I have been working at Kaiser Permanente (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 have been working at Kaiser Permanente as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    A lot of upper management is willing to meet with entry level indivdiuals or interns to provide guidance and help moving up the ladder. There is also a very diverse group of individuals working here which is always nice. KP's overal mission in keeping patients healthy and happy also correlates to how they treat their employees.

    Cons

    If you want to make big changes FAST it might not happen here unless you are very high up on the ladder. At times you might want to propose a new idea but actually implementing it might take time and a lot of energy due to how bureacratic it is here. But if you are resillient and are wiling to take the time to create change it is possibel but there are a lot of loops and hurdles to go through.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more focus on the younger generation that works here. With a lot of upper management retiring, younger individuals need the right guidance and mentorship to ultimately take over their roles.
