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 up given your years of service, and top notch health insurance, vision and dental
+ management really wants you to learn and develop, and encourages you to take classes to get where you need to go professionally
+ if you are willing to be pro-active and take the initiative, there are many things to learn and it will make you look good for other jobs later on or if you decide to transfer to another facility
+ large enough organization so that there are opportunities wherever Kaiser has a presence

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 from higher-ups just to get anything done
- IT sometimes leaves alot to be desired - long hold times to get help and unexplainable lag in order to get certain software installed or to be provided access rights to data systems
- frequent excuse-making for low-performers/lazy employees
- sometimes management and staff lose sight of the fact that we are here for the members and instead these same people act in their own self interest in order to make themselves look good to upper management
- way too many meetings! sometimes people have to work (unpaid if salary) OT just to get work done.

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 those people who make excuse after excuse and make them accountable to fix the problems or you'll find someone who can
> other than that, keep doing what you are doing to keep this a great work environment.

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