I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Work life Balance
Large enough to move within the organization
Some groups offer telecommuting
Extensive Training opportunities

Cons

Hard to navigate because of size of organization
Can get "lost" in the crowd
Career Growth can be slow
Very hard for "outsiders" applying to get a job, need to have an internal source to get a job

Advice to Management

Improve Communication Skills for employees telecommuting. Many resources have trouble navigating in a virtual work environment.

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Kaiser pay is at the top of the scale for RN's. Administrative nurses only make about 5% more than represented (union) nurses though.

    Cons

    There is a lot of politics and nepotism at Kaiser. If you get in with the right clique, the promotions and opportunities will be available for you. Also, for a Non-Profit company, Kaiser is always cutting back and pulling a profit. The Non-Profit status is more of a Tax strategy rather than mission to provide low cost care.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be less adversarial with the Nurses Union. Abide by the Collective Bargaining agreement right off the bat instead of trying to impose your will and test employees to see if they will contact their union rep. More transparency will lend to a better working relationship.
