    Current Employee in Vallejo, California

    Kaiser Permanente has great benefits as long as you are a 20+ hour employee. It offers medical, vision, and dental coverage. The pay here is also good.

    Current Staff RN in Portland, Oregon

    After 15 yrs of service my medicare supplement is covered when I retire. I have a pension , with a dedicated benefit calculated on my years of service and average annual salary for my final few years. If you work 32 hours or more a week an RN pays like 6-7.00 every pay period (2 wks) and this covers both the RN and FAMILY. I just had an inpatient Stay and had my hip replaced. I walked away with NO copays for the entire stay and surgery.

    Best thing is that you start of with 4 weeks of vacation which increases to about 7 weeks of paid time off after 10yrs not including holidays. You can bank up to 500 hours and in some regions it stops accruing, i.e. NCAL but in SCAL they just pay you out the overage.

    The best thing is the retirement and healthcare benefits at Kaiser. The worst is the employee tuition assistance plan.

    The health care is wonderful. I highly recommend it to everyone whether you're an employee or not. Dental care is OK with a limit of $1000 per year.

    Obviously, great health insurance, which stays with you after retirement, if you work in a region that has Kaiser Insurance. Flexible work schedule, work from home - those were the best parts for me.

    Former Employee in Burbank, California

    Best: health insurance plan
    Worst: 401k match doesn't kick in for 1 year

    EXCELLENT benefit offerings, with several HMO plans available. This is remarkable in the current climate, where CDHPs are the wave.
