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.

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente

    Pros

    Great pay. Benefits. Overall great to their staff. Free lunches, traininge, and contests. Company is involved in making employees happy.

    Cons

    Difficult part is seeing how some patients are treated. Not all patients are receiving the care and preventative screening that they deserve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to figure out a way around the union. Job hours,pay and time off should be awarded to good employees- not you seniority.
