Assistant Department Manager (Current Employee) – Baldwin Park, CA – October 20, 2015
Trying to motivate a stagnant culture. To influence them to want to do more. The employees are union protected, thus making it impossible to discipline via corrective action and require nurses to seek to improve their skills
Customer Service, CPR, ECG, Patient (Former Employee) – Walnut Creek, CA – October 19, 2015
Kaiser has, thus far, been the absolute best employer to me. Everything from compensation to employee training programs as proven to be a cut above the rest. It is my goal to earn a top position at Kaiser, and give back to the company what it has given to me.
Staff Nurse II (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – October 19, 2015
Very fast paced environment, with frequent interruptions and distractions. Support staff mostly excellent but a few that can make a nurse's day very difficult. Most management very supportive. Training done very quickly with little time to practice new knowledge.
RN, Medical-Surgical/Oncology/Emergency (Current Employee) – Fresno,ca – October 19, 2015
My co-workers are very dedicated to the nursing profession and are considered team players when we are at work. Very Professional but also able to have a sense of humor. This is a great environment to grow as a nurse. My co workers are a great group of people steady building and motivating each other. We work on the same goals day in and out to provide efficient patient care.
Cardiac Monitor Technician (Former Employee) – Clackamas, OR – October 18, 2015
I sat watching the heart monitors for 12 hours per day. It was easier working with the older employees than the younger employees. With being a small group of employees you needed to watch what you say because there was a lot of back stabbing. Management was okay, typical of hospitals. The company itself was a pretty decent employer with really good benefits. Nursing staff was great to work with, and would recommend Kaiser to anyone looking for a nursing position.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – October 15, 2015
This was volunteer work that I did with my aunt who works at Kaiser Permanente. I joined in on their project to help a local school near the hospital. We split into groups and one group painted a mural while the other covered up a fence for privacy. I was a part of the group that covered up the gate and everyone was very friendly and we all helped each other. When we finished, we helped the painters out.
Imaging Scheduler (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 15, 2015
I enjoyed working for this company. They offered a variety of programs for their employee. The office management provided useful learning tools to make the job easier so that we could offer a better quality of service. The patients were expecting good customer service and we provided that.
Senior Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – October 15, 2015
Working at Kaiser as a Senior Research assistant was a team oriented environment, my co-workers were nice and detailed, My projects manager was nice even under pressure, there was nothing really hard about this position, for the exception of working with participants .
Kaiser Permanente is a very compassionate and successful organization. Their heart is in the right place. But they are also a massive bureaucracy.
Director, Regional Planning and Decision Support (Current Employee) – Oakland, CA – October 14, 2015
I have enjoyed my years at Kaiser Permanente and I am only looking for another position so that I can go back to patient care. Kaiser Permanente is very generous with employees and extremely compassionate. Their heart is in the right place and the organization truly has taken "managed care" to a level that is well beyond the rest of the market. The people of Kaiser Permanente truly believe in capitation as the best method for not only reducing health care costs, but also for keeping people healthy. This is an organization with a mission and specific goals. They are all worthy goals.
Kaiser Permanente is also like a government bureaucracy. With over 175,000 employees, it is sometimes impossible to get things done in an efficient manner.
Excellent benefits, higher than market wages, and compassionate care.
Like working for the government - big bureaucracy.
FTE Contractor (Former Employee) – East Bay, CA – October 13, 2015
even though i was a contractor who worked at kaiser, i still enjoyed my time there, although they were not flexible with the hours, its a strict 8-5 job, and you have to be full time, no part time accepted.
