Kaiser is a great place to work

Staff Nurse II (Current Employee)
Hayward, CA

ProsKaiser'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.

ConsNot 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 Senior ManagementHire 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
