    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.

    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.

    I worked at California Pacific Medical Center full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    My co-workers were good people trying to work in a culture filled with management that was demeaning, oppressive and hostile. Sutter does pay well however it is not worth working in a horrible environment.

    Cons

    My only good experience at CPMC was the day I gave notice and my last day. Senior management was filled with infighting and they promoted intimidation and humiliation. Senior management was clueless about how employees felt about their work environment and there was little communication. The communication that did filter down was not trusted because it was never accurate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house and become more diverse

    Pros

    Some nice people, a lot of caregivers really are there for the patients. The day-to-day employees really do their best by the patients.

    Cons

    Sutter basically bribes leaders to do what the mega-corporation wants it to do, thusly most employees get screwed by top-down decisions while Directors and above make bank. NOT-FOR-PROFITS DON'T DO BONUSES, managers and above get bonuses.
