    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.

    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 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.
