    Pros

    Very worker friendly, union friendly and liberal place to work, care about the well being of the employees, as relaxed a corporate enviornment as a hospital can be. Generally skilled employees and professionals, who know how to do their jobs and are good at communicating what they need from me. Generally smart management who are good at communicating expectations and responsibilities.

    Cons

    no way to transfer easily from one site to another, I would have to interview for the job I currently have to get the same position in another site. Pay could be better but they make up for it in benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it easier to transfer. It's a big company, and that makes it hard for things to happen quickly, I'm not sure that there is a way around that but greater acknowledgement about how difficult it is to enact change might be a good idea. Overall, you guys are doing a pretty good job, you're forward thinking enough to know that we have to be thinking about new ways to deliver care if we are going to remain viable as a company. Please don't become a place that's all about profit, We are about health care! It may not be glamourous or lucrative, but it makes me proud to know that that is what we do and it's why I continue to be proud of my job and where I work.

    Pros

    6 Percent raise a year along with a 2,000 bonus and free health insurance.
    Great pay! Union is a plus for health care workers.

    Cons

    no room for career advancement,
    the union is also bad because it is hard to fire employees. no matter how well or unwell you do your job, everyone gets the same raise no matter what because of the union.
    managers favor others.
    Kaiser will not be around forever, just like the auto industry, their pension plans and retiree benefits are going to be their downfall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut benefits and pay to save money. Cancel the pension plan for all future employees as this will be the downfall of kaiser permanente.
