The Sharp experience is great hype for the organization, but once you are inside it's a relatively cold corporation.

Pros

They pay well and the benefits are good.

Cons

Little chance for advancement, the senior management is completely detached from service line personnel.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hold senior management accountable for success of leadership, and treat them the same way that line personnel are treated.

    Pros

    Large organization in the San Diego community committed to patient safety and care. They have raised the bar in the community.

    Cons

    They will work you to the bone, and show little gratitude when you do. They are the "sharp experience" to patients but do not care about employees. Most clinical managers are incredibly spoiled, and immature, and unwilling to work with non-nursing managers. It is always the clinical side of the business first, and a battle for the non-clinical side - there is truly no sense of team between the two types of groups. This is driven by a divided executive team that leads by example; clinical comes first and all others last. When the executives practice this way of thinking, the rest follow.

    Before considering taking a position with Sharp, ask important questions about the turnover rate, and the dept: What was the reason for the last person leaving the dept and how long ago did they leave? How many employees have left the dept in the last year? Do you use temporary staff, and how many are currently in the dept? If salaried, how many hours are typically worked each week, and how many days should you expect to stay late? Which executive has direct responsibility for the dept, and how would they describe his/her management style?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure executives truly practice the culture you promote, and who will hold directors, managers, and employees accountable to the same initiatives. Create a team environment from the top down between the clinical side of the business and everyone else.

    Consider eliminating the costly All-Staff assembly, and reward your employees directly for the hard work and loyalty they show every day. For some, a $200 bonus just doesn't reflect the hard work and 60-hours work weeks we have put in during the year (salaried employee).
