    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    good pay and benefits. Most facilities are modern.

    Cons

    Local leadership is a problem. They lack the skill to form and maintain good teams, provide vague direction and then complain about the results. Local leadership often provides no feedback until there is a problem. Positive advice and feedback is frequently lacking.
    They have adopted a strategy of splitting certain positions between facilities, which sounds good and looks good on paper, but in practice it is disruptive and inefficient. Other problems are lazy and uncooperative staff nurses who have huge entitlement issues. Local management lacks the skill to manage these difficult cases, so they drag everyone down.

    Advice to Management

    Get some leaders for the local facilities. Remember, managers are not necessarily leaders. Although we all know no one is indispensable, please don't treat people like one nurse is as good as another. Have some respect for the workers who do a good job. Stop pretending everyone is devoted to high quality when it is obvious that this isn't the case.
