Pros

Good industry to work in under the current economic situation, although possible government cutbacks to Medicare will have a large impact to Kaiser's bottom line.

Excellent benefits, decent pay scale on the higher end of competition. Very profitable company (although it's considered non-profit), has deep pockets.

Cons

Clear difference between union and non-union employees.

Union employees are "lifers" - they do not leave until they retire. Conversely, the non-union professional staff seem to have a high turnover, at least the groups I've been working with. This may be due to the fact that many of them are contract-based employees.

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente

    Pros

    I enjoyed the work environment and the people i worked with. The benefit package is very good and the salary is good if you negotiate.

    Cons

    Communication and development of ideas between teams is slow. North and SoCal offices are not very integrated. Most people work independently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more time out of the day to meet as teams and encourage a healthy work force by encouraging walks and workout sessions.
