I worked at Kaiser Permanente as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Nice working environment if you belong to the "IN" crowd...

Cons

Management lacks technical experience. Lots of money wasted on projects that go nowhere.. Tons of offshoring and listening to unknowledgable people to determine what types of technical products to invest in. Sleep on the job and say yes to everything and you should have no problems joining the ranks of management here.. Promotions are given by social popularity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire the bottlenecks. Demand better performance from front line managers. Some are falling asleep on the job literally..

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits, wage. Hours, facilities, good training.

    Cons

    Union, queen B mentality... years of employment vs capability rule the day. Still wish I never left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at experience verses years of employment history. You are missing valuable insight.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is great, benefits great. Leading edge new technologies. Nice coworkers. Large, stable company. Strives to meet customer and employee expectations for excellence. Wonderful clinical resources that are just not available at other healthcare systems.

    Cons

    Management at my particular location are very critical, non supportive, and utilize threats & fear to motivate their staff. Culture of collaboration does not exist between staff and management. Some managers are friendly, while others are cold and hostile. Does not feel like a team environment. Most of the senior management does not respect the staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Motivation through fear and threats lowers morale and performance.Performance review should also include praise for what is done well. Staff feel more engaged when they are given opportunity to share/be included in day to day activities.Positive support and resources helps employees to learn and grow in our roles.
