    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Busy. Always something to do. Union UHW pay is good.

    Cons

    Poor management = coworker bullying, short staffed most days, work flow is beyond what one single person can do mentally then management will write you up if you mess up due to heavy work load. This is at Irvine facility. If you complain then management targets you. Union does not help you. So if you can handle hostile work environments then this Irvine Kaiser maybe the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Care about how to manage people...If your going to retaliate due to complaints of bullying and work flow issues then go back to school or quit. Your the management team your in place to manage people and help a smooth running shift to be above the call/to excel in healthcare, not hate on them/employees because they come to you for help and you dont want or care to do your job.

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for working on innovative and interesting projects
    Great connection to the end goal of helping patients and making their care better and/or more efficient
    Lots of good people to work
    Exposure to new technology and ideas
    Awesome Benefits

    Cons

    Problem Co-workers are not usually dealt with appropriately
    Work/Life balance policies (flexible schedule, work from home, etc) are inconsistent across departments and technology infrastructure is lacking.
    Management has hard time with strategic vision and often lurches from one priority to the next.
    Lots of Politics and Bureaucracy

    Advice to Management

    The strategic vision needs to start at the top and be followed through down the line. There is an effort to streamline middle management, and while I get it, often the middle managers are over worked with too much on their plate and it ends up effecting their reports morale.
