    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

    I worked at Sharp HealthCare full-time

    Pros

    Lots of room for improvement. Good pay and benefits. Big fish in little San Diego pond.

    Cons

    Old fashioned management style. Lots of old leaders, who have a hard time adapting to change.

    Advice to Management

    Management and Leadership aren't the same thing.

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

    Pros

    Great work environment with plenty of support staff, and knowledgeable technologists. Good communication between departments. Generally a great place to be employed.

    Cons

    While pay is competitive for the area, there are two hospital systems which, due to their unique nature (one being partially state funded and the other a managed care consortium) have significantly higher pay for most healthcare employees.

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

    Pros

    You'll always have a staff asking if you need anything or need any help. You'll never feel left behind. Also the food is pretty good here too.

    Cons

    The only cons would be that some of the patients tend to be a little difficult, but that's pretty much it l

    I worked at Sharp HealthCare part-time

    Pros

    The staff makes it worth it. Working as a team. Good peer support.

    Cons

    There's always seems to be a staff shortage. People leave faster than the department can hire new therapists and it reflects in your workload.

    Advice to Management

    Hire hire hire

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

    Pros

    Insurance, co-workers, experience and career growth (external) potential.

    Cons

    Executive management plays favorites, management allowed to bully staff, inconsistent, unqualified, etc. There needs to be a serious overhaul of Directors and VPs. The system is ripe for lawsuits, and for good reason. Some department management is untouchable, but they are the biggest offenders. Longevity of staff can be detrimental to the vision, compliance and unable to think outside of "the way it's always been".

    Advice to Management

    Rethink how you treat your staff; consistency is key and it must be the same across the system. Remember why you hired your staff; they came with talents and you should utilize, not stifle them.

    Pros

    Hires a lot of New Grads fresh out of school, some members of management very friendly and approachable

    Cons

    Pay is on the low end of what RN's in this area can anticipate making, healthcare/dental benefits are mediocre at best, little to no opportunities to conduct or participate in research, workload assignments and demands not always fair, management unsupportive of nurse expectations, needs and desires

    Advice to Management

    Nurses are the backbone of any healthcare institution, take care of the nurses and your organization will flourish.

    Pros

    Great Organization, with an inclusive culture. Benefits, Telework option (Where applicable)

    Cons

    No relocation support or not enough to entice talent from low cost areas, No Employee engagement groups

    Advice to Management

    All Staff should move to every other year and save money to give to employees. Get ahead of the curve in the hunt for talent San Diego is great but pricing is making it a no brainer to not relocate.
