    Pros

    benefit and work hours are good. It comes with plenty of holidays and PTO. The work culture is very layback. If you are going for a long haul, this is the place. Most people have been with the company for over 10 years. And many are waiting to receive their retirement package.

    Cons

    Too much politics and autonomous organizations. Each group just cares about its territory. There is a lack of cross-functional team work. There are so much red tapes that discourage you to do any real work. For sure there are plenty of policies just like any big company, but their policies keep changing to the point that even your manager does not work what is the "latest" policy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce some layers of middle managements. They just complicate the whole approval and work process without adding any values.

    Kaiser may survive the next reorganization of health care with some integrity.

    Pros

    Compensation levels, opportunities to transfer when one moves, fairly advanced thinking about best practices and accountability for outcomes.

    Cons

    Some clinical SOPs are dumbed down to the lowest common denominator, and there is a subtle pressure not to get too interested in challenging cases. You could end up doing assembly line care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The original model of prepaid, preventative, integrated care is worth saving; it is a mistake to dilute it just to remain competitive in a market where customers just don't want to pay for that. It would be wiser to try to steer national health policy to make it affordable.
