Pros

Communication between other departments is not perfect, but better than any other manage care health care company. The benefits are great. I truly felt well taken care of by the company. The technology used for electronic health record (health connect) is better than a regular doctor’s office that uses paper chards. Patients can electronically send in RX refills and email there doctor. Lab results are available right away. The quality of care given to our patients is great. I worked for other insurance companies and know how hard it is for patients to get the most simple of care.

Cons

Some of the staff are not motivated and are hired because they know someone in the company. That means there are several people that are not competent for the job. I know plenty of well trained people who have been turned down by Kaiser for a job. Union takes dues from your paycheck and don’t help when you need them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It’s hard to create a new position for a new specialized position because of the union. The Union generalizes the employees and puts them is positions that that don’t reflect there real job.

    Could use a little more "thrive" and a little less stress...

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent pay. Genuine motivation to provide excellent service to our members. Supportive and enjoyable community in which to work.

    Cons

    Heavy, heavy work load. Hiring freeze and heavy work load leading to unreasonable work load for existing employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that workplace safety, employee job satisfaction, and attendance can not be brought under control when department cuts cause overwhelming job responsibilities to existing employees
