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

    Sutter Health medical practitioners are first rate. Hopefully dependance on Information Technology will not detract from their ability to provide good care, because Sutter Health Information Services is a tremendously immature organization.

    Cons

    Project Managers were placed into highly volatile positions, expected to represent the interests of Servcie Line Management. That's normal and definitely not the problem. The Management would hide behind the Project Managers. On occasions when the other Service Lines would push back (which they do, because senior leadership does nothing to facilitate their effectively working together) and while the Project Manager was doing exactly as directed, the Management would play dumb and throw the Project Manager to the wolves. This is compounded by Sutter Health insisting on underpaying resources (employees and contractors). The talented ones leave for greener pastures, while the rest are promoted into more senior roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a moment to spend some time with the Management from the other Service Lines, genuinely collaborating with them to successfully provide services that benefit the organization as a whole. Work with the Service Lines to understand and anticipate their needs. You spend way too much effort being reactive. Try to be proactive for a change. Learn to quickly make a decision and stand by it. Stop hiding in the trenches and expending all your effort to defray responsibility. Lastly, hire and promote managers that actually have a clue how to manage resources and hold them accountable to deliver results.
