    Excellent medical center with a lot of complexity and career options.

    Business Manager (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsContinuous education. They have lecture series like the Mini Medical College that allow you to constantly gain new knowledge. Extremely intelligent doctors. High level of excellence in healthcare services.

    ConsVery complex organization so it is not always that easy to figure out the right career progression for advancing. There are opportunities to work for private practice MD groups that are affiliated with Sutterhearh (members of the Medical Staff) and opportunities as Sutterhealth employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSet up a career counseling department so that dedicated employees can better navigate the system, get promoted without threatening their existing bosses.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe pay with Sutter is decent for the area. They have good opportunities such as paying for up to 24 hours of continuing education credits per year. Most of the staff members are a pleasure to work with. Paid time off is hard to beat.

    ConsShort staffing at times makes it hard to get time off but that may be more of just a departmental issue.

    It really is a good place to work, except for one thing...

    Clinical Scheduling Specialist (Current Employee)
    Sacramento, CA

    ProsGreat benefits. There is some room for advancement. Seems to be better now with the new COO

    ConsIf you work an administrative job, you are REQUIRED to take off holidays, BUT you have to use your own PTO to fulfill your 80 hours. It doesn't matter if you don't want to use your PTO or if you want to work, say Labor Day. It's not an option.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSee above

    Does not listen.

    Physician (Former Employee)
    Sacramento, CA

    ProsGreat bunch of pediatricians but overworked.

    ConsEvery year complained about work ethics of the person I worked with but was never addressed. This is not the tight knit organization it claims to be . Money and profitability over run values, ethics and honesty.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen. Rely on the insights and capacities of junior work force.

    After nine years and helping to build a new department (working 45-50 hours a week for 40 hours pay), I was laid off.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsExcellent health insurance. Unionized employees at least get paid for hours worked.

    ConsMy direct manager/supervisor changed six times in nine years. (I kid you not.) Terrible morale. People holing on because they needed the job. The facility CEO (my second... or was it third?) got perspiration across his upper lip every time he had to lead a quarterly meeting with general employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have good-hearted, smart, skilled, caring health professionals -- give them good-hearted, smart, skilled, caring guidance.

    Co-workers really depend on which hospital you are working at.

    Hospital Security Officer (Current Employee)
    Sacramento, CA

    ProsNegotiated pay and matched my salary from previous hospital in the Solano area.

    ConsCorporate runs the company like a fine tuned machine. You kind of feel like a gear in the machine, and nothing more. Just a replaceable part.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAsk how the job is going, resolve issues between co-workers instead of letting petty issues become bigger issues that people get fired over. Calm your site leads down or promote them to supervisors.

    Good Place to Work

    Analyst (Former Employee)
    Sacramento, CA

    ProsGreat benefits. Nice people to work with. Good team environment.

    ConsWhen looking for other positions internally (promotions, position change), existing employees are not given preferential treatment. Must compete with everyone that applies externally.

    Great company to work for.

    Medical Commercial Biller (Former Employee)
    Burlingame, CA

    ProsGreat company to work with, I only worked there for 6 months. The workers there were very helpful when I needed help

    ConsI can't think of anything bad.
