Pros

Most people who work at KP care very much about our members and the care that they receive. Most are intelligent and hard working. In general, most are also very friendly. Great colleagues and new friends!

Cons

In the area where I work there is a key leader whose behavior is sub-optimal for the position they hold. They are intelligent and devoted, member focused, but do not treat staff with appropriate dignity and respect.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have a better review system of the Director level positions so that a better assessment on their behavior can be made by subordinates.

    Pros

    Adequate pay. Excellent benefits. Good location for freeway access and local stores. Pharmacy is efficient. Medical records and doctors visits are accessible via internet.

    Cons

    Profit driven decision making compromises patient care. Nurses given higher acuity of patients than is safe and practical. Equipment is often lacking or non-functional. Top-heavy management style is disconnected from realities of patient care and challenges to nursing staff. Nurses forced to miss breaks and stay overtime to complete heavy workload and deliver adequate patient care. Hospital understaffs units to meet budget objectives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make patient safety first-if this is addressed work conditions for nurses and other staff will improve. This hospital aspires to be a "world class" medical facility-this can only be accomplished by smart management that is responsive to nursing feedback.

    Pros

    Great benefits and good work life balance. Interesting projects to work on but very difficult to mobilize senior leadership to support initiatives.

    Cons

    Much of the management and leadership needs to retire, which is expected in the next 7-10 years. Once Kaiser has some more effective individuals running the organization, it might be a worthwile place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kaiser should work to incorporate 360 reviews into the performance management process and have this be tied to incentive / compensation plans.
