I have been working at Kaiser Permanente as an intern

Pros

Friendly environment and the management really invested into the interns.

Cons

Other interns had managers that were too busy to give them work, but mine was great! They should probably implement a way to monitor the value of the internship program to both parties (the intern and the company).

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Can find your niche of supportive professionals in various departments in time. HMO is proactive in preventative care.

    Cons

    HMO= requires daily battles to advocate for patients. Profit is an overly motivating factor vs. what is best for patient. The only one thriving is the company/CEO. The Nursing profession itself is a losing proposition- all the liability & responsibility with no power to change your practice. Little autonomy. Little support from peers. "Helping profession" = not uncommon to draw dysfunctional people. Leadership not rewarded. Unions are only good for wage standard & overall ratio protection. Don't expect support in the bad games played.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your professionals. In an entire 20+ year career in this field, I only ever had 2 good managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to those who actually work in your frontline, clinical, important healthcare positions. HR department is inept and completely out of touch with those of us who actually work in healthcare. Your Medical Office Administrators are given more power than those who supervisor departments. Some of us feel as if we have multiple supervisors. Those who are in meetings all week, at the computer and detached from the action cannot fully know what's going on in your company. We are exhausted and feel like the sparingly given "pat on the back" is merely lip service. We are not thriving in the healthcare positions that make your company what it is. The constant knit picking, computer based training, etc. that never seems to end along with all the everchanging paperwork makes for a worn out workforce.
