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

Pros

Short-term (non-retirement) benefits are good. Several facilities in several cities/states so you have flexibility as to where you live & work. Long term job security/stability is good.

Cons

So many!...No accountability for non-productive employees and no recognition for those that are. Very bad "Partnership" between company and employee union that benefits only the company. Company is too driven by awards/national recognition to the point of discrimination against what CEO has labeled "Euro-American male" (American-born caucasian). Company has many rules aimed at the "Worker Ant", but same rules do not apply to supervisors; there is supposedly zero tolerance for retaliation if employee reports a problem...not true, because Kaiser has no control of it's supervisors. Supposedly zero tolerance for harassement and bullying...not true if the offender is a supervisor -- a lot of double standards. I've seen/heared some ugly things in the past four years, evidence of a decline in internal relationships. Company will take the rare grade "A" employee and knock them down to a grade "C" so they better fit in with all the other "C" employees Kaiser hires. Minimal career opportunities for a pharmacy tech. (for example, cannot move from outpatient technician to inpatient tech, which pays better)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop worrying so much about national recognition, and pay attention to what's going on with the "Worker Ants"

    Pros

    Excellent medical benefits, decent salary increase based on cost of living

    Cons

    Kaiser Culture where it feels like individuals are just trying to cover themselves. Lack of ability/willingness to think out of the box to accomplish end goals. Behind the scene office politics which hinder the overall goal of the project.
