      Pros

      Out of need people work there and cannot leave their jobs

      Cons

      Management is unprofessional, unethical and practices dictatorship. Abusive, intimidating environment. Toxic place to work in. Richard pushes staff into a corner and forces them to resign by harassing and humiliating staff. They change policies whenever they please. For being late one minute full 15 minutes is deducted from vacation. Razi has affairs with other women though married yet tries to touch woman staff and looks down their blouses, tries to bed female mortgage agents. They have no compassion for female staff , single females or single mothers and are ruthless in their behavior. They don't follow labor laws or human rights laws. They are misers pay is below market average for all positions and find new ways not to pay out commission to staff that are partly commissioned. They have asked staff members who help mortgage agents if next they would suck ***** to help them out. They ask staff to work for free or in your own time , never pay overtime. They keep adding tasks and workload and putting staff down saying they are useless ,lazy and cannot achieve anything . Everyday the pattern of work changes. Richard micro manages to the point where reminders have to be written in his words. Do not give annual raises , cancelled all benefits, no bonuses are paid. Razi lets Richard take 5 weeks vacation and unlimited sick days but other staff members cannot take 2 days vacation in a row. To leave 4 weeks notice has to be provided but if they find a replacement they show cause and fire you. They never speak anything good about any ex or existing employee. Zubair the principal broker was harrassed for leaving 10 minutes before during a snow storm and resigned from his staff position only does some training and works as a mentor and principal broker on paper. Razi and Richard leave 3 hours before in a snow storm but dont let staff leave . They watch staff members through cameras and do not let anybody talk to each other, dictates through cameras. Nobody calls labor board as they threaten all staff members with dire consequences even on a personal level. All in all avoid working in this company by all means.

      Pros

      I have nothing to say good about this company. It treats the employees terrible. The surgeons are great though. No work life balance

      Cons

      They treat good employees like crap. If you aren't in the "in" click you fear for your job. I saw fantastic center managers with high producing centers get fired so one of the click could manage. Saw it too many time. I wanted no part of this type of environment

      Pros

      - seeing patient progress - coworkers feel like family - even though you do the same routine every day, each day is always exciting - off on sat/sun - company incentives are nice - great experience for new grads or if you're a nurse looking to see the happy side of nursing - food in break room

      Cons

      - sucks when short staffed, but that's everywhere - not always a set schedule, cant get off on time if you're still in surgery

      Pros

      Sonobello is a great place to work. The Sacramento location is a fast paced high volume office that transforms lifestyles each day. The doctors and staff have a strong sense of pride in helping each patient achieve their goals. Management is extremely supportive and flexible with work life balance as well as supportive during the COVID changes in 2020-2021. Sonobello provides staff appreciation on a constant basis to ensure hard work is rewarded. This office also provides entry level nursing staff the opportunity to gain specialty and surgical knowledge and continuing education. Overall working here was a joy and they were my second family. If I lived closer to them then I would have never left :-)

      Cons

      Wish the location was closer to my home and less of a commute.
