    I have been working at Sonoma Valley Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Community-based, personal, caring service; pretty good benefits. Mostly fun, professional team players are employed, the rest are weeded out.

    Cons

    Some obvious favoritism here, some "special" people get to work from home from across the country. Others have their whole families employed at crazy salaries

    Advice to Management

    Please think seriously about upgrading the cafeteria food, for goodness sake we are located in the heart of the food/ wine country. Crusty, dried out stream table "breakfast" entrees, blecchh!

    Pros

    Wonderful environment, caring employees, beautiful location, progressive management. It truly is a great place to work. The staff cares about each other. Management encourages growth and development.

    Cons

    Usual politics. If you are new it seems like everyone knows each other. It takes time to make changes but even the doctors seem to be coming around to the 21st century.

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Wonderful staff, good benefits. I really enjoyed working as a diet clerk. The kitchen was run very professionally.

    Cons

    Basing to much off patient reviews. Always trying to cut costs and save money. Small staff, so not a lot of flexibility to move positions.

    I have been working at Sonoma Valley Hospital part-time

    Pros

    Coworkers are warm and capable. Sonoma is a pleasant community in which to work. The medical-surgical unit, though small, is team-oriented and provides excellent patient care.

    Cons

    Nurses work 12hr shifts and are only given one 1/2hr break per shift. 15min breaks are never given and, if a nurse were to ask for this, he or she would be reprimanded. Overtime is only paid if a nurse works over 40hr in a week which means if a nurse works for 16 or 20hr in one shift, he or she will still only be paid straight time if her cumulative weekly hours have not yet reached 40. Administration routinely praises their accomplishments in increasing the margin or bottom line, but rarely ever mentions or thanks the nursing staff. Nursing supervisors are paid hourly and when they take their break, they must not leave the premises and must continue to hold the supervisor's phone. Most of the medical staff is entrenched in the "Old Boy Network" with episodes of yelling or demeaning night nurses who call with a question continuing to occur too often. Even the newer/younger ED physicians/hospitalists/surgeons can routinely be very difficult to work with and disrespectful to nursing staff.
