Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Oakland, CA
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Oakland, CA
No opinion of CEO

Pros

the benefits package is amazing if you can make it to retirement age
many of the colleagues are wonderful to work with

Cons

the hours worked that are not compensated and having to deal with management that treats you like a cog in a wheel; to do the job even if your private life suffers; the lack of flexibility

Advice to Management

one of the reasons that companies like Google do so well with their employees is that they listen and try to accomodate; you need to treat employees as part of the team and not as the help

    Current Employee - Psychiatric Social Worker in Hayward, CA
    Current Employee - Psychiatric Social Worker in Hayward, CA
    No opinion of CEO

    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.
