    Pros

    This organization is truly impressive. The Management Teams leading patient care clinical and administrative positions has by far exceeded all of my expectations. This organization takes care of their employees and patients with integrity and love.

    There are no downsides. Sutter, Palo Alto Medical Foundation is always seeking employee input and hires only the sharpest, most compassionate people to care for our patients.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for your incredible and generous support. Keep choosing caring, compassionate, brilliant management professionals because they help the overall culture of the clinic environments. Thank you, Sutter Health for a fantastic opportunity to serve our patients and communities with empathy and compassion.

    Pros

    Sr. Leadership tries to put forth a positive and energetic workplace. Sutter Health does great work for the people and communities we serve. Excellent people to work with, mostly.

    Cons

    Internal politics re: middle managers/low level leads. Too many wannabe chiefs padding their resumes while trying to "look good" at the expense of educated, qualified staff.

    Advice to Management

    Take away tight control from low level leads.

    Pros

    Benefits, salary, work-life balance.

    Cons

    No real leadership in Technical Services, no direction, too many "C players", very poor communication or lack of transparency, too many suits in closed-door meetings, most directors only have that title because of a former CTO who was given far too much power, created great disruption then quit before he would have been shown the door.

    I'll sum it up this way: Tell five directors to go into a room, look at the same clock and ask them all what time it is. After you try to figure out why they all gave you a different time; you'll see that their inability to communicate effectively with each other makes it impossible for them to realize that most of them just can't see well enough to give you the correct answer.

    Great place to work if your ambition exceeds your ability and you want to move up the ladder while you watch your pension and 403(b) grow. Incredibly frustrating if you're an "A player" who enjoys what you do and just want the time that you spend at work to have real meaning and give you a sense of accomplishment.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire smart people and tell them what to do. Hire smart people so they can tell you what to do.

    Focus more on soft skills such as communication, business acumen, and teamwork. Too many long-term employees who resist change, don't know how to communicate effectively and simply are not capable of leading a team, let alone effectively work in one.

    Identify the cancerous employees and get rid of them.
