    I worked at Sharp HealthCare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The hearts of the executive leadership of this company are top notch - and definitely in the right place for a non-profit company focused on providing the best patient experience. I learned so much in terms of customer experience, in addition to so much more here. I would have stayed if I hadn't moved out of the area with my family.

    Cons

    Though the benefits are very competitive I think one could probably make a bit more elsewhere. Though if you're looking for a great company and opportunity to make a difference - I don't think you'll be disappointed. Growth may be an issue depending on your speciality. I was with the organization for over a decade and received a merit increase each year - but if you're looking to climb on the corporate side I've noticed most advances come to those who leave and come back.

    Advice to Management

    This place employs all levels of positions - I can only speak to the senior leadership because that's where I had the most exposure - Sharp hires a lot based on character in that regard. And I am glad that's their stance.

    Good environment to work. Friendly People. You get enough training material and time to understand application and processes.

    Pay is hourly so every minute count. You need to use your PTO for holidays. you need to badge in and out and keeping up with timecard is quite a challenge :)

    More Team Building activity. Keep work environment more team friendly and refreshing. Encourage people on informal meetings and communication.

    Great place to practice medicine and receive care. One of the best parts is that you and your family get to receive care there as well.

    Keep going! Spread the sharp experience to every aspect of the organization. Keep working to make sure providers have some sense of balance.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Sharp HealthCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Professional organization, hourly pay , good vacation time, (3 weeks to start), CME paid for one additional week, average starting hourly pay.

    Cons

    No pension, PA's are under valued in organization. Small yearly raises, despite the fact that PA's are expected to work hard and see multiple patients per day ( in excess of 20 -25 ) on an average day.

    Advice to Management

    As PA's are vital to the continued financial success in all healthcare organizations, employers should provide financial reward, ie: competitive salaries, and productivity pay. With ongoing healthcare reimbursement changes, the way in which PA's are reimbursed and retention plans will prove vital to the ongoing success of all healthcare organizations.

    They give notice to internal applicants so get into their system however you can by volunteering or participating in events held by the hospital.

    As with any company, jobs are posted with experience in mind so it is highly competitive. Make sure to set yourself aside from the competition.
