    Pros

    Great staff, good flexibility, and all around supported, and usually staffed well.

    Cons

    The RN pay is the lowest compared to all major hospitals in San Diego

    Advice to Management

    Please pay your nurses better, it’s expensive to live in San Diego, you want to keep your good nurses I hope.

    I have been working at Sharp HealthCare full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The best health benefits by far Decent PTO accrual Occasional Work From Home depending on manager Possibility for setting your preferred work hours as long as it's 8 hrs Good knowing you're working for the top health care provider in San Diego

    Cons

    Behind the times as far as administrative innovation Almost impossible to get new and creative ideas through A lot of employee turnover in poorly-managed departments Some managers micromanage and have no trust for employees Culture can really lack if you're on the wrong team No cool/fun benefits Most employees are older and are set in their ways A lot of time focused on the wrong thing, wasting time and money... that won't grow business

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your employees have to say and trust them. If a whole team is unhappy, you need to really reconsidered the problem. Don't pick upper management over an entire team. There's a reason people are quitting left and right to send a message and get out of here.
