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

Pros

High Pay, excellent benefits, strong union. Most people don't leave Kaiser, and if they do, they come back (or at least try to). I've only been a nurse 1 year and I make $44/hr + night differential.

Cons

They don't really train nurses in specialty areas....so say you work on a Telemetry or Medsurg floor but want to get into Labor & Delivery, well most specialty areas like Pediatrics, L&D, NICU, ICU want experienced nurses and it's hard to get a position in those departments without experience, even if you've been a nurse in a different area.

Advice to Management

More training opportunities for specialty floors.

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

    Pros

    Provides a decent benefit package; large company so they offer a variety of programs to employees; opportunities to transfer within company.

    Cons

    Raises are minimal unless in senior management; Talks a good game about wanting employees to thrive but doesn't back up in reality; managers lack basic human management skills and the enterprise doesn't care.

    Advice to Management

    Part of your job is to manage people - recognize and embrace that fact.

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

    Pros

    There is always plenty to do!

    Cons

    I've never seen such waste of time and money. Long-time entrenched executives bungle nearly everything they touch and generally hold IT accountable for the lack of leadership. In the meantime, the only success in IT is measured by cost cutting rather than exemplary stewardship.

    Advice to Management

    Get some real IT managers who can stand up to the business execs and actually partner witjh (&lead) business execs and partner to get things done rather than cut what's already been bungled.
