You are generally overworked, doing monitoring of jobs starting at 4:00 i the morning. Even then we have to work until 4:30 ~ 5:00 in the evenings. We are asked to get up and monitor at 4:00 in the morning, even on weekends. And this repeats every alternate week. Toxic environment.
The most toxic environment ever. The benefits are so amazing because they use it to shut you up about what’s really happening behind the scenes. Management bullies and uses employees as scapegoats for their failings. Co-workers will stab you in the back, but upper mgt fosters that. It’s mental suicide to work for Kaiser and overrated.
KP @ Bellevue is TOXIC TOXIC TOXIC!!
I don't think all of Kaiser is like this but IT/ Electronic record side Middle management is the worst. They come into the job either by neptitism or "I would have been stupid not to apply" even when they know they would not be good at the job. No one mentors them so they never learn. Sometimes managers get positions even if they've never worked or have experience in what their subordinates do. These particular managers also happen to be micromanagers to the point of monitoring why did you walk in the hallway even if it was to go the restroom. we are all adults here. Seriously ridiculous. There are rules in place to stop retaliation but but managers know how to go around it and are careful too cover their tracks. Plus HR is extremely understaffed and overworked so you are on your own. Union postions looked better but this non union postion was not worth it. Especially being exposed to Covid countless times due to your manager saying it's "just the flu", getting only 2 % raise each year for five years, and noncurrent 2001 department rules that "trump" national rules because "that's how it is". Stay out of the support side of epic or be treated like lower people.
Nepotism or know someone on the inside.
All I can say is stress stress stress
Poor management issues, unfair practices, high stress generated with little support. I was having depression and anxiety but job was making it worse, unable to continue working
Nurse Manager in Colorado Springs is clueless and gives ZERO support to staff. How can you manage a clinic where you know about 3% of what our daily tasks are.. morale at an all time low
Due to lateness which I approved then still let go due to dislike of a new unprofessional manager that talk to you like a child. Union is the worst didn’t nothing whichi it seem their on the management side not the employees that pay their union dues.
The management at Kaiser Irvine is horrible!! Always bullying, retaliatory, and unprofessional. Unsafe for patients due to being terribly short staffed and the management team doesn’t care or try to fix it.
