Current Employee - Registered Nurse

I have been working at Kaiser Permanente part-time for more than 10 years

Pros

High quality company with high standards of care and protection for workers. No other company provides employees with such great pay and amazing benefits. There are also many ways Kaiser can help... facilitate career progression if that is your goal.

Cons

Depending on your job you will work without flexibility every other weekend unless you request a vacation day.

Advice to Management

Manager close to staff have always been great for me. I cannot speak as well to senior management, although, at times it seems their decisions are based from 'afar' or purely on numbers.

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at US Department of Veterans Affairs full-time for less than a year

Pros

Supporting the Veteran experience is an honor. I come home each day feeling accomplished.

Cons

It can be difficult to maneuver through the various obstacles that present itself when working within a structured chain of command in an a government agency with over 400,000 employees. But those... difficulties can be overcome by intra and inter-office networking. Everyone has the same mission to support the Veteran experience, so it’s just a matter of working together to do so.
