My San Francisco (SPMF) corporate office experience as a contractor

Project Coordinator (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at Sutter Health as a contractor for less than a year

ProsThe people who are not in management are very nice.

ConsI have to mirror the cons as written by someone else on this forum about their SPMF experience, "Upper management shows no appreciation of staff. Moral is very low. Communication is nonexistent. One of the worse contracts I have been on in the past 8 years.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide real leadership and get involved in your projects. I worked on the Windows 7 project as a project coordinator. A simple walk by to thank your staff for their hard work will go a long way.

Not worth leaving previous position for failed promise

Rancho Cordova, CA

I worked at Sutter Health as a contractor for less than a year

ProsPay was excellent, safe workplace. great facilities.

Consthey did not honor promise to train nor allow me to complete 6 month contract as promised.

IT Support

IT Support (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at Sutter Health as a contractor for more than a year

ProsPriorities are straight, patients come first.
They don't expect you to do more than you can do and give you enough time to get your work done.
All in all, great group of dedicated people.

ConsI have never worked anywhere else that required everyone to be a spreadsheet specialist. They live and breathe spreadsheets.
Management is tied up in meetings all morning at the least and is often unapproachable.

Advice to Senior ManagementMeetings have taken a life of their own far over and above their usefullness.

nightshift nightmare

Registered Nurse (Former Employee)
Santa Cruz, CA

I worked at Sutter Health full-time for more than 5 years

Prosgood pay, great staff, caring nurses

Consfavoritism, unfair disciplining actions, no union, will fire you after 5 years of nightshift even as a single mom with a three year old for being late 3 mins or not being dressed and ready for work at exactly 2300, and breech confidentially laws, without explanation as an "at will" employer and give you only 2 days of benefits after they fire you. they say, "we + you", which is now "we minus you" . Management is always turning over, and they given per diems dayshift positions but force status nurses to work nightshift for over 5 years, then fire them when they were NEXT in line to go to days, EPIC is a nightmare for perinatal nurses and a huge FAIL. some doctors have too much clout and blame others for their own bad decisions....

Advice to Senior Managementtry looking at how a hospital is run that has a good system in place. your policies are outdated. and stop being biased.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good company, bad management

Great Company overall

Deposit Services (Former Employee)
Sacramento, CA

I worked at Sutter Health full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThey provide a structured training process, reasonable pay, and benefits.

ConsIt's hard to network within the company to obtain cross training and building multiple skills. Managers seem to have a lot of social politics that interfere with the employees advancement opportunities.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink about the employees and their hard work and dedication, instead of who Manages them and the issues you have with that Manager.
