Pros

The company tries their best to get employees involved in their network of healthcare professionals - meaning, they have picnics, charity events, and things of the sort. The company is very large and it can be challenging to meet people in other departments at other locations; the company makes the effort to overcome the distance between employees and establish a network where you know a lot more Sutter Health employees than the people who work in your specific building. Additionally, the health system, often times, promotes from within and it is possible to quickly "climb the ranks" once you've proven yourself.

Cons

The con is that Sutter Health is not union. The company does their best to keep the employes happy by offering night differentials and weekend differentials; however, I know of instances where an employee was, in my opinion, wrongfully terminated. Please do not get me wrong, these instances are rare, but still, they would be less likely to occur had a union been established.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management is doing a great service by providing tuition reimbursement to its employees and offering scholarships to the children of employees; however, popularizing these programs would go a long way. Many employees, who may be interested in going back to school or getting more advanced licenses are unaware of these excellent services. It would be to your benefit to advertise these services in hopes that employees will use their newfound education to return the favor to the company and fill a very in-demand position.

    Pros

    Salary, health insurance, paid time off, vision, dental, however they are cutting these. Management used to be good before Sutter took over.

    Cons

    Outsourcing every thing possible and consolidating hundreds of office support jobs to one center for all Sutter Health affiliated hospitals and medical groups, HIM, accounting, HR, EAP. Hundreds have beeb laid off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit thinking only about your own pocketbooks. You have left a lot of people out on the streets.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Palo Alto, CA

    Pros

    Company is very loyal. When a department is relocated or dissolved, they find internal positions in other departments for those who want to stay.
    Lots of affiliates means lots of job opportunities if you want to do something else within the company.
    Patient care is the priority over profit
    Employees are involved in interviewing potential new hires, helping ensure they'll mesh with the group
    Company is growing and hiring

    Cons

    Since 2008 they've cut some part of the benefits package every year, ended the profit-sharing bonus and reduced COL raises
    Politics are horrible between regions, with executives frequently acting immaturely and vengeful towards other executvies
    Under-performing employees or those in positions they can't handle are dealt with in any way
    Promotions are based on favoritism over merit
    Virtually impossible to get more than a 3% COL raise, regardless of performance. The only way to really raise your compensation is to change jobs within the organization
    No training is provided. When you take on a new responsibility, you're expected to just figure it out on your own

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop slashing benefits
    address toxic political atmosphere
    address underperforming employees
    Train your people
