Pros

pay scale for staff rn decent, exciting changes being made to accomodate more Kaiser patients. Leadership that involved with direct patient care are supportive in what can be a difficult political situation with budget cuts.

Cons

they take advantage that this economy makes it hard for people to leave. Directors are insensitive to demands made in what seems to be mean spirited at times.Parking is a disaster. Unrealistic expectation and poor coordination of mandatory inservices and meetings.

Advice to Management

Remember what if feels like to be powerless. HONEST reasons regarding why difficult decisions are made. We lose respect when hidden agendas are revealed. Hiding behind etiquet keeps you from looking real. Give an answer to the grumbling ...learn the value of a quality explanation. If you listen to the people at the low end you would be surprised at the cost savings that could be realized. They see more waste because literally they are the ones throwing things away. You give great care to customers but employees are also your consumers and have brains, hearts etc.
