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

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits are pretty good as well. Especially paid health care. Large company with a lot of options available in various departments

    Cons

    Time off is ok, but not great. Gets better after 4 years or employment. VPs spend most of the time in meetings, spend little time explaining the direction they are taking everyone and set goals with little thought behind how it can be accomplished. Culture is really lacking here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. Message to staff is to live life and "Thrive" but is rarely practiced in my department. Little flexibility for working at home, upper management has the expectation that work should be taken home with you.

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

    Pros

    Good referral system. Good computer system for documentation. No need to take work home with you.

    Cons

    Sick Sadistic compnay politics as follows: Company forces you to have Kaiser health insurance. Company policy is to provide you with confidentiality. However, there are ways to bipass this and at will, managers allow your colleagues access to your confidential medical record and the information in it is used against you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop some integrity. Stop creating environment where patient/employee privacy can be easily violated for personal/political reasons.
