    Cons

    Kaiser is a great place to work but as any organization can improve on cross training and implementing newer computer programs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep innovation in the forefront of Kaiser to keep our company viable in the 21st century. Do invest more in our employees and less on properties.

    Unique culture; can be good depending where you work. Avoid the Medicare LOB.

    Pros

    • They take development seriously, and mid-year and year-end reviews are very regimented and enforced strictly.
    • There are a lot of smart people who work here.

    Cons

    • Do not work with the Medicare line of business; the environment is toxic. They treat their internal partners horribly; make life difficult to force people to quit, publicly humiliate people in meetings, and treat vendors poorly.
    • Most managers manage up; it's that kind of culture. So don't expect much support from your manager, and expect to be autonomous.
    • There's a lack of true team cohesion. You don't really make friends here, there are no happy hours, etc. People work their eight hours and go home; it was the first job where I didn't leave having made any long-term friends. The culture seems cold and people for the most part keep their distance from each other.

    Advice to Management

    Do something about the Medicare LOB; although they're a big contributor to the bottom line, they are burning people out. Attrition is high among the teams who work with the Medicare LOB; you're clearly aware there's an issue but refuse to do anything about it. I realize I sound bitter, but this was the worst job experience I've ever had.
