Certified Pharmacy Technician II (Current Employee), Reston, VA – December 11, 2013
Pros: free healthcare, 2.5x holiday pay.
Cons: occasional extended hours for urgent care closing staff.
Co-workers are great. I got along well with everyone and enjoy working with goal oriented folks. The hardest part of the job for me are the late night hours. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the customers. Most of the time you feel like you're making a positive contribution. It's always nice when patients are appreciative and express – more... it. – less
The workplace can not be productive if your employees are not happy
Ca Unit Manager (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CA – June 9, 2014
Pros: there is no free lunch
Cons: sometimes a short brake make a world of difrents
Kaiser is a grate place to work I have been there for a long time . Working with my co-workers is grate and so is my boss. I just want to see what else is out there , That give me a opportunity to develop new skills I just want to draw blood and or process specimen .
Kaiser IT relies on contractors. There is a 2-year maximum, after which you are not likely to be hired on. Overwhelmed with data, disorganized. No training. Simple accomplishments require knowing the right person, rather than utilizing an established process. On the plus side, the building where IT is located has some great amenities--game room and – more... workout center. – less

Lead Warehouseman (Former Employee), Pasadena, CA – June 5, 2014
Pros: pay, and low stress job
Cons: advancement, and union was lacking
The hardest part of the job "Management" went from treating the employees like family to more money driven model. In addition, a number of supervisors were hired who didn't have interpersonal skills. This combined with not being qualified (lack of education) made it difficult to perform effective. The management of the 1990's was far more superior to – more... that which followed. – less

Medical technologist (Current Employee), Atlanta, GA – May 29, 2014
Pros: good pay and benefits
Cons: could do better with regards to paid time off.
The work one might have to do for the day can already be ascertained due to knowing what the physicians ordered as well as their appointments for the day. Staffing is such that no technologist is overworked, and management is so flexible that extra help is always readily available when needed.All my coworkers are quite friendly and very professional – more... and co-operative. The company has a strong penchant for diversity, so no matter one's background, everyone feels right at home. There is also enormous room for growth, and there is both acknowledgement and rewards for good work.Regular pay raises are the norm, although the pay rates are quite competetive. All instruments are kept in the best possible working condition or simply replaced with brand new ones. – less
