areas, both management and staff will benefit.
