Pros

Company is generally flexible, allows you to get your work done the way you need to do it (at the management level). Work is usually rewarding and visibly moves the company forward.

Cons

Suffers from giant bureaucracy. Senior management does not always pay attention to effectiveness of lower level managers.

Advice to Management

Follow through on making managers implement the good management principles that your consultants advise.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are good.

    Cons

    It's darn near impossible to get anything done. People talk of the old girls network at Kaiser, blocking all progress, and it's true. It seems like the "old girls" like to act as gatekeepers of information, preventing new girls and boys from getting anything done.

    Advice to Management

    New blood is needed. Especially in Program Offices KP needs a workforce that is younger, more ethnically diverse, and more male.

  2. Great patients and coworkers; little professional autonomy
