To big for the little employee

Nurse (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

I worked at Kaiser Permanente

ProsThe network in place to make lateral career moves as well as advancement is excellent because postings are vigilantly updated. The options for nurses are extremely diverse and nurses have an enormous potential for career growth and skill development.

ConsThe stress on personnel can be high due to patient demand. This seems to be a chronic problem. In my experience, the management does not have a positive effect on the work environment, and the affection of nurses for exceptional supervisors doesn't seem to be shared by the administration. The nationwide organization is so big that change in policy or procedure is more difficult than changing the course of the Queen Mary.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe organization could counter the suppressive effect of is corporate girth by encouraging out-of-the-box solutions and more individual discretion of the immediate supervisors. Instead of encouraging homogeneity with the "employee of the month", how about posting the "idea of the month".

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
