I enjoyed the people as Sharp, innovative, dynamic, and committed to patient care
Director of Business Development (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – February 14, 2019
I served as Director of Business Development & Director of Operations for SCHS reporting to the Senior VP and enjoyed every minute. He allowed me to take on an independent consulting assignment at Sutter Health in Sacramento to construct a financial decision modeling tool that demonstrated the efficacy of installing a Family Practice Residency Center. An area that I was very familiar with from my administrative work at UCLA and at Glendale Adventist Medical Centers Family Practice Residency Centers. • Sharp allowed creative latitude to bring in promising business growth opportunities. I was a period of great expansion at Sharp that saw Grossmont, Coronado, and Temecula additions. My staff was talented as were cross departmental staff. We were able to develop physician practice management network, provider contracting, medical group financial models and business plans. Responsible for operations of $20 + million portfolio of wholly owned for profit subs: PMC Physicians Management Company, Rancho Family Medical Group- Temecula, Grossmont Medical Group, CSM -Center For Sports Medicine, and Sharp PSRC -Post Surgical Recovery Center.
Fast paced somewhat stressful but I enjoyed working there
Distribution Technician (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – February 7, 2019
I work well under pressure and working at sharp hospital was a very stressful place to work at times, but working with a good team it was easier. Working in a hospital I learned working together as a team anything is possible
PATIENT SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – February 6, 2019
Working as a patient service representative was one of the most rewarding and humble professional positions I've ever had. I was fortunate enough to have very close work-related relationships not only with the staff, but also with my patients. I enjoyed getting to know the patients on a first name basis and ensuring they received the care they deserved.
Solution Architect II (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – February 6, 2019
The health benefits are awesome, with 401k contributions matching. Work and live by the beach. IT consultants typical day is 9-5. Workplace culture is relaxed as soon as getting the work done. managers are super supportive, with good vacation time.
Private Pay Account Analyst (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – January 31, 2019
I worked for Sharp for many years and always thought of the organization as top notch! They invest a lot in their employees and drill the sharp experience in their heads to strive for excellent care to their patients.
Supervisor, Customer Service (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – January 29, 2019
If high stress and poor management are your thing then this is the job for you. They do a great job for the patients but a poor job treating the employess well.The problem is that uper mamagement is like a revoling door here one day and gone the next. Senior employees are gossip mongors and love nothing more then to see new employees struggle. Dont waste your time or efforts because to them you are just another number.

Unhappy working here, constantly overworked in a fast paced & stressful environment.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – January 19, 2019
Working at Sharp is unfortunately not what I expected... I've been working for Sharp as a CNA for 2+ years and, honestly, working conditions haven't really improved. I'm constantly working short staffed and yet expected to provide equal care for 16+ patients, it's impossible. Staff is often hit or miss, I work mainly with RNs and other aides(CNA, HCP, etc...). I don't get paid enough for all the work I do and my back is constantly killing me. I rarely feel appreciated and am always asked to do more. You are suppose to take breaks, but they aren't enforced and you are at fault if you don't take them. It's not that I forget to take my breaks... I DON'T HAVE THE TIME TO TAKE A BREAK! My phone is constantly ringing and I'm often too busy taking care of patients or following nurses orders to have time for a break, it sucks. I've complained to management in the past, but nothing changes. Maybe because I'm just an aide and am the lowest on the totem poll? Who knows? Sure does feel that way though. The saddest thing for me is that I actually do enjoy taking care of people. I'm always wishing I had more time to achieve the best care for my patients or to actually have the time to get to know them. I've learned so much along the way but am planing on leaving the company soon, and possibly healthcare all together honestly. The healthcare system is a total mess in its current state. Even though the blame doesn't solely fall on Sharp, it's unfortunate they don't seem to have a solution to these issues either.

Clinical Trials Compliance Manager (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – December 20, 2018
I worked for Sharp for over 25 years and was fired for no other reason than that I was at the top of my pay scale and they didn't like that .....I was just 'let go' out of the total blue, after many very productive years...This was 6 years ago and it still blows me away and it definitely deeply affected me and does to this minute..Very unjust treatment of a loyal employee that did not deserve how I was treated. I don't know how the people in power can treat employees so poorly. What they do to long time employees is not right.
Thank you for your review. We’re sorry to hear you feel you were treated unfairly during your time at Sharp. We ensure all employees are treated with equal respect and honesty throughout their career with us. We appreciate your hard work at Sharp and wish you the best of luck in the future.

Best place to work!
Public Resource Specialist/Financial Counselor (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – December 17, 2018
My work is enjoyable. The workplace culture is very diverse and goal oriented. I have learned to be a more productive employee since working at Sharp HealthCare.
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – La Mesa, CA – December 11, 2018
They disrespect staff, lean on their self-proclaimed status as the best place to work in the Universe while being one of the worst paying hospitals in SD. Upper management is for the most part, oblivious to what their employees go through. They are hostile to Unions while refusing to provide competitive pay and benefits.
Leads and lower management are generally pretty good.

Pharmaceutical Sales Rep (Former Employee) – Norristown, PA – December 8, 2018
its a really good job i had fun working there and it kept me very occupied. the hardest part about the job is trying to stay woke because i worked night shift and if the line is moving really slow then it starts to get boring.

Good and Bad
Triage RN (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – November 6, 2018
My first 5 years there were positive, due to an excellent manager, who often resisted the demands of upper management in balance with nursing needs. A management change resulted in dramatic and unwelcome changes in the department. The new manager was abusive and punitive, and was fully supported by upper management. The department was decimated, losing over 50% staff in the two years that followed. Favoritism and discrimination are now the rule, and all but a few original staff members are gone. The department continues to demonstrate an appallingly high rate of turnover and failures, all still supported by upper management.
Convenient schedule, fair benefits, UNION protection
Bad Managers are supported, high turnover, unpleasant environment
