Workplace Safety

Safety standards were exceptional.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Other depts seemed much more high energy and directed, but mine was miserable. Every female employee felt ignored and disrespected regardless of experience. There were times when co-workers openly berated us for things as juvenile as not saving them a seat at a luncheon. Contractors kept getting hired despite the fact that there was not enough work. Employees were pitted against each other. It was all very dysfunctional.
  • I have rarely suggest lay-offs, but that dept needed them. Retiring at Kaiser comes with medical for life, so no one leaves. There were few people interested in learning something new.

Workplace Safety

Yes

Suggestions for improvement

  • If you reach retirement as an employee, you get health insurance for life. Consequently no one ever quits. The old guard needs to be shaken up, people need to learn to be more progressive, old habits need to be broken. In any other environment, lay offs would have weeded out a lot of the problems.

I like about the employer

Telecommuting. That's pretty much it.

I dislike about the employer

While I think there were better depts, mine was sluggish, obstructionist and very uncomfortable for women. i have never seen so many people move so slowly to accomplish so little. Meetings were very democratic, which at first seemed nice, everyone had a chance to voice an opinion. But it resulted in gridlock. 6 months later the same group would be meeting to argue over the same things, no progress. No one in a management position would make a decision and provide guidance. The pay was great, telecommuting was nice, but it was frustrating to accomplish so little because you were dependent on others that would not move forward. I was there 18 months and I really cannot point to anything I was proud of doing. I found myself feeling bored and uncaring of results I could not influence so I knew I could not stay.
