Pros

Kaiser does try to promote a diverse working environment. They also promote choices for their staff's over all health. They provide locations for their members for better access to Providers and health services and their salary and health care packages are very competitive.

Cons

Kaiser tends to have very stressful work environments. And they don't always live up to their commitment to staff goals. On occasion, their supervising staff is not in sync with the over all goals of the licensed staff of the departments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take the time to listen to the staff that has direct care responsibility with the patients. And be more flexible with staff work flow.

    Pros

    IT feeds on Kaiser Permanente's progressive image of leadership in Health Care and sees themselves as enablers.

    Cons

    IT fails to realize a strategy that delivers, they remain decades behind in internal processes, red tape's abound.
    Describes their IT staff as “commodity” workers doing “commodity” work.
    Their staff is demoralized, any strategy is accidental; the ship's captain has no clue.
    Largest implementation of ERP run by people with zero knowledge of what they manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your fat layers of management and lack of knowledge is driving cost of healthcare up.

    Too many meetings, accountability in certain areas lacking, top producers rewarded with more work, almost unmanageable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cultivate teams and individuals with exposure to industry based seminars and educational opportunities. Break silos.
