What is the salary like at Sutter Health?

Pros

By far some of the most wonderful people I've worked with at the middle and frontline level. Meaningful work for someone not from healthcare originally. Good pay, amazing benefits, good PTO/leave, paid conferences, tuition reimb. I get the impression that clinicians have had it better at Kaiser/UCSF/Stanford but as someone from outside the industry free insurance is a godsend.

Cons

Bad HR processes, tough to get promoted, especially since you have to apply internally even if you're just moving locations. Sick/PTO time is one bank. Upper management seems out of touch with what actually goes on in the workplace, too focused on results and "culture" nonsense to care, short-sighted. The healthcare industry seems like it lives in feast or famine, currently in famine so micro-layoffs of staff, which is the wrong and easy way out is a key strategy and you wonder why unions happen? Feels like pushing a glacier to change things, very conservative organization when it comes to regulations, a bit demoralizing when you see the bad processes workers have to put up with to get their job done, same with overburdened middle managers.

Advice to Management

Make respect for the people who serve you and your patients THE core value (not the dozen you have now), don't let them continue to work in the bad processes they do, especially Epic. Invest in their development, give them challenging work but in an environment where they can succeed. It will pay dividends.

Good pay, amazing benefits, good PTO/leave, paid conferences, tuition reimb.

Does Sutter Health offer bonus pay?

Pros

Work life balance. Nothing else.

Cons

Lowest paying non profit in Bay Area. Everything that you can think of. Old school. Head quarters of PAMF especially where the orientation happens will look like a mechanic shop or go down. Sutter Health policy does not offer reference or recommendation if you leave Sutter Health.So, your chance of landing a better job may be in trouble. No bonus. No relocation expense. No upward mobility. Revolving door. Toxic culture with politics.

Advice to Management

Take care of the employees as much as patients.

No bonus.
