    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Progressive values
    Great people
    Excellent benefits
    Integrated care delivery system

    Cons

    Bureaucrats who understand nothing about delivering frontline health care run the show - they talk a good game about 'quality of care' but all decisions reflect the bottom line, always - members' needs are never at the forefront of their thinking

    Reduced access to resources and understaffing are chronic - staff constantly pushed for more productivity with less resources, increasing trend to reduce local non-frontline personnel (I.e. Billing, HR) in favor of centralized national ones or electronic process (I.e. Eliminate patient check in staff with electronic kiosks)

    Terrible middle managers (absolutely terrible) - unqualified nurse managers oversee more capable staff

    Change is a constant, new ideas promoted before the old ones have been worked out, always think they're reinventing the wheel

    Tense labor-management environment undergirds everything in the organization

    No opinion of CEO
