I worked at Kaiser Permanente (More than 3 years)

Pros

Kaiser Permanente offers good benefits and good pay. It's a diverse work place, with many interesting, hard working, enthusiastic people as co-workers.

Cons

There's way too much bureaucracy, and too much politicking. There's lots of middle management micro managing that gets in the way of accomplishing much.

Advice to Management

Find a way to reduce the bureaucracy and manage the in-fighting. Be more innovative and flexible.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    More benefits than most silicon valley companies I would wager. If you pick your career path carefully it is possible to move up with a fair amount of freedom. Once you get out of ground floor positions you have quite a bit of autoonomy --- a greater than chance to succeed or fail.

    Cons

    Can be a very high stress work environment. It's very difficult to shine in a culture that is primarily not meritocratic. But if you are a high producer eventually (if you have the patience and can deal with the politics) you'll be rewarded. Highly Political Environment. Easy to get branded.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time listening to your long-time employees who KNOW what they're doing and stop bringing outside consultants who consistently screw things up. This practice is indicative of a senior management demonstrating to its staff that they DON'T TRUST or SUFFICIENTLY VALUE their staff.
