    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The people I worked with were very pleasant and mostly competent, the health care benefits were very generous, vacation was very generous, and my boss was wonderful

    Cons

    Many of the people at Kaiser are lifers who seem to just be putting in the time. In my department, there were a number of completely incompetent people who who made the workloads for the rest of us much bigger. Also, Kaiser is overly PC and overly concerned about diversity.

    Advice to Management

    Reward excellence instead of longevity. Kaiser has a lot of unions, and even the non-union parts of the company seem like a union because excellence gets you nowhere.

    Pros

    Electronic health records and medical delivery system is far superior than any other insurance carrier/medical provider and KP has set the benchmark. Online capabilities for members is amazing.

    Cons

    Unions are problematic, union employees have little to no incentive to get things done in a timely fashion, nor do they work outside their set list of duties. Rarely do they go above and beyond. Computer system on administrative side is archiach and needs a complete overhaul.

    Advice to Management

    Invest some profits in the administrative computer system. Develop systems that integrate and can upload, download, import, export, etc... The lack of system integration between departments is ridiculously inefficient and wastes time and money.
