Pros

Salary, benefits, strives for excellence while remaining competitive in a tough market.

Cons

Budget cuts, economy, unemployment are effecting Kaiser just like they are effecting other healthcare organizations. Becoming a huge corporation and very micromanaged.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your middle management too and empower them to be leaders. Don't forget humans are unique and we have brains, experience, and talent to be leaders, not just micro managed. To a degree it is good to be regionally minded but still let our ideas and creativity show through. We do need to continue working on being effective, keeping costs down, and providing the best and safest care.

    Pros

    Kaiser's emphasis on healthy lifestyles, customer service, and the salary/benefits packages make this the only employer I was interested in pursuing after graduation. In my department, the staff and management get along well, and for the most part enjoy working together. It makes going to work pleasdant when you feel like you are working with friends.

    Cons

    Not all units are lucky enough to feel supported by management. Sometimes the same union rules that ensure fairness are not flexible enough. Decision about time off have to be made very far in advance and last minutes changes can be difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire middle managers that have an appropriate blend of competence, intelligence, and likeability. They are out there. Hire them. If they are already hired, and they are no longer respected by their staff, require changes or get rid of them. No nursing unit will ever be cohesive without staff respecting their supervisors.
