    Top notch healthcare organization.

    Healthcare Consultant (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsKaiser has excellent compensation packages including time off and education assistance to further oneself. They are a world class organization.

    ConsAn organization as big as Kaiser Permanente is, it can be hard not to get lost within it's scope and breadth. Like any large company this is a constant battle it has to fight against.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAction isn't always required but always respectfully listen.

    Kaiser Permanente - many possibilities

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Denver, CO

    ProsKaiser offers many types of employment, everything from direct patient care to Marketing, Finance, and Research. Once in, your ability to move around is great. As you grow, so can your career - networking is very important once inside. Kaiser believes in promoting from within but is not afraid to go outsite to bring in the best. The benefits are also very good and currently include tuition reimbursement.

    ConsAs a non-profit HMO, the focus is on providing excellent healthcare at the lowest costs. Revenue deficits are typically absorbed by the company instead being passed on to the customer. Because of this, salaries are typically lower than in the for-profit market. Also, employees must make sacrifices such as doing more with less, including being understaffed, and at times work without a cost of living raise.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBusiness should not always be about the bottom line. People deserve at least a cost of living increase every year and this needs to be built into the business plan. No increase creates low morale, low morale creates production and human resource loss, all of this equates to financial loss.
