    I worked at Sharp HealthCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Sharp Experience provides growth, opportunities, and life balance. Pay and benefits are above average. Management is open to employee and input and innovation is welcome.

    Cons

    Management and leadership overreact to rapid changes in the Healthcare marketplace. Proactive planning is limited and communication to stakeholders is poor.

    19 years really says it all!
    I love the people and the mission.

    I don't have any, sorry.

    Pros

    The health benefits and the care you receive from the sharp Doctors are very good.

    Cons

    I worked at sharp well over ten years and if your not part of management your screwed.

    Advice to Management

    Sharp is not the best place to work, as per your motto. Your normal everyday workers are being victimized, bullied and are afraid to say anything about it,fear of repercussions. Upper management needs to hold lower management to a higher standard. Human Resources needs to be re-orged due to them being hopeless. .


  6. Mostly Pros and would've stayed had I not moved.

    Pros

    Affordable health coverage, 401k, supportive admin, and room to grow and be trained. They have an extensive education dept. So if there is something you need to be better at your job, chances are theres a free class for that. I took medical terminology as a front desk staff and then once I received my LVN license (which they 1/2 off) I was able to get training on Diabetic teaching, TB testing, suture removal, catheter placement, unna boot care, and I got my IV certificate. Every year you get a small raise based on your performance. Great if you have a good supervisor, not so good if your supervisor isn't generous. It pays to keep track of your own success to bring up at the end of every year.

    Cons

    As front desk staff I became frustrated with the goals to be better on a subjective survey taken by patients and track my customer service. It took too much time when I wanted to focus on helping patients and work on efficiency. Only in San Diego so relocation becomes an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Spread to Orange and Los Angeles County

    Pros

    Good teamwork across job levels, variety of work when floating, professional behavior, good parking, good cafeteria food, good salads, and frozen yogurt..

    Cons

    I have to write twenty words against the hospital care system and I really don't have anything negative to say-sorry

    Advice to Management

    Ok-I need to write 20 words again..if I could say one suggestion it would be to give per diem include as time employed when hired as P/T or F/T.

    Pros

    There are excellent opportunities to take free classes and seminars. Management is accessible for the most part. The Sharp experience is a great celebration event every year.

    Cons

    There are a lot of unit politics. The union is weak. The bottom line trumps patient safety most of the time. Not much nurse autonomy.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your nurses to do what is best for the patient. The least expensive way is not always the safest way.
