Pros

The benefits are great and there are a lot of bonuses! I've been here less than a year and I've already received several cash bonuses. There's a team work environment, Kaiser gives our department matching tshirts and sweatshirts. It really feels like you're part of a team.

Cons

It's hard work. You will definitely earn your pay check. But the satisfaction you receive in doing a good job is invaluable.

    Pros

    Kaiser pay is at the top of the scale for RN's. Administrative nurses only make about 5% more than represented (union) nurses though.

    Cons

    There is a lot of politics and nepotism at Kaiser. If you get in with the right clique, the promotions and opportunities will be available for you. Also, for a Non-Profit company, Kaiser is always cutting back and pulling a profit. The Non-Profit status is more of a Tax strategy rather than mission to provide low cost care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be less adversarial with the Nurses Union. Abide by the Collective Bargaining agreement right off the bat instead of trying to impose your will and test employees to see if they will contact their union rep. More transparency will lend to a better working relationship.

    Their orientation presented a wonderful company to work for, but my actual work place was quite different.

    Pros

    Pay, benefits and some of your co-workers will have a professional helpful attitude while you are learning your job. Most of my co-workers were helpful when I asked.

    Cons

    The department where I was assigned had poor internal customer service by front line managerial staff in reference to their employees (their external customer service to patients was usually excellent). A couple practiced passive-aggressive career sabotage and false accusations to cause several employees to quit or be fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dealing with sick patients is a fluid situation that requires focus from every front line employee. They must have their minds clear to consider their vast medical knowledge and how to safely help the patient. Because the distraction of workplace bullying compromises patient care and employee health, eventually no one will want to work in the department.
