    Pros

    Coworkers are warm and capable. Sonoma is a pleasant community in which to work. The medical-surgical unit, though small, is team-oriented and provides excellent patient care.

    Cons

    Nurses work 12hr shifts and are only given one 1/2hr break per shift. 15min breaks are never given and, if a nurse were to ask for this, he or she would be reprimanded. Overtime is only paid if a nurse works over 40hr in a week which means if a nurse works for 16 or 20hr in one shift, he or she will still only be paid straight time if her cumulative weekly hours have not yet reached 40. Administration routinely praises their accomplishments in increasing the margin or bottom line, but rarely ever mentions or thanks the nursing staff. Nursing supervisors are paid hourly and when they take their break, they must not leave the premises and must continue to hold the supervisor's phone. Most of the medical staff is entrenched in the "Old Boy Network" with episodes of yelling or demeaning night nurses who call with a question continuing to occur too often. Even the newer/younger ED physicians/hospitalists/surgeons can routinely be very difficult to work with and disrespectful to nursing staff.
