    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time

    Pros

    Free benefits is great. Opportunity to rise to other jobs, regardless of where you start. Plenty of entry level positions. Kaiser also helps pay for schooling if your career is going to be with them.

    Cons

    Quality of work varies from department to department. While maintaining the highest patient satisfaction, my department has so many internal problems that it makes one wonder why they haven't quit yet. Management doesn't do much to help the situations either.

    Advice to Management

    Be harsher on employees, being a good manager doesn't necessarily mean you have to be a bad guy to your workers.


  2. "Under-experienced Managers"

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits. If you get sick during the work day, the appointment line will usually squeeze you in at your work locations so you miss less time from your desk.

    Cons

    The past 18 months or so have been rough for employees close to or over 40. Rules are changing and usually the only way you find out is getting in trouble for breaking them. I have never seen so many write-ups and firings for minor and made-up stuff in my life. The union is too amazed at the brazenness of the supervisors to offer effective help. The new management is close to or under 30 and has no interest in listening to the "old way" of doing things. They are not knowledgeable about laws governing what we do but automatically assume they know more than the "old" employees. (And they call us old, too.)

    Advice to Management

    Stop bringing in outside people or temps to fill supervisor or management positions. Stop playing games with the job postings and truly promote from within.
