Great benefits & Pay, stressful environment
Pharmacy Assistant (Former Employee), Thousand Oaks, CAAugust 7, 2015
Most people stay at Kaiser due to the benefits and pay. The management, bureaucracy, and work culture sucks. There is poor communication across departments and lazy work culture due to unionization.

Sylvan
Health Information Management Specialist (Current Employee), Antioch, CAAugust 7, 2015
I loved working at Sylvan. I started as a student and was hired on part time. I was able to work with children while advancing my education in high school.I continued to work with them in college and enjoyed my time and experience with them. They were a family oriented company that helped students as well as their employees.

Senior Staff Accountant (Former Employee), Pasadena, CAAugust 6, 2015
TOO many changes too often.
Jobs aren't stable and management sucks, will not go to "bat" on your behalf and some don't now what their doing. Got into management by "KISSING"

Really nice place to learn
Student Extern (Former Employee), Portland, ORAugust 6, 2015
Pros: Free lunch, supportive staff, amazing team work
Cons: lots of red tape for a student
Enjoyed working here as part of education. I learned a lot about how a doctor's office functioned for a large provider like Kaiser. Lots of unique patients and care staff were around everyday. The team work aspect of the medical assistants was amazing, everyone was willing to help each other out and make sure things were covered. Many members of the care staff were active in their local union.

Excessive Bureaucracy
STERILE PROCESSING MANAGER (Current Employee), CAAugust 3, 2015
Pros: Unionized
Cons: Not the best of employers you could fine.
Kaiser says "own it" but don't you dare owning it. You would regret it. I have been celebrated as an outstanding manager who did great things for Kaiser to grow, but later treated horribly because I have intellectual property with other businesses that do business with Kaiser - even though that was disclosed and deemed no conflict of interest by Kaiser. In short, Kaiser isn't what it claims to be and no where close to what you think.
That said; there are many good and hardworking people working for Kaiser. They are not the issue, Kaiser is.

Stressful busy job
Service Representative (Former Employee), San Diego,CAAugust 3, 2015
8AM to 5PM except for an 1 hour lunch and two 15 minute breaks, almost non stop dealing with patients, majority of whom were sick or in pain. Very stressful emotionally draining job. Co-workers were very pleasant to work with. I had a good relationship with my immediate supervisor partially because I've been acquainted with her for 20+ years prior to her becoming my supervisor.

Challenging and Noble Cause
Director (Current Employee), Pleasanton, CAAugust 2, 2015
Pros: Challenging, Changing, Large opportunities, great compensation
Cons: Highly bureaucratic, demanding
Kaiser is a fantastic environment to advance skills in technology and management. The culture in IT jobs can be fun but requires a high degree of building relationships. Large IT organizations, like Kaiser's have many challenges in aligning the business objectives with advancing technology. This requires constant evolution on the organization to align or readjust to the needs of the business. Kaiser is no different than most and does a good job in rewarding those who can drive forward while partnering with others. The most success is found in those who manage or embrace a more egoless approach and strive to influence for the greater benefit to Kaiser.
