    Pros

    I like that they recognize and reward hard work even in the most simple of gestures, makes one feel appreciated. My team is wonderful and fun to work with too. I love that there are options for Overtime so if you need to make a little more you can.

    Cons

    The mundane is too much. Once you get the hang of the job, not many challenges to advance your skills. I like feeling like I'm growing and developing new skills but being here sometimes is just same old stuff.

    Advice to Management

    Create more growth opportunities for the hungry souls

    Pros

    Great benefits. Bonus capabilities. Friendly employed and good support from upper management. Salaries are comparable to other facilities in the region

    Cons

    Front line staffing could use some additional bedside nurses.. Financially focused, but reasonable for a health care company. Not enough front line staff

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified middle management

    Pros

    There is definitely a culture of wanting to manage people up into great opportunities. My experience here is that if you want to excel and grow, this is the place to do it. People are accepting of employee goals.

    Cons

    The performance review is somewhat different from what I used to and there was very little explanation regarding the process. It takes a long time and it is very involved. When it was all over, I did not feel I had gained anymore value than shorter processes I had participated in and other employers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging all levels to grow in their career.

    Pros

    Great benefits, advancement opportunities, friendly co-workers. Most of upper management is great to work with and very approachable. PTO, some overtime available and paid holidays. On the job training.

    Cons

    It depends on what department you are on/who's team you are on. Some managers are not easy to work with while others are excellent to work with. But you pretty much get that anywhere you work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work on motivating your employees! Make sure there is no hypocrisy/favoritism. Again, it's not like that with every employee but it does happen.

    Pros

    Great company with excellent pay and benefits. Dynamic challenging environment. There are opportunities for growth with their continuing education benefits and they encourage promotion from within.

    Cons

    Sutter Health is a large company with many regions, locations, and departments. Each of these have their own culture and environment so some areas have outstanding work environments others do not.

    Advice to Management

    The management I experienced was mostly fantastic. They encouraged and modeled excellence, but I would say at times they could be too lenient with poor performers which can cause resentment and frustration from peers. Picking up the slack for others while you are already working twice as hard as them is discouraging.
