Good place to work

The unit is great, lots of support and great benefits. I have never once felt unsafe or overwhelmed. Even though it’s not unionized we still have to keep up with the other unions

Better then previous jobs

Great benefits, and a great place to work. Base Pay is good as well. They meet the cost of living. Started at 29 per hour now at 32 per hour, sometimes there are multiple call outs having to take on extra work , but the pay is really good just can get over worked

Worst toxic job environment in california

A typical day at work includes embarrassment and degradation. You learn nothing on the job. And the management creates a workplace culture that is toxic and hurtful. The hardest part of the job is having to work with people who are trying to get you fired all day. My most enjoyable part of the job is when I left.


There are no pros to this job

too much politics

No equal treatment in some department with high politics. You have to be pleaser to be favored. Some people in charge are too personal if they do not like you. The communication in mid management are poor. Benefits are great including with the family health insurance. If you are willing to suck up the politics and do not care, place is ok to be at.


great insurance benifits

Good place for new grads to learn

Union hospital means pay scales are laid out and set in stone. In my experience on a telemetry unit, PM shifts are the busiest, nights are easier but with less staffing too though not too bad. You still have resources and staff helps each other out. Parking is easier at night, horrible during the day/evening.

Overall great

Great place to start being a nurse. Floor I work on has great team work. Type of patients can vary, can be good or bad. Schedule is made and usually given to your preference

Productive and organized place to work

Great benefits and work culture. Fair pair with a fair amount of work. Leadership is pretty solid, and training is provided, the best part is the work culture.

Very good place to work

Benefits and salary are good. Staff are great. Only cons is sometimes I am called off from work or being flexed. Census is sometimes low, and cutting staff early on, then admission comes later on the shift then it becomes understaffed.

Mass Leadership Exodus has Changed SH for the worst

I used to love working for Sutter. I'm in admin, but still felt like part of the cause and connected to SH's mission. Covid and the financial impacts of it changed the company. So many executives left, so many leaders left, just so many people left, and they were replaced with ... anyone who would take the job or no one. People were and are asked to do more and more for the same amount of pay. People have had benefits change unfavorably. I'm waiting for them to start charging us for health insurance again as a cost saving measure. After spending years consolidating from 5 to 2 operating units, they recently decided to go back to 5 different markets structurally. When you have leaders come and go like Sutter has, your employees get tossed around like a doll sometimes. I used to love Sutter. Now, it feels like it's circling the drain. HOWEVER, there are plenty of people on the clinical side that still love it. If you're a union worker, you'll probably be good. Either way, your personal experience will likely depend on your manager and the culture they create.

Fun workplace with room to grow

I absolutely loved working at Sutter. My manager was amazing and he always gave me opportunities to grow. Sometimes you can get rude patients on the phone but during your trainings they teach you how to appropriately handle those calls. I wish the pay could be better as well as them being more understanding with childcare. I was told find childcare or we have to let you go. I was informed the total opposite when I got pregnant so it was frustrating but overall it was a fun place to work! My last 6 months wasn’t the greatest due to me moving up and being under new management but I still was able to get tons of experience in!


Growth, great management, long breaks


Rude patients, some rude coworkers

Nice place to work and learn

Great place to work. Worked in tele unit. The work culture is great. Great team work. Typical day at the unit is very busy, but team work was great. The hardest part is when everyone is busy, you may feel like drowning.

Working as a security guard at Sutter Health CPMC was okay. Supportive colleagues, stable environment, but low pay and demanding shifts.

Good pay, co-workers are amicable

This a great place to work with good pay and benefits. It’s an atmosphere that accepts and promotes new ideas, different cultures etc. Working anywhere in San Francisco some people are friendlier than others. Professional atmosphere.

Good benefits

Good benefits some toxic people in the quality department. Pay was not that great, no room for advancement with that position. Definitely would reapply for a different position.

Worst place to work

The environment was extremely toxic and nothing was done about it. Coworkers were very rude towards each other. Certain coworkers would constantly try and get others they didn’t like in trouble. The team never worked together and there was constant tension. I was actually called stupid by a fellow coworker. Benefits were not that great compared to other companies. Save yourself and go elsewhere
