    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits are terrific and the for the most part the peer group I worked with was great. I think you this organization is disciplined and will be successful under health care reform.

    Cons

    The higher you go in the organization they more political it gets. Learning how to maneuver through the politics is an important attribute to have if you plan to work at Kaiser.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really pay attention to the qualifications of your hires and make sure if your middle management are hiring predestined choices they are truly qualified.

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Kaiser does try to promote a diverse working environment. They also promote choices for their staff's over all health. They provide locations for their members for better access to Providers and health services and their salary and health care packages are very competitive.

    Cons

    Kaiser tends to have very stressful work environments. And they don't always live up to their commitment to staff goals. On occasion, their supervising staff is not in sync with the over all goals of the licensed staff of the departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to listen to the staff that has direct care responsibility with the patients. And be more flexible with staff work flow.
