    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is good in general for RNs because KP only uses a few CNAs as runners....(but they don't really help the RNs with VS and always seem to be "busy" or nowhere to be found when you need them !!

    Cons

    No help, no teamwork, no CNAs only runners, KP is only preoccupied with their profit, KP doesn't care about their staff and their patients, understaffed most of the time, favoritism with CN, managers have no clue about what is going on in their own unit (depends on the unit), people are talking in their foreign native tongue on the units, different unions in different units.....some still bargaining a contract after two years, KP wants to cut its only pension plan for RNs, staff (RTs, some RNs who get better assignments than others are on the Internet all night and don't help others who are running around), most RTs don't even suction the patients and do the minimum, the supply rooms are not well supplied and some supplies are put in the wrong places all the time, some supervisors are biased, not multiethnic but mostly Phillippino,, stressful, always busy, too much to chart and not enough time to spend with the patients, charge nurses are treated much better (favoritism) no matter what mistake they do, good nurses are not rewarded but are actually depreciated, etc....

    Advice to Management

    Management should be attuned to their staff and unit and seek constructive criticism. Management should take care of their unit and improve it by listening to their staff members who usually know better than them what is going on. Management should use positive reinforcement rather than project a negative disciplinarian image to their adult staff....!!
