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

    Pros

    High quality company with high standards of care and protection for workers. No other company provides employees with such great pay and amazing benefits. There are also many ways Kaiser can help facilitate career progression if that is your goal.

    Cons

    Depending on your job you will work without flexibility every other weekend unless you request a vacation day.

    Advice to Management

    Manager close to staff have always been great for me. I cannot speak as well to senior management, although, at times it seems their decisions are based from 'afar' or purely on numbers.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are outstanding and the doctors work for the hospital, so they are obligated to treat you with respect. Kaiser doesn’t allow shenanigans. They have great benefits and help you with your schooling. There are pros and cons to being in a union.

    Cons

    Kaiser doesn’t allow shenanigans, they are clicky and too politically correct. There’s a snitch mentality and people are unlikely to tell problems to your face.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent as you say you are. Don’t be passive aggressive. Don’t take what anybody complains to you about at face value and ask questions, including asking the individual named. People lie, people get jealous and judgement thrown without due process is wrong.
