Pros

Kaiser is out to make people healthy. It's great to know the work you put in is going towards making peoples' lives better.

Cons

Some of the office work away from the hospitals can be boring and routine, but when you hear the stories from the front lines, it's inspiring.

Advice to Management

Try to keep the atmosphere fun. Laughter is good medicine, too.

    Pros

    Good benefit packages for their employess. Being a Kaiser member and an employee allows for your health and medical expenses to be a lot less than those who aren't Kaiser employees.

    Cons

    Immediate supervisors and mid level management were often heartless and seem to only care about productivity these days! They don't really know how their staff can be more productive nor are they able to model how to increase productivity in the time alloted for work. It is interesting that their motto is "Thrive" because their desire to work their employess as hard as they can to increase productivity while they strongly discourage employees from requesting overtime, even if folks have to work extra hours to complete their work, is not conducive to a "thriving" work environment. It doesn't seem to really matter if it is illegal to not provide overtime pay when employees are forced to work overtime because of the nature of their job. Management strongly discourages their front line staff from requesting overtime and make you feel like something is wrong with you for not being able to be more efficient and productive with your time even though more and more is expected from you in job responsibilities and duties. It saddens and angers me to know that this non-profit HMO can push their employees this hard and get away with it and still have a billion dollar surplus at the end of the year...it is no wonder that they have this much money at the end of the year given how they aren't really paying for the countless hours employees have to work overtime without pay. If you like volunteering during your typical workday this is the place for you (I'm being sarcastic!).

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so top down in your decision-making process. Listen more to your employess and they might truly "Thrive" more. Let upper management know that your employees need to be paid for the many hours of unpaid overtime they put in so Kaiser members can indeed "Thrive." You should "have the backs" of your front line staff rather than always only selfishly caring about yourselves and doing what uper management tells you to do...stop being so spineless when it comes to tryly caring about the employess you supervise!
