    Pros

    Many opportunities for advancement and the promote career development. Doctors are easy to work with and they help you to succeed.

    Cons

    Sometimes they can try to micro manage and too much pressure can be given to management. Pay increases are set so there is no true reason to go above and beyond what is necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to your employees and increase pay by allowing managers to reward with better performance.

    I worked at Sutter Health as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Continuous 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.

    Cons

    Very 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    People and opportunities. If you are a hard worker it is recognized.

    Cons

    Pay to their LTE/FTE staff is less than standard with other competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management and Supervisors should take a class or two on communicating with their staff... Although this has improved significantly, sometimes we let emotions run our meetings and it should not be this way.
