    I have been working at Sharp HealthCare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Sharp has integrity and is fair with it's employees and puts patient safety and customer service as top priority. If you want to work for a company or receive care from a company with integrity and good values, this is the place to work. They truly do care about their staff and patients and their families and invest in them.

    Cons

    I can't think of anything negative. I really enjoy working here and there are a lot of long term employees

    Pros

    Sharp Grossmont was a very busy ER. I received a lot of medical experience with many knowledgable Doctors, PAs, and Nurses. Wonderful work environment and culture. Sharp cares about it's patients and employees.

    Cons

    Sometimes there were not enough ER techs which made it difficult to help all of the nurses.

    Pros

    Great culture
    Provides quality care for patients

    Cons

    Lack in inter-department communication and consistency of policy
    Sharp puts patient care above all needs, but employees treat each other poorly.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees more. If an issue presents, provide a safe space for employees to talk rather than assuming and dictating. If you want Sharp to be the best place to work then value your employee's opinions on how to improve.

    Advice to Management

    Be more organized

    I worked at Sharp HealthCare part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very updated with regulations.

    Cons

    Too many high paid managers but not enough staff. Very high turn overs of staff due to management issues but nothing is dine about it. This is Sharp issue at almost all locations.

    Advice to Management

    Management only look at profit numbers and under pressure from higher management to make bigger profit margins. However, they overlook at simple work place improvement might initially take more time but in long term make smoother process which will add to efficiency and evetually more productivity not to mention staff retention. DO IT RIGHT AND PROFIT WILL FOLLOW.

    I worked at Sharp HealthCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Sharp provides a good benefits package. The pay is also good (you must negotiate well in the beginning and start high). Overall nice co-workers and people, including upper management, are approachable. Telecommuting options started being offered in certain departments. Sharp did address pay concerns in 2016 by giving increased raises to non-union employees and changing the pay and raise structure for nurses.

    Cons

    As others have stated, the department and management team will determine your “Sharp Experience”. High turnover was commonplace in my department. Of a team of approximately 25 people at least ten resigned, not including another 5 to 6 temps were hired and released, during my tenure. This created a need to hire temps at a rate of sometimes $90 per hour in order to complete projects. It also meant reducing hiring standards to fill positions. Management refused to approve training requests claiming the covered subject matter did not relate to my current position, which was untrue. Working from home required a document to be filled out on top of clocking in and out each day, sending the team an email whenever you planned to be away from your desk for an extended period of time, documenting your daily hours, and another monthly document were you described your accomplishments. Team members gossiped about one another and passed around social media photos. Rules were not enforced equitably.

    Advice to Management

    Create a mechanism to track attrition rates and the average tenure on a team. Management should be questioned on the numbers. Three people leaving in the span of one month should spark red flags. This has been mentioned in previous “Ask Mike” emails as well.
