    Pros

    Benefits are excellent. If you can "fit in", then there are many opportunities, Some pockets of brilliance and innovativeness. Medical care is excellent and often leading edge.

    Cons

    There ar cliques everywhere - and you either fit in or you are out. Mediocrity and acceptness of the norm are what get you ahead. There are meetings just to be seen and heard and not to be productive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't assume that if someone doesn't fit the "norm" for Kaiser that they are not an excellent worker with much to contribute. When there is a problem, rather than talk about it behind the team or individual's back - work with them to move forward. And finally - walk the talk - and that doesn't mean the latest management jargon/theory - it means support your staff, no double talk - just say what you mean and mean what you say. Ugly ducklings turn into beautiful swans when you give them the support that you do all the rest of the flock.

    Pros

    WAGES, Union will bat for you (only after 90 days)

    Cons

    poor training and on-boarding, sink-or-swim, not organized, will work you 9 or 10 days straight and balance it so you don't get o/t pay, every weekend and holiday as an on-call w/o so much as asking you before etching the schedule in stone, encourage employees to work double shifts that cause mistakes in pt care & testing, strict 3day/6mo sick days (they have sick emp's working with pts?), ,, sr employees are lazy, old out dated unsafe technique/skills, no dress code=facial piercings,exposed gang type tattoos and dirty t shirts/sweat pants; scary for patients, no certifications or formal training required, heartless or rushed butchers trying to draw morning labs up to 30 pts in less than 2 hrs make their Sunnyside lab a horrific place to work. It will get worse as they downsize to make room for new west hospital.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thrive motto and Labor & Management Partnership is a facade! Hire and keep employees with compassion, work ethics and current certified skills. Give your members what they deserve
