I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Work life balance is for the most part ok.

Cons

You can not do anything without checking through layers of management. If you think outside the box, work somewhere else.

Advice to Management

Give people some autonomy and let them make their own decisions.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente (More than a year)

    Pros

    WAGES, Union will bat for you (only after 90 days)

    Cons

    poor training and on-boarding, sink-or-swim, not organized, will work you 9 or 10 days straight and balance it so you don't get o/t pay, every weekend and holiday as an on-call w/o so much as asking you before etching the schedule in stone, encourage employees to work double shifts that cause mistakes in pt care & testing, strict 3day/6mo sick days (they have sick emp's working with pts?), ,, sr employees are lazy, old out dated unsafe technique/skills, no dress code=facial piercings,exposed gang type tattoos and dirty t shirts/sweat pants; scary for patients, no certifications or formal training required, heartless or rushed butchers trying to draw morning labs up to 30 pts in less than 2 hrs make their Sunnyside lab a horrific place to work. It will get worse as they downsize to make room for new west hospital.

    Advice to Management

    Thrive motto and Labor & Management Partnership is a facade! Hire and keep employees with compassion, work ethics and current certified skills. Give your members what they deserve
