    I have been working at Sutter Physician Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company is always interesting and dynamic. The work is engaging and it feels important and impactful. The culture is collaborative and feels like every opinion matters. It is incredibly exciting to be part of a company in a huge growth mode.

    Cons

    There are still a lot of small company processes that havent been shed yet. It can be hard to stay with what is important as it changes so quickly. Not very diverse Leadership Team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to let go of old practices and really shake things up.

    Pros

    Sutter Health is a known brand in Northern California, but is just gaining ground as an employer in Utah. The factor that have made Sutter successful in California are taking root here as well. I am impressed with the positive culture and mission which are apparent in decision-making and daily work. There are many opportunities for development and promotion - the management team, for example, is predominantly made up of internal promotions. I have been promoted twice in my 2.5 years with the company. There is a commitment to work-life balance, which means a lot to me. I am continually amazed by my incredible co-workers and their dedication to serving patients.

    Cons

    High rate of growth means constant change, which can be either a positive or negative thing depending on whether you are looking for movement or stability.

    Pros

    Company tries to create a team atmosphere and for the most part succeeds.
    Some managers are more open to worker input than others.
    None of the managers I met were nasty or mean. Rumor has it that such persons are fired or moved back to a non-manager position.

    Cons

    Some business practices are old and inflexible. Others are very up-to-date. It really depends on which unit you work for. Must record hours to nearest 15 minutes. Overtime discouraged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not expect past and present success to continue forever.

    Pros

    Strong culture that is continuously nurtured and developed.
    Decisions are made collaboratively and, with the employees at heart.
    People here truly care and have passion for the work and passion for purpose.
    Leaders are dedicated to supporting business objectives and goals - all with the client and patient at heart.
    My boss listens to me and truly cares about my well being.

    Cons

    Work-life-balance.
    Deadlines are sometimes unreasonable - but resources are available, if you know how to ask for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    FInd ways to continue to reward high performers.
    Differentiate between A, B, and C players during performance reviews. Half a percent or even a whole percent merit increase is not a differentiator.

    Pros

    Great place to grow and develop in your career aspirations. The leadership really listens to concerns and feedback and tries to implement change when possible. Sutter Physician Services has allowed me the flexibility to have a work/life balance and above all else, the people I work with are the best.

    Cons

    The organization structure is a bit confusing to understand but could be the result of growth and change within the company.

    Pros

    The company offers flexible work (for some) and the benefits are excellent

    Cons

    This company has serious problems. Not a professional environment. It is out of date, there is limited talent of senior leadership, a tough bullying CEO, and lack of decision making is rampant. This company almost completely operates independently from the parent company, Sutter Health. Don't be fooled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating your employees like children. Empower your managers. Be consistent. Hold others accountable.

    Pros

    In the beginning it was a great place to work until they changed the Senior Management. After that, employees were starting to leave because of the hostile work environment.

    Cons

    Don't ever apply for workers comp. If you get injured, go to your regular doctor for treatment. By filing for workers comp, they will make you life miserable and try and make you resign.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop overworking the employees
