    Dedicated employees treated as second class citizens, runs like a corporation.

    Pros

    The work is close to my home.

    Cons

    You are seen as just a number and they don't value the numerous years of service. Pasadena Corporate Office is the worse offenders.

    Advice to Management

    Take initiative and take action on the Annual People Pulse Surveys from employees. Any managers receiving 70% or lower scores should be diligently retrained and put with incentive to improve scores because many years of poor surveys fall on deaf years and the employees feel the survey is meaningless. Management really need to look at itself and take classes on "How to Team Build" or "Learn The Basics On How To Build Trust".

    Pros

    Great people to work with, good salary and wonderful benefits.

    Cons

    HR processes are bad! So many things to fix. Almost every process needs re-work and updating. All departments function as silos, everyone does things differently. IT support is so slow and too staffed too thin.

    Advice to Management

    You're spending way too much money on contractors when we miss out on hiring the "best of the best" because we have to let a good employee go after one year. We waste time, money, re-training....makes no sense at all. Get rid of the unions, the only purpose they serve is to keep under-performing employees employed and managers extremely frustrated that we cannot manage a poor performer out of the system quickly. It's a horrible process and is a downfall on Kaiser's part. I understand wanting to help people find a great career path, but not at the expense of dragging teams down.
