    Pros

    Great benefits, pension plan for employees, and member centric care. Many employees have been there for 20+ yrs.

    Cons

    Minimal decision making authority for middle management...very top down. Slow to get rid of low performers at the Director level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold everyone accountable using the same standard measures. Include middle management and front line in discussions before facility-related decisions are made.

    Pros

    The company has great benefits, and there is strong company loyalty. Many employees stay with the organization for 20+ years. The company also provides excellent training opportunities for managers. The company is well-placed in today's current healthcare marketplace to be competitive.

    Cons

    The company does have occasional labor dispute issues, which can be disruptive to the company's operations. There also have been cut-backs in various departments to improve efficiencies, and it has led to decreased morale at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on improving efficiencies and quality of care, while rewarding those individuals who really contribute towards the overall success of the organization.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Kaiser cares about all the people involved in its organization including its members and employees. I have always felt listened to and valued by the company.

    Cons

    The company is a huge bureaucratic machine. It can takes weeks and sometimes months to get something approved because there are so many layers involved in decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give lower level managers more discretion. It will help get things done faster and more efficiently.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They value the employee at any leve and relyl on input with regards to making processes more efficient. Priority one is the customer and second are the employees while striving to keep healthcare costs affordable for everyone. Benefits are outstanding! Between time off and healthcare, couldn't ask for more. Staff are warm and seem to genuinely care for the well being of one another.

    Cons

    Rapid growth within the company and policies and procedures are still playing catchup, while staying compliant.

    The pay isn't great but the hours and benefits are.
