Pros

Pay for social workers is among the top 2 or 3. Health insurance is included. Possibility to transfer around state and US. Union is active and interested in restoring Union representation of emplyees rights.

Cons

management and above are incredibly powerful and connected to Federal Government and SEIU. NUHW broke from SEIU to represent Clinical and patient Care employees overlooked and overworked by Kaiser and SIEU in bed together. Managers are incompetent. Training is terrible. Benefits and Pay is being cut while Kaiser makes record profits with health Care Reforms.

Advice to Management

Respect Labor Management Original unity and honor and nurture this in practice.
Hire managers based on labor input and cooperation. Train employees and offer better training to Kaiser system. Computer and IT advances are rapid and need be utilized by staff to be worth the investment. Better training and social skills for MD's and providers.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    I enjoyed the work environment and the people i worked with. The benefit package is very good and the salary is good if you negotiate.

    Cons

    Communication and development of ideas between teams is slow. North and SoCal offices are not very integrated. Most people work independently.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time out of the day to meet as teams and encourage a healthy work force by encouraging walks and workout sessions.
