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

Senior Medical Planner/Architect (Former Employee)
Oakland, CA

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

ProsGreat 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.

ConsDepending 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 Senior ManagementConsider 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Hope to retire from Kaiser Permanente!

Analyst (Current Employee)

I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time for more than a year


Pros: + very competitive starting salary and annual increases (I received two raises after 1.5 years on the job) + industry-leading benefits - PTO that really adds… Cons: - because it's such a large organization, things tend to move slowly, there's a ton of red-tape, and sometimes you need to wait on approvals… Advice to Senior Management: > cut down on meetings. seriously, if you cut 50% of meetings, you'd be amazed at all the things that can get accomplished > call out… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
