I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Well marketed company image, great benefits package, KP makes positive statements like "we support work-life balance". Cool healthcare image promoted to help employees feel good about their mission.

Cons

Huge organization, with complicated matrix management structure.
"Work life balance" in only applies to executive ranks and above, and to some administrative staff.
Conflicting priorities and constant reorganization.
Entrenched internal political parties.
Management fosters backstabbing.
Hierarchy is important, facts are not.
Recent "behaviors" weighted performance feedback system requires groupthink and punishes innovtion.
Compliance / HR hotline has limited integrity and is easily thwarted by the management about whom a complaint may be made.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look more closely at executives and directors who say they exceeded their performance goals and never take accountability for failures in their control that they mis-attributed to the levels below them.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente

    Pros

    In the past 5 years I have seen a lot of growth within the company.

    Cons

    I think more concentration should be given to our key areas such as locations, and the number of specialties immediately available to the members.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    it is relatively secure job with great medical, dental and pension plans; however do not be stupid and breach the code of ethics as they have zero tolerance!

    Cons

    it is a very busy work place, so if you are a slacker do not even think to apply; but if you enjoy being busy throughout your shift then this is your place!
