    Pros

    Great doctors, great nurses, the administrators are great at the middle and most senior levels.

    Cons

    2 of the 3 senior execs were egomaniacs. Their management style was having huge impact on the organization. All they wanted was too look good. At the top level it was a mini 'game of thrones'. The new woman exec is fabulous! Let her run the show!

    Advice to Management

    The new woman exec in San Diego is fabulous! Let her run the show!

    Pros

    Great benefits, important mission, many very smart people. Strong diversity culture.

    Cons

    Leaders are a mixed bag. Some are visionary, but then there are others who have been here a long time who are indecisive and slow to move. Environment is not fast paced. Takes a lot of patience to work here.

    Pros

    Kaiser has the highest pharmacy technician pay in the field. Employer paid benefits are also a huge plus.

    Cons

    I did not enjoy working for a large company that did not care that I too had a family at home.

    Advice to Management

    Promote based on performance not favoritism.

    Pros

    great pay if you can look the other way

    Cons

    long hours, middle management manipulation games and unjust treatment for some employees while protecting others who are threats to them. poor career growth,

    Advice to Management

    there is a lot of blatant issues with compliance and policy violations that take place behind closed doors. managers aren't treating employees fairly and singling out/setting up employees they deem a threat to them or just dont plain like to fail. bad managers in middle management need to be weeded out. maybe their employees could rate them as part of the managers review to hold them accountable. there is something to be said for annual reviews which is usually given from the top down. What about conducting some from the bottom up to see what employees think about their direct reporting managers?

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits are decent with increased vacations if you are union

    Cons

    lots of issues with middle management. Although KP has been trying for years to bring in new management and hopefully address many of the issues in this area and how it affects moral, they have failed in my opinion

    Advice to Management

    while annual reviews typically are from the top down, to weed out poor performing managers who don't do justice to their respective employees, why not have employees review their managers to see how they affect their employees and help out the bad ones.

    Pros

    Terrific benefits with generous time off and a pension at retirement. Healthcare delivered at KP is the best. It's easy to access and very generous

    Cons

    Trying to get anything done with technology is an overburdening task. Other than the EMR, all their software is years behind in releases. Attempts to get anything outside the few outdated software packages they offer to employees, will only bring frustration. IT management and support is sub par.
