    Pros

    You have paid benefits for you, your children, and your family. Anything not used is given to you in your pay check. They have weeks for all their employees besides just having a nurse week. They take care of us. Great sick system, paid vacations.

    Cons

    The fact that even though almost all of Colorado has closed when it snow storms, but we still have to come outside makes me a little irritated

    Advice to Management

    I get you have a job to do, but do not micro manage. Also learn how to sympathize and have empathy when someone is going through something.

    Pros

    I enjoy working at Kaiser for 15 years, everyone helps each other to reach our goal on our daily task. Working 24 hours a week just enough for me to get what the company benefits.

    Cons

    i can't recall any downside, may be when we have back to back admissions and the time to process our admissions is hard specially if all the information you need are not available.
