    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Anyone who works at Kaiser will tell you one there is only one pro working for Kaiser; they pay you well. It's a constant struggle, do you quit and take a drop in pay or stay and potentially work yourself to death?

    Cons

    This company is a healthcare system, yet it's all about the bottom line. How much money can they can make? How many clients can be seen in the least amount of time and (hopefully) not kill anyone?

    Advice to Management

    Stop working for the bottom line and focus on REAL healthcare. Stop the pushing of medications instead of getting to the root of the real issue.

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    NOTE: Worked at company HQ in Oakland. Good office location, close to downtown Oakland, Lake Merritt, BART, and other transit options. Great people who truly care about their company's mission. My boss brightened up an otherwise boring job. Enjoyed weekly email "Messages from the CEO." He seems to truly care, as well.

    Cons

    NOTE: Worked at company HQ in Oakland. Limited outlets for creativity. Claustrophobic work environment full of cubicles, artificial light, and secluded offices. You'd think a health-focused company would place higher value on employee health & happiness at the office... Tightening budgets appear to be limiting opportunities for innovation and concentrating funding on core services. Very bureaucratic at times. Old systems (think pre-digital) can make it difficult to find the information you need. But I know they're trying to digitize the massive business...

    Advice to Management

    Remember that the "Thrive" campaign mission can apply to employees, too.
