    Pros

    CPMC is a fair and equitable employer. Micromanagement is kept to a minimum. The staff are friendly and good to work with overall.

    Cons

    This company does not pay as high as other similar organizations. They also operate on a bare minimum structure across all aspects of the org besides the top.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a bit more money on your frontline staff and equipment to improve morale and the patient experience. Bare bones operations are not good in a healthcare setting.

    Pros

    Rn's, MD's, techs and service staff are motivated, competent, and create a fun work environment... Even on hard days. The medicine is strong at CPMC.

    Cons

    Sutter continues to reduce staff, wearing us all down. Our voices are never heard by upper management. The techs are severely understaffed (and we're cheap labor compared to RN's and MD's.
