I have been working at Kaiser Permanente

Pros

Job benefits (medical) and mission (health care) of the company. This is a non-profit company where corporate profits (greed) dominates the agenda.

Cons

The fact that the company is not profit oriented results in the company not making managerial changes which would result in a better operating company. The deadwood is slow to be cleaned out in contrast to a for profit environment. Also, the senior members of the company appear to be in their "last" jobs and just waiting till retirement. The company needs to have Sr. Managers that have a forward looking orientation that are in the "growth" mode w/ respect to their careers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do more to understand the grass roots of what is going on within my area of the company (National Facility Services).

    Pros

    Great benefits such as full medical, dental and generous vacation package. KPbelieves in doing the right thing for the patient. Ethical. I like how the organization supports is "Thrive" campain by not only having healty oriented classes for patients, but works to support employees toward better health. There's a weekly Farmers Market onsite, online tools to help with fitness and diet goals. They have health fairs so employees can get their health questions answered. Great education opportunities. Strong company growing--not stagnant. Feel like I have job security.

    Cons

    Being too big can be tough when you want to make changes "across the board"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep taking advice from the front line employees. Otherwise, doing great.
