    I have been working at Sutter Health part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Skilled caring staff, from doctors to all support staff. Focus on excellent patient care.

    Cons

    Large corganization so likely varies a lot depending on area and position hired into. Management push is saving money, finding ways to do more with less. As everywhere, office politics happen.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff and implement their ideas when possible. Compensate and reward us with money as well as praise for a job well done.

    Pros

    Overall great company. Good training. Good pay.

    Cons

    Other employees. I was in Oakland. The culture there was different. English should be absolutely required in my opinion.

    I have been working at Sutter Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits used to be free for me and all my family not anymore but still good once you compare to other companies.

    Cons

    Overworked, always short staffed. No legal breaks in years for medical assistants. Seniority has no value in here. They provide better work schedule for employees that started 6 months ago and nothing for the ones that have been with company for more than 10 years. Work life balance only if u belong to a especial group.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledging employees hard work and treat them equally as far work scheduling and respect employees seniority.

    I have been working at Sutter Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation, benefits, not much else

    Cons

    Extreme micromanagement, Poor work life balance, inefficient, no formal process or structure, lots of dysfunction and poor morale

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with applicants about the nature of the job, and that the PMO and IS departments are very immature. Trust and empower your people to lead, you're paying them for it, let them do it.
