    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The benefits are great and there are a lot of bonuses! I've been here less than a year and I've already received several cash bonuses. There's a team work environment, Kaiser gives our department matching tshirts and sweatshirts. It really feels like you're part of a team.

    Cons

    It's hard work. You will definitely earn your pay check. But the satisfaction you receive in doing a good job is invaluable.

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Kaiser pay is at the top of the scale for RN's. Administrative nurses only make about 5% more than represented (union) nurses though.

    Cons

    There is a lot of politics and nepotism at Kaiser. If you get in with the right clique, the promotions and opportunities will be available for you. Also, for a Non-Profit company, Kaiser is always cutting back and pulling a profit. The Non-Profit status is more of a Tax strategy rather than mission to provide low cost care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be less adversarial with the Nurses Union. Abide by the Collective Bargaining agreement right off the bat instead of trying to impose your will and test employees to see if they will contact their union rep. More transparency will lend to a better working relationship.
