I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Work life balance is for the most part ok.

Cons

You can not do anything without checking through layers of management. If you think outside the box, work somewhere else.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give people some autonomy and let them make their own decisions.

    Pros

    Company is on a mission to improve the health of the communities it serves. It's great to work somewhere where people really believe in what they are doing. Leadership and company believe in making decisions based on evidence.

    Cons

    Lots of stakeholders - everyone can say no or get in the way of an effort, few will say yes and push it forward. Too many people who aren't good enough at their jobs - KP doesn't manage people out for poor performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More empowerement and more accountability please.

    Pros

    Caring management. Meaningful work. Excellent benefits. Telecommuting.

    Kaiser is a big ship on an even keel. Interpret that however you will.
