Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good salary, great colleagues, stable employment, union protection

Cons

Management trying to significantly reduce benefits, even in a time of record profits, computer systems are outmoded and too complex, top down management, no consideration for employee input. Kaiser is now all about perceived quality, not real service

Advice to Management

Start talking to the folks who actually provide clinical care. Their experience is much different than what you think.
