I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great mission that builds on its roots and commitment to what's right. Financially conservative in some ways, which leads to relative job stability. People here truly care.

Cons

Management in marketing is not so great. Many poor hiring decisions at executive level have led to turnover at mid-to-senior level management level. Mid-level management misbehavior is tolerated too long without being addressed. Staff feels lack of vision, other than that we need to save money and work more efficiently.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give equal value to seasoned ("legacy") folks and newer folks with varied experience. The old way alone will no longer work, but moving forward without valuing historical knowledge will sink us. Truly empower us and don't treat us like children with management theory cliches (this mesage to a select few)

    I felt that I was a part of extremely important work: making people's lives better through healthcare.

    Former Employee - Senior Medical Planner/Architect in Oakland, CA

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

    Pros

    Great benefits; great salary; practically every sort of field, job, or discipline under the sun; brilliant people; my job allowed me to foster relationships with hundreds of people throughout the US.

    Cons

    Depending on the department, there may be little chance for advancement opportunities. Salary increases tend to be small - typically 2-4%. Highly regulated organization (Federal, State, Local), so there are strict limitations on business processes, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider increasing "rank & file" staff in your department - those who must handle the daily work to keep everything running - in addition to creating and filling senior leadership roles.
