Pros: lots if your not a temp
Cons: Temporary worker, working against union lots of really snobby permanent employees.
I've been a temp for a while and absolutely love MY job! My direct supervisor is great but upper management, like most large corporations have no clue what is going on the "front lines" often implementing procedures that make no sense. Kaiser is ran very militant and most departments are micromanaged. They are very unorganized and it's an every man for themselves type of environment. You are working with tons of union employees who have been there for 25 years + who are lazy, well paid, rude and don't have to do their jobs because they are protected by the union. I came to Kaiser with the best of attitudes, thinking becoming a temp would get my foot in the door to become permanent. I hate to have such a poor attitude but after a while its hard to get optimistic. I love working with the members and you get to meet lots of really cool people.
