Pros

It's core values align very well with the new ACA marketplace.

Cons

Kaiser is not a nimble organization with a lot of senior leaders so strategic and capital decisions can be painstaking.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recruit talent from outside the organization and outside healthcare to gain fresh business perspectives.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I had some great co-workers, which is the only reason to work there. My original managers were friendly and supportive.

    Cons

    Rigid culture. Constant reorganizations. After several years of observation and sharing experiences with many people, in my opinion upper management does not care about their employees whatsoever. They employ a variety of nasty tactics to force targeted people out, singly or in groups. You would not expect such astonishingly juvenile behavior from adults, let alone senior management: Bullying, harassment, cliques, ostracism, shaming.
