    I worked at California Pacific Medical Center full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at California Pacific Medical Center

    Pros

    Friendly work atmosphere, helpful colleagues, organization seems genuinely concerned about helping others, recognizes individual contributions. People in my unit are given the control to get their work done as they see fit (I'm in a non-medical position). They are flexible in allowing employees to adjust their schedules if circumstances call for it as long as they get their work done.

    Cons

    Sometimes slow to financially reward top performers, they have reduced some benefits in recent years, feels as if management could do a better job of holding everyone to the same standards. Seems as if high-performers are expected to do more while less enthusiastic and productive colleagues are allowed to coast.

  7. Wonderful place to work!

    Pros

    The health insurance is good, but that could soon be changing. They have a good pension plan and retirement although matches are becoming scarce. They have good PTO and educational hours.

    Cons

    Getting too big. The pay is not competitive and cost of living adjustments are no longer given. There is no transparency. Management creates a negative environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The compensation needs to reviewed. The secretive culture needs to be retired. Trust your employees and open the lines of communication.

    I worked at California Pacific Medical Center

    Pros

    Nothing positive only kudos to staff who are holding on to such kind of leadership

    Cons

    Managers are disrespectful, bully and create hostile work environment . Lacks credible leadership and very hostile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be realistic with your expectations from staff and clean out the toxic environment from top down management were nurses don't have any say in any decision making/ mid management. TREAT YOUR EMPLOYEE with RESPECT, DIGNITY. Get a check on your HR never in support of employee who's on management side. COMPLAINS OF BULLYING , HOSTILE WORK ENVIRONMENT are never taken into consideration or supported but you get to pay for further verbal mental abuse .

    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.
