I have been working at Kaiser Permanente

Pros

My co-workers at Kaiser are dedicated and hard working. I work in Program offices and the level of intelligence and experience is wonderful. I am also a member and have always been pleased with the level of care that my family and I receive. Kaiser has excellent benefits and pay, plus there are so many ways to move up in the organization. Leadership is very encouraging to employees who want to improve their skills and experience

Cons

The bureacracy and red tape are insurmontable at times. No one wants to take responsiblity for making a decison, everything gets shelved for more and more and more discussion. The amount of meetings and the lack of progress at the meetings is really frustrating. In IT especially they are constantly reorging and not making things better!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop asking for consensus and make some decisons.

    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.
