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 Management

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

    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 Management

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