    I have been working at California Pacific Medical Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, friendly and helpful colleagues, great concern and care for patients, and often a good team environment. Large company affiliated with Sutter Health Network.

    Cons

    Lots of cuts in the last few years - pay, retirement contributions, staffing, shuttle frequency between campuses. Upper management is out of touch with staff and doesn't seem to want to improve anything if it doesn't directly impact the bottom line.

    Pros

    Great coworkers in every department, caring and competent clinical staff. Excellent physicians. Great healthcare benefits.

    Cons

    Increasingly corporate medical structure. Unresponsive and out of sight leadership structure. Lacking incentives and recognition for achievement and loyalty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be more proactive and visible. Upper management has very little face to face interaction with workforce, lending to low morale.

    Pros

    Good pay and good benefits

    Cons

    Problems with management and staffing. Everything comes down to saving and making money rather than helping patients. It feels like employees and patients are just business material.

    I have been working at California Pacific Medical Center part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some good nurses, especially on 5N, great respiratory therapists, although they do not get the recognition they deserve.

    Cons

    Overworked, understaffed, lots of problems due to this, leading to poor patient care, and very unhappy employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go work a few shifts of every department and see what it is really like... Remember patient care is your priority, not,profits... And treat your employees with respect... Promote more and stop treating them as if we are in the pre-Industrial Age ... Unions would,really help this organization.

    I worked at California Pacific Medical Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good medical and retirement benefits. Not all management are incompetent. Has doctors who are extremely good at what they do. Great experience if you want to deal with the public.

    Cons

    Depending on which campus you work at will determine the results of what you have to deal with. Each campus has its own independent culture. Hard to get raises...received total of $1 raise in 3 years. Quick to be blamed for faults between departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Non skilled department (Support Service type) managers do not promote for hard work. They only promote their favorites and then once they run out they promote by seniority.

    Pros

    It is an exciting place to work. The hospital is on the cutting edge of new developments in medicine.

    Cons

    With the alliance with Sutter Health, the hospital mind set is to give every one more and more to do. To the point that a good employee cannot do a good job because of the overload. I have worked there a long time and some of the things I see do not equate to good patient care.
