Pros

Great company, great benefits, stable.

Cons

Easy to get pigeon-holed in a position because there isn't a clear
Career path. Poor marketing leadership on the national and local level.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your people, provide good training so they can stay relevant to their industry. Listen to your employees, they understand the day-to-day aspects of the job.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente

    Pros

    Benefits, vacation, and moderate work schedule are huge benefits. With some exceptions, an extremely stable workplace - no random firings from crazed VPs, a lot of help placing people during restructuring, which happens less than at other places. A great mission, and many great people to work with.

    Cons

    Along with the good people are the bad - deadwood, underperformers, stick-in-the-muds. Sometimes a lack of leadership. Definitely not enough development of personnel, with little in the way of career tracks - you have to make change happen for yourself, without help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop spending millions to maintain or upgrade really bad systems (like all of HR, and the Performance Review system). Kill those which are not truly necessary, and make the others world class - HR and IT is holding us back, when it should be bringing it forward!
    Also - the hiring process is broken. I have never yet heard a hiring manager say that HR is not a hindrance, perpetually refusing to forward ALL resumes - and making it abundantly clear that HR doesn't understand most of our jobs, let alone how to filter resumes for them. Just let the hiring managers do the work - and make the jobs website up to date and meaningful, with salaries!
