    I have been working at Sharp HealthCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Senior ER techs are very experienced, leads are always supportive, and it’s a great learning environment. Nurses are very caring.

    Cons

    Challenging patient population with comorbidities make the shift very long and challenging. Many of the patients speak Spanish, so bi-lingual is almost a must.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the staffing budget in order to retain experienced nurses. Sharp does a great job training new nurses, keep them with us.

    I have been working at Sharp HealthCare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Dental benefits are excellent and health benefits are cheap, pay raises are good. Good morale. Have recognition program

    Cons

    Some management don’t want to listen, stressfully but good team work, policies and directives are sometimes followed.

    Advice to Management

    Have anonymous suggestion box or email so workers could freely express their concerns.

    I have been working at Sharp HealthCare (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Sharp invests in the physical safety of its employees, unlike any other company I have worked with, they also are proactive in offering educational meetings that are relevant to the job we do. Management is fair and flexible with requested time off and there are plenty of opportunities to pick up extra shifts.

    Cons

    The use of customer surveys scores to determine department raises for staff (in part) seems a bit unfair ; satisfaction of a customer can be influenced by many factors, some of which is not within the control of the staff.

    I have been working at Sharp HealthCare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Option to work from home, hourly wages ensure compensation for on call hours worked. Reputable company name, good for a resume.

    Cons

    Leadership is so out of touch with the day to day responsibilities of analysts. Decisions are made that make little to no sense, no real justification provided to try and understand reasons of decisions. Due to the timing/communication of said decisions, we are not given the tools to provide adequate customer service to our clients. General frame of mind is to “wing it” which is unacceptable in a health care environment. Feedback is encouraged but it falls on deaf ears.

    While we are hourly, and are compensated for on call hours, we routinely have overtime requests denied. Many you speak to will tell you that they put in OT hours that are unpaid due to their workloads and due dates, they have no other choice.

    Would be nice if the “Sharp Experience” they advertise so heavily was practiced within this department.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in analysts when making job impacting decisions and listen to their thoughts and suggestions. Don’t invite them in as a courtesy, actually LISTEN to them. Try and engage in their day to day so you have an actual sense of what is going on, don’t just assume based off of timesheet numbers.


  6. "Medical Assistant"

    I have been working at Sharp HealthCare part-time

    Pros

    Good doctors and team mates to work with. This company overall strives It's best to give the best patient experience!

    Cons

    Terrible management. Very political. As the years go by It becomes more of a social club than a proffessional organization. Its all about money, and less about quality.

    Advice to Management

    Value your good employees, invest in you hard working compassionate employees. Be more professional and leave the gossip behind closed doors.

    Nurses and staff truly care for patients / empathetic
    Strict zero-tolerance policy on work place misconduct

    Certain hospitals have a click environment mostly Coronado and the Skilled Nursing Facilities though

    Advice to Management

    Crack down on those Skilled Nursing facilities in Coronado ! The patients suffer

    I have been working at Sharp HealthCare full-time

    Pros

    The ability to work remotely is offered by most managers.

    Cons

    Overworked, we are hourly but OT is hard to get approved. End up working OT anyway without clocking it bc deadlines need to be met.

    Advice to Management

    Would be just as useless to provide advice here as it is to provide advice within the company.

    I worked at Sharp HealthCare full-time

    Pros

    friendly staff, great benefits, sharp experience

    Cons

    Allow your new staff to learn the job, do not compare to employees that have been there forever.

    Advice to Management

    Give more guidance on what the issue is.
