I have been working at Kaiser Permanente for more than 10 years

Pros

Improving on patient care experience.
Employee benefits.
Hourly pay rates.

Cons

Northern California and Southern California are separate entities and can belong to different nursing unions therefore pay rates do not translate from one region to the other.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A manager on the front lines of patient care, not afraid of being hands on with patients, and willing to back up their nurses is a manager who truly cares. He or she will earn their staff's respect. Presence, visibility to staff, one who is true to their words in leading by example will set the bar high where it should be.

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Wonderful company culture and the leadership believes and embraces the work life balance; it is not just talk. Many avenues to pursue once you get inside. It is a family and there are many wonderful things to work on within the scope of Kaiser Permenente. I worked in IT and it is a large comfortable campus with perks like subsidized lunch and music performances, also quality materials to work with. They are not cheap. Very reasonable, flexible and empowering of the individual.

    Cons

    I got a bad director. She just couldn't handle the managerial aspects of her newly promoted state and gave no guidance whatsoever as to regular duties or deliverables to be produced or tasks to be performed, and she never got back with requested or required input on projects or deliverables, which made it difficult to get things done. I was let go without any more information than "it just didn't work out" which is hard to swallow when you are a senior level contributor with 25 years experience. Other directors are far better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Governance, Reporting and Communications should be run by someone who actually can spell and use Word at a professional level, understands Excel and producing metric diagrams via automated applications instead of hand cut and paste and the errors prone to human interventions in reporting, and understands that governance is not just reporting on problems and golf-clapping a vendor for doing their job. Governance is in part ensuring SLA compliance and finding out and fixing what is wrong should SLAs not be met. At present, nothing is done to rectify problems from the director, the same action items remain for weeks and months and senior level leadership is forced to micro manage what should be a relatively straight forward position. Or it would be if I was allowed to implement the changes I proposed.
