Currently working at a Big 4 company as a Risk Analyst with a B.S in Business Admin. Looking to pivot into the healthcare industry. What are some jobs that I can “qualify for”. I was looking at compliance/legal roles, HR, finance. Are layoffs big within this industry? I’m in Northern California. Looking at Kaiser/Sutter Health since they have plenty of job openings.

I have just applied for a position at Sutter Health, working remotely. Does anyone have experience working on the finance side of the aisle for them in a remote setting? I just want to make sure I have my ducks in a row and know what I may be getting into. Thanks!

- 2.0Feb 27, 2015AnalystFormer Employee, more than 3 yearsEmeryville, CA
Pick up a broad skillset due to interdisciplinary job functions of the team. Ability to quickly be a company asset and stand out if you put effort towards this. Resourceful and supportive coworkers that can get things done and can be counted on to help with any problem.
Business processes are often unruly. Constant battle to get business travel reimbursement corrected due to misinterpretation of policies. When the whole department travels a significant amount, there is little excuse for this. Mid-level management lacks discipline in communicating to each other and to their employees. Lacks effective employee management causing visible work dissatisfaction for whole teams and erupting in extreme personality conflicts. History of relying on disincentives and punitive actions to manage employee motivation and actions. Authoritative management style. Low standard and sometimes unprofessional product quality is acceptable. Arbitrarily stacking more responsibilities on most effective employees to the point of overburdening them instead of training an available coworker to qualify for the role. Rampant employee favoritism. Corporate politics reduce effectiveness of working with other teams.4

Some of the people who work in the service level are hard working good people. They have a nice break room in one of the Mather sites?
The senior leadership staff at Sutter Health Information Services is horrible. There is no strategy, leadership cohesion or structure. Due to the lack of professional leadership, middle managers and staff are constantly stepping on each other to garner visibility or promote self importance. So far from company mission values/statements, unprofessional and borderline hostile work environment. Sadly much work is needed and will not get done efficiently because of poor management. The staff turn over is significant and is not addressed because human resource bears no importance. There are many key roles and most leadership roles that are occupied by people with little, no or not related experience. Roles are filled based by leadership favorites rather the right candidate for the role in an alarmingly blatant manner, truly discouraging.12Sutter Health Response7y

Sutter provides great benefits for you and the familiy. They have a great working culture and work hard to keep their employees happy. The work is constantly changing which never makes for a boring day!
Pay is not as competative with comperable companies and it is very hard to move up. There are very limited management positions available and when one becomes vacant they seem to already have their canidate chosen.Sutter Health Response9y

Learned a lot and made connections with some good people.
Management is terrible been working for the same location for 4 years and they all hire within their circle. Very clicky
- 3.0Aug 26, 2015Anonymous EmployeeFormer Employee
Great people who work here. The management is great and they all provide the best possible patient care to all their patients.
No bonuses. The pay could be higher since the work load is high. There are no great perks in being am employee here.

I loved working with the team of engineers and architects
Upper management asks the impossible. Middle management refuses to stand up for themselves and explain why things can't be done.5
- 2.0May 30, 2015RN Staff NurseCurrent EmployeeRoseville, CA
Great nursing staff who try their best to give excellent patient care despite working chronically understaffed. Present benefit package is satisfactory but Corporate wants to redesign it to the detriment of the staff.
Management doesn't listen to nurse's concerns and runs the hospital on a shoestring budget. Corporate believes employees are interchangeable and pays too much attention to the bottom line. Sutter Health provides minimal to no charity care despite obscene profits.5
- 3.0Feb 7, 2018Business AnalystFormer Employee, more than 5 yearsSacramento, CA
Good benefits. Friendly and knowledgeable peers. Room for growth
Meeting deadlines is priority even when application has multiple issues - similar to the way Microsoft launches new software with known issues. Upper management ignores the suggestions of staff and goes live with known issues to the detriment of hospital staff and patients
- 3.0Apr 3, 2014IT SupportFormer Contractor, more than 1 yearSan Francisco, CA
Priorities are straight, patients come first. They don't expect you to do more than you can do and give you enough time to get your work done. All in all, great group of dedicated people.
I have never worked anywhere else that required everyone to be a spreadsheet specialist. They live and breathe spreadsheets. Management is tied up in meetings all morning at the least and is often unapproachable.1
- 1.0Dec 28, 2015Program ManagerCurrent Contractor, less than 1 yearSacramento, CA
The CIO sends out very funny emails, there are opportunities to engage in company wide activities and they care about helping others for instance giving gifts to nursing home for Christmas.
This is the first company that I've worked for where politics, clicks and friendship are more important than the work that has to be completed. I have to work with directors and above to complete projects. From my experience they are very unethical people in management. They look down on you and make you feel inferior based on the position you have within the company. People are placed in management because of their friendships with COO, directors and or manager without any experience. Turn over is very high and no everyone looks the other way. It's an environment I would not recommend for anyone unless you do not have work directly with managers and above. They micromanage every aspect of ones workday. They are not open to hearing suggestions and using industry wide project management methodologies to run projects. They all each director to be a risk to a project at the onset of a project. I've not found one person in my department who wouldn't take another job if offered one and I've not found a person who is happy working for the company. They all seem to just put up with it because they have bills to pay.
