Manager (Current Employee) –  Oakland, CANovember 29, 2017
Good safe port in the storm but not a career. Tough to have faith in the low integrity management. No significant advancement possible since all management hire friends and family into leadership positions

Pay is not worth the frustration
RN (Current Employee) –  Orange County, CANovember 29, 2017
Kaiser is too big with too few quality managers to be efficient. There are too many levels of management to get any changes made in the interest of patient care in a timely manner.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Not efficient with too many levels of management

Productive and interesting work space
Medical Scribe-Assistant to a physician (Current Employee) –  Clackamas, ORNovember 29, 2017
Occasionally fast paced depending on the amount of patients seen at the Emergency Department. A typical day involves following physicians as they evaluate patients to record the patient's HPI, ROS, PE, and the physician's MDM. Hardest part of the job is probably the unusual hours. However this is mediated by the doctors who are typically easily approachable and more than happy to teach and assist.
Pros
Great experience in the medical field along side Doctors who are happy and willing to talk and teach
Cons
Unusual hours

Friendly fun place to be.
ASCC Intern (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GANovember 28, 2017
Working here, you learn how to work as a team. You become very close with your supervisors and co-workers. It feels like you've known each other for years. The atmosphere is laid back but still professional and fun. The hardest part about working there for me was the time it took for training. The most enjoyable part of the job was being surrounded by people who knew how to brighten your day, including the members that we help over the phone.
Pros
Health benefits
Cons
Back to back calls holding in queue

Avoid this Employer
Project Manager I (Former Employee) –  Pasadena, CANovember 28, 2017
This was the worst place I have ever worked!

Some departments are well run and have good people. The last department I worked in did not. Most of the people in that department behaved like they were still in junior high school. There were cliques and lots of gossiping and backstabbing. People were mistreated because they didn't dress a certain way or were of a different ethnicity. Management was aware of the culture and not only did nothing they participated in the nasty behavior. If you need accommodations for a disability, you won't get them. If you say anything to HR, you will be retaliated against and managed out. This has a very hierarchical culture which can make it very difficult to get work done on time.
Pros
Health benefits
Cons

LPN (Current Employee) –  Portland, ORNovember 28, 2017
Overall Kaiser has been great. Due to union, management tends to be crude and unresponsive to staff. Find a manager that is good to work with and fair. Benefits are great.

If I could continue to work for Kaiser Permanente I would. I have worked with the company for over seven years and have truly experienced a well balanced work and life. i have been supported in furthering my education, but with some difficulty advancing to where I would like to be.

Very poor leadership, lacking vision
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Denver, CONovember 27, 2017
Kaiser has excellent benefits, but poor leaders are promoted and there is a significant amount of cronyism at play on a daily basis. Also seems to be a lack of vision and objectives and project approaches are changed on the fly and not communicated clearly, creating an atmosphere of chaos and and environment that is almost impossible to be successful.
