Work-life balanceWork life balance isn’t too badPay & benefitsExcellent pay and excellent benefitsJob security and advancementJob security is great and my manager supported me going to school. But I’ve heard in other departments that it’s difficult to findOverallYou work hard, yes. Is it worth it? 100% I loved working here!!! I had to leave due to school but I highly recommend kaiser to anyone! I hope to be hired again once I graduate with my RN. Excellent pay(35/hr for LVN which is unheard of) Excellent benefits( did I mention they’re FREE)I love kaiser. People talk badly about the work environment here but I have never had an issue

Great pay, great benefits, it is a union strong group of employees! Hard to get benefits if you’re new because they give positions based off Sonority.
Pros
1hr lunch
Cons
Breaks used during lunch time to make 1 full hr

If you enjoy being micromanaged, humiliated publicly when you make an error, and a toxic environment that everyone acknowledges but no one is willing to change, this might be the place for you.
Pros
The pay
Cons
Everything else

I've worked at several Kaiser locations and settings and they are all the same. As an employee you are part of the machine and your individual needs and personhood are subsumed into that. There is a certain numbness to it that can feel enjoyable, if you enjoy meaningless work. But there's a dark side. The machine is profit focused (Kaiser has a for-profit wing that is owned by the physicians) and seeks to minimize expenses by blocking patients from getting care.
Pros
clear expectations
Cons
no one really cares

If you’re looking for a entry level position in the healthcare field this would be a great stepping stone for you. The shifts are horrible, management don’t care or respond to your concerns, and no advancement within the company unless you been there 5 plus years Kaiser don’t really care about their employees. They only give you $15 per period towards your benefits that you have to pay for per period.
Pros
Pay, benefits
Cons
Shifts, Pto, metrics, management

Everything was an emergency but had to wait until after hours for contractors to work on equipment, all PMs had to wait until off hours as well. Most department heads were hard to deal with but there are some honest hard working people in this organization.
Pros
Flexible hours, Great Boss at the time.
Cons
Stressful

I worked there for over 25 years and it’s fantastic company that is one of the few that still has a company funded pension and also provides a darn good life insurance plan and a long term disability insurance for its employees. So many great perks to this company
Pros
Free life and Long term disability insurances
Cons
Some managers are allowed to stay longer than they should

awful corporate finance environment management does not care about employees. They say they are progressive but they are so conservative. So picky they want you to be clean shaven.

Regret ever working here, only job I've ever had where I felt I wasted my time, was unable to grow professionally, and truly felt like just another number. Employee feedback doesn't exist, even annual reviews get missed, and don't even think about getting quarterly conversations in with your supervisor or manager to receive feedback or set goals. Those kind of things happen when "all the work is done", even though everyone knows there will ALWAYS be more work.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Poor management

This company’s benefits, you can’t beat! The pay is awesome, the free insurance all awesome! Management, is another thing! It’s a call center, so keep that environment in mind, but as far as leadership, they are always lost, things change daily, they add things to make the workload harder, I had a total of 6 supervisors. The turnover rate is high. Call volume is high, which is normal but the micromanaging will drive you crazy!
Pros
Benefits, Pay, Annual Raise, Bonuses, Ufcw
Cons
24/7 operations, Micromanagement, Inconsistencies, Management

KP is an awesome company to work for. Do your job and mind your business and go home! KP do have great goals and strive for excellence and great customer care! KP offer training classes and great family/work life balances for employees. COVID-19 has hit every one and things are changing. As we get back into full swing things will get better for everyone! The employees at Kaiser Permanente have been with them for 30-40 plus years and majority of the employees retires from KP ! The benefits are great and they pay their employees well! Great work environment, free parking, kitchens on every floor as well as 2 refrigerators, snack machines, very clean environment as well as well kept! I talk to many members daily and I am so eager to help and even find myself praying with the members! I feel very appreciated by all of the members I assist daily!
Pros
Great incentives package, great work environment
Cons
Being part time/on call you don’t get paid time off or health benefits

Great compensation but the stress of work environment is just not worth it. Good luck trying to get vacation. Also sick policy is ridiculous for a healthcare company. Worst company I’ve worked for. People come into Kaiser looking so happy and after a few months look like they’ve aged years, stressed, overwhelmed, and unwell. It’s all about the numbers and money there
