    Upper management asks the impossible. Middle management refuses to stand up for themselves and explain why things can't be done.

    I have been working at Sutter Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    By far some of the most wonderful people I've worked with at the middle and frontline level. Meaningful work for someone not from healthcare originally. Good pay, amazing benefits, good PTO/leave, paid conferences, tuition reimb. I get the impression that clinicians have had it better at Kaiser/UCSF/Stanford but as someone from outside the industry free insurance is a godsend.

    Cons

    Bad HR processes, tough to get promoted, especially since you have to apply internally even if you're just moving locations. Sick/PTO time is one bank. Upper management seems out of touch with what actually goes on in the workplace, too focused on results and "culture" nonsense to care, short-sighted. The healthcare industry seems like it lives in feast or famine, currently in famine so micro-layoffs of staff, which is the wrong and easy way out is a key strategy and you wonder why unions happen? Feels like pushing a glacier to change things, very conservative organization when it comes to regulations, a bit demoralizing when you see the bad processes workers have to put up with to get their job done, same with overburdened middle managers.

    I have been working at Sutter Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They started out great, until they started expanding at a ridiculous rate.

    Cons

    I started at Sutter when it was only the Murray location and as it started to expand it went downhill. The more they grew, the less the cared for their employees. Quality went downhill when serving the patients due to their constant changes and demands. I get there are going to be changes, but when you're constantly being told to make several changes in a week and then expected to maintain your scores so you can get your bonuses, it was ridiculous. Employee morale went downhill and upper management was a joke. No connection with employees whatsoever. After 5 years with this company, I was happy to say goodbye.

    Pros

    * MMC provides excellent compensation. * Departments work together as a team even with limited resources. *Charting system MMC uses is up to date and easy to use.

    Cons

    * Limited resources when patient acuity is high. * Needs more staff in departments. * Upper management adds new changes every week to nursing interventions. Causing a stressful environment, especially when ratios are high.
