    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.

    Pros

    Decent pay, nice coworkers, some good training, tries to be patient centered, major employer

    Cons

    SMF is currently losing lots of senior management staff due to frustration of not being able to effectively make change. Also appears to be some budget woes. Lots of duplications across the systems, aging doctor's and some negative office staff members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ID top staff members and attempt to keep them

    Not to be distant to departments outside of the main hospital, being on the back burner interferes with work productivity

    Pros

    Great bunch of pediatricians but overworked.

    Cons

    Every 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 ManagementAdvice

    Listen. Rely on the insights and capacities of junior work force.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    If 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.

    I have been working at Sutter Health part-time for less than a year

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Corporate 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 ManagementAdvice

    Ask 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.
