    I have been working at Sutter Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - good benefits - PTO - lots of room for growth - leadership is very personable - they provide ways to improve or train on career skills - lots of employee incentives - non profit, money goes into improving work environment

    Cons

    - attendence policy is a bit strict BUT they have talked about changing it. I sat in on a meeting with the ceo and he said he wants people to know they can have a life outside work and he wants leadership to be compassionate and understand that things happen sometimes. so awesome!

    Advice to Management

    just update the attendence policy to be a little more lenient. I do understand it's important to be here and on time, that's why we're being paid. I just don't want a "strike" if I get sick. other than that, great company!!!

    I have been working at Sutter Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I am a bit of an anomaly in the health care industry ( or any industry these days) as a long-time employee. In my 21 years with Sutter Health, I have seen many changes in health care and am always impressed by the unremitting commitment to its not-for-profit mission accomplished through smart business practices. There is a demonstrated commitment to promoting from within and developing talent. My experience has included 3 different "careers" in my tenure with this company and I continue to feel valued and supported in my work. In spite of reducing reimbursements and higher costs, the innovation and shared best practices culture has resulted in high quality health care delivered across the organization.

    Cons

    Outside of technology, I'm not sure there is any industry that has experienced as many changes as health care so these comments are likely to resonate with anyone working for a health care system in the US today. I see inconsistent commitment to a strong physician strategy. Some of the local markets have strong relationships with the local provider community while others have virtually no strategy and therefore, weak relationships. Physicians are a fickle bunch but they are the key to sustaining and growing a diverse health care operation.

    Advice to Management

    There are notable changes at the system level that suggest an intention to address the issue I mentioned above. Don't get distracted from focusing on physician strategies which arguably may not yield quick results in the face of the many "fires" that present.
