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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    Pros

    Fair and consistent people management. Excellent health benefits. Interesting work at the forefront of Healthcare Reform.

    Cons

    Hierarchical structure makes it difficult to initiate new ideas. Very outdated with internal infrastructure technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow new leaders to bring their new ideas to the table and give them a fair hearing.

    Pros

    Good benefits (health insurance). No other pros that I can think of.

    Cons

    Poor training. The first two weeks of training was excellent, after that, you are on your own. The way you learn is by being written up by QA. You earn PTO time but are not allowed to take it without 48 hours notice (who can give 48 hours notice when sick or in an emergency). Have absolutely no leeway on lateness, even if you call in. They relocated 35 miles to the north of their original location with no public transportation available and poor highway situations and have no tolerance for being late. As a result, they have massive turnover in their employees after they have invested major time and money into training. Poor morale in company. What they profess to believe that the patient comes first, it is all about the stats and pushing as many people to collections as fast as possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value good employees and recognize accomplishments.
