    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente as a contractor (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, great salary for a nurse. Union good for maintaining equality. Many various trainings required, and paid to attend these trainings.

    Cons

    More and more stressful over the years. Started in 2000, and best job ever for a floor nurse. However, at this time the paperwork (all computerized) has become so numerous and complicated, that you are spending less and less time interfacing with the patients, and more and more time on the computer during your shift just to complete your work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please streamline the paperwork!

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente (more than an year)

    Pros

    WAGES, Union will bat for you (only after 90 days)

    Cons

    poor training and on-boarding, sink-or-swim, not organized, will work you 9 or 10 days straight and balance it so you don't get o/t pay, every weekend and holiday as an on-call w/o so much as asking you before etching the schedule in stone, encourage employees to work double shifts that cause mistakes in pt care & testing, strict 3day/6mo sick days (they have sick emp's working with pts?), ,, sr employees are lazy, old out dated unsafe technique/skills, no dress code=facial piercings,exposed gang type tattoos and dirty t shirts/sweat pants; scary for patients, no certifications or formal training required, heartless or rushed butchers trying to draw morning labs up to 30 pts in less than 2 hrs make their Sunnyside lab a horrific place to work. It will get worse as they downsize to make room for new west hospital.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thrive motto and Labor & Management Partnership is a facade! Hire and keep employees with compassion, work ethics and current certified skills. Give your members what they deserve
