    I have been working at Sutter Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    OK benefits and health care perks.

    Cons

    Management out of control. Do more with less and use unskilled staff to make it happen. Quality health care dumped out the window for profit and Bonus money for management. Sutter health We care about are "Bonus Money" for cutting Quality care for our patients.

    Advice to Management

    Run a Bank and get out of the healthcare business. Where ever you go for the next 20yrs. When will it be about the Patient, Staff and those who need services that make Health Care what it should be.

    This is a company that has great benefits and professional development options for employees. Turnover is low and most people are sincerely dedicated to their work and positive impact.

    There needs to be increased communication and standardized operational practices across multiple affiliates.

    Stay on track.

    Pros

    Slow pace, very easy job. Everyone is easy going. No pressure.

    Cons

    Many non-nurse employees are low-skilled, (including IT). Seems to have Gov't/DMV work enviornment. There are no pressure to succeed, just work 8 hours then go home. No one gets fired, so no pressure to work.

    Advice to Management

    Need to have employees re-trained or have options to demote employees.

    Neutral Outlook

    Pros

    Exciting, fascinating & very educational. Every day at work was an opportunity to learn and see something new and interesting. Terrific group of people (with the exception of a few physicians) to work with. Very difficult and challenging occupation which entailed hard work, concentration and attention to detail throughout the day yet I loved it. I looked forward to going to work everyday.

    Cons

    On many occasions I'd express concerns, opinions or recommendations to my superiors that were often ignored or dismissed as unimportant. I often felt marginalized by some of the pathologists or heads of related departments (i.e. microbiology, histology, cytology etc). While the Pathology Lab Manager was very competent, approachable and efficient I found the majority of my immediate supervisors to be somewhat obstinate, dismissive and/or pessimistic which lead to an occasional hostile working environment for me. In addition after nearly one year of hard work, loyalty and dependability I was never offered an increase in pay, although in truth I never asked for one. Despite this I found the job had greater pros than cons.

    Advice to Management

    Management should always be approachable, even-tempered and fair to all employees and be willing to listen to any complaints, suggestions or incidents that employees may need or want to discuss. Management would benefit from regular contact with staff (via bi-weekly or monthly meetings) and reward consistent, helpful and hard-working employees with praise (privately), a pay increase or a simple, "Thank You.
