    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.

    Excellent opportunities for transfer to other positions and affiliates.

    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.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great opportunities to advance your career, great education department and classes offered. The pay is competitive and there is accrued paid time off.

    Cons

    It is a large company and the human resources department and payroll are all based out of Sacramento so it is a pain to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Recognition is rare, I think it would go a long way for employees to receive recognition they deserve.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Not stressful. Coworkers and management are easy to work with and very helpful.

    Cons

    Non-standard work hours. Commute isn't easy but do able. Not many other cons come to mind.

    Pros

    Amazing staff and patients. Everyone is helpful and willing to help out interns. It's a good way to know the managers

    Cons

    The construction that is going on makes the environment loud and disturbing for the patients. Also the rooms are small
