Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Bellflower, CA – November 21, 2017
I have worked at Kaiser since 2008 and the experience has been mixed. Overall the facility and the Core values are great but the staff tend to be less than friendly and supportive to new nurses. The management team is aware and try to help but it's up to the Charge nurses to make sure you do not fail. Although I still have my challenges with some of the staff I have found it to be one of my best experiences both professional and personally.
Great opportunity to learn and keep your skills sharp. Great benefits
Project Manager (Former Employee) – San Francisco Bay Area, CA – November 21, 2017
A good place to work if you are in the right department with a good manager. Otherwise there is continual reorganization and risk of job loss. There are many centralized departments, but local hospital operations as well.
Lead Improvement Advisor (Former Employee) – Anaheim, CA – November 21, 2017
In my time at Kaiser Permanente, I gained a whole new level of respect for the overall care they provide to the community. From outpatient to inpatient, they really focused on care across the continuum.

Human Resources - Recruitment Assistant (Current Employee) – Panorama City, CA – November 20, 2017
I loved working for Kaiser, the only downside was that my particular position was non-benefited and contracted for 1 year. Had I been offered benefits and made a full time permanent employee, I would have wanted to stay long term. Also, the distance for me was wearing down my vehicle. I was driving 120 miles round trip and putting more than 500 miles on my car/weekly. The fact that my manager and my work colleagues were so amazing, made me want to continue working there. I took a 3 dollar pay cut just to work for this amazing company, learning that my position had no opportunity for advancement made me consider looking for other jobs. I hate to leave, but my ultimate goal is to continue advancing in my career.
Great management and great colleagues.
No benefits for my position, long distance, contracted.
Service Desk Analyst (Current Employee) – Corona, CA – November 20, 2017
Kaiser Permanente is a good learning opportunity for anyone starting out in the IT field. They have so many different software and hardware that anyone working here will leave with much better understanding of how technology works and have greater troubleshooting skills.
FRONT END ENGINEER (Current Employee) – Oakland, CA – November 20, 2017
Working here has had its ups and downs. At first, employees were promised a set of things they would be offered upon joining Kaiser but it was never delivered. MicroManaging occurs here. Managers are ill-trained.
no title (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – November 20, 2017
A great place to work.
The organization is always pushing to grow membership and establish new territories. Many medical processes administrative and technical roles have become automated which will reduce the number of employees needed for many types of jobs.
Supervisor of Medical Records (Former Employee) – Riverside CA – November 20, 2017
Only issue I had was it was "union" and some long-timers had issues with changes. Very good management and very qualified with college degrees, etc. If you earned advancement, it was because you were best qualified for positions, not because you are friends with the boss.
REGISTERED NURSE (Former Employee) – Bellflower, CA – November 20, 2017
THey treat employees and patients like s$%6! Management does not care. Employees are canaving its a very hostile enviroment. There is favortism, nepostism, and a certain group of group of culture has all their family members and friends working there becuase of this, Managers favor their own type of cultural employees
Medical (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – November 18, 2017
Outside of the Bay Area, the ratings look pretty good. But here, if you have any other possible offer or place to work accept it. Any negative work and awful patient experiences you've heard are true. A recent survey this year shows almost 20% of employees would not trust Kaiser with their own health or the health of a loved one. Life is too short to get involved in this drama and gossip filled corporation.
Some cool coworkers
Cutthroat, infighting, low waged people don't get promoted, nothing is more important that money and profit, big corporate mentality (but relatively small)
Medical Assistant Externship (Former Employee) – Tracy, CA – November 18, 2017
Everyone here has been amazing. I don't currently work here but I am doing my externship there and everyone has been amazing. They are training me in the OB department and have been amazingly helpful and supportive through out this whole process.
