    It's a pleasure to work in a cohesive environment where there is a friendly 'team' of employees who are appreciated!

    Pros

    We are all customer oriented and know our goal is to give the member a great impression of how healthcare should be.

    Cons

    It's hard because I am a newbie and there is a seniority chain that may be unsettling when changes occur. Can't be settled at one location.

    Advice to Management

    Remember we make you look good, we are on the front lines so listen to our suggestions and respect our opinions.

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente as a contractor

    Pros

    It's a great company to work for. They have many positive things like healthy lifestyle and they don't over work you either.

    Cons

    The only problem is that if you're a contractor, it will take years to get hired as a full time employee.

    Advice to Management

    Management should hire worthy employees as a full time rather than hiring from within the company candidates that may not have a good experience.

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great program lasting 10 weeks. Got to rotate between departments and exposure to physicians, nurses, and patients; some were great mentors

    Cons

    More of a shadowing experience than hands-on work; can get a bit mundane

    Pros

    - Largest Not for Profit in the US
    - Rich history of pro-employee practices, working environment and culture
    - Decent pay with excellent benefits
    - A company mission you can really stand behind
    - Medical Offices and Regional buildings in GA, the DC Metro Area, CO, CA, OR, WA, HI - giving some types of positions the ability to move within the company easily.

    Cons

    - Kaiser is several legal entities, which are not as fluid and aligned as they should be - both for members as well as for employees.

    Pros

    Kaiser invests in its people. They encourage employee development through Individual Development Plans to focus on an employees ambitions and invests in the individuals that want to seek out opportunities. They are family oriented, offer amazing benefits and you feel good working for a nonprofit that actually gives back billions of dollars to the communities it serves. I've been with Kaiser for almost 23 years and I look forward to another 25.

    Cons

    I have no cons to offer.

    Pros

    Happy LVN with Kaiser Inglewood for 10yrs. We have awesome leadership. I've been an LVN for 15 yrs. If you've worked outside of Kaiser then you know how wonderful it is to work for a corporation like this. I feel appreciated.

    Cons

    Having to change your RIS password and not using the last 10 ......lol

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing an excellent job. You were placed in the position your in for a reason. Remember where you started from. Remember to take breaks and put your feet in the grass.......

    Pros

    Best nursing job I have had! Also, as a breastfeeding mom tons of support for pumping including a room and breast pump provided. If I let the house supervisor or manager know I'm feeling unsafe they (usually) provide extra support.

    Cons

    Chemotherapy ratios are not safe. Sometimes the DRs don't communicate. Not many opportunities for RNs to train for new areas/specialty nursing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Remember, most of the nurses really are there because we care. Thanks for your support.

    Pros

    I have only worked for Kaiser since March 2012 and it has been a wonderful job, I work from home which is incredible and the pay is 3 times what I was making doing the same job elsewhere and the benefits alone are fantastic

    Cons

    No cons that I can think of......wish I had started with Kaiser at the start of my 20 yr career in the medical field.

    Advice to Management

    my advice would just be to continue learning about employees and who they are not only at work but also as a person with many attributes to better Kaiser.
