    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.

    Pros

    Sutter treats its employees exceptionally well. I am a 15+ year veteran healthcare worker and I have worked for most of the "biggies" in California (Dignity, Kaiser, etc.) and I have to say that Sutter is the best place I have ever worked. Excellent compensation and salary packages and a very positive work environment where employees are encouraged to have a good life-work balance.

    Cons

    It is sometimes very difficult to get hired at Sutter.

    Pros

    flexible work from home days

    Cons

    no training; poorly/untrained supervisory staff; no lateral movement

    Advice to Management

    teach your supervisors how to lead, manage, and deal with poor workers. Allow us to get some training for growth or future team transfer and job enhancement, not all working supervisors actually work.

    Pros

    Sutter Medical Foundation is a great company that prides itself in putting quality patient care first. The benifits are great.

    Cons

    Although the pay is good, I think it could be more competitive with other Health Care companies in the market. Employees are expected to work outside of their scope of practice and take on more responsibility without more pay.

    Middle management across the board are often disconnected from clinical staff/clinical needs in terms of morale and support for workers as they are too caught up in administrative red tape.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule and decent access to care.

    Cons

    Only provide $1000 education allowance each year.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to promote within faster so they feel like they have a career and not a job.
