Pros

Good industry to work in under the current economic situation, although possible government cutbacks to Medicare will have a large impact to Kaiser's bottom line.

Excellent benefits, decent pay scale on the higher end of competition. Very profitable company (although it's considered non-profit), has deep pockets.

Cons

Clear difference between union and non-union employees.

Union employees are "lifers" - they do not leave until they retire. Conversely, the non-union professional staff seem to have a high turnover, at least the groups I've been working with. This may be due to the fact that many of them are contract-based employees.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente

    Pros

    Pay for social workers is among the top 2 or 3. Health insurance is included. Possibility to transfer around state and US. Union is active and interested in restoring Union representation of emplyees rights.

    Cons

    management and above are incredibly powerful and connected to Federal Government and SEIU. NUHW broke from SEIU to represent Clinical and patient Care employees overlooked and overworked by Kaiser and SIEU in bed together. Managers are incompetent. Training is terrible. Benefits and Pay is being cut while Kaiser makes record profits with health Care Reforms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect Labor Management Original unity and honor and nurture this in practice.
    Hire managers based on labor input and cooperation. Train employees and offer better training to Kaiser system. Computer and IT advances are rapid and need be utilized by staff to be worth the investment. Better training and social skills for MD's and providers.
