    Pros

    Excellent care provided if you're willing to be your own advocate. Excellent benefits & pay.

    Cons

    Customer Service has taken a major downturn as KPNW insurance services are being relocated outside of Portland, OR.

    Advice to Management

    Bring insurance services back to Portland, OR as soon as possible! Talking to current members (myself included), the empathetic customer service is gone since the relocation!

    Pros

    The people at Kaiser are wonderfule to work with. Many smart, hardworking, well intentioned folks. Benefits are very good even if pay is average. Lots of time off available, but many people don't take it.

    Cons

    Hours are long, and expectations are sometimes unrealistic. Limited opportunities for management development.

    Advice to Management

    Create a leadership development program that rotates folks through different departments, especially across business and patient care areas to develop leaders who understand all facets of the business.

    There are no real cons in my opinion about this company. I would however recommend that you do your research before you sign up with the company and review the union handbooks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the great job that you guys are doing. You guys are wonderful and stop working so damn hard for us.
