Current Employee - ---- in Portland, OR

I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Good pay and benefits. Some really dedicated and thoughtful people.

Cons

Broken HR department, overworked and understaffed workforce---do more with less only goes so far and then backfires. (what was that about work/life balance?) Very tight, top-down management. Choose your departments carefully. Lots of talk-the-talk but not walk-the-walk.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Produce talent, don't consume talent. (Invest in your people; don't chew them up and spit them out!) Don't fear sharing information, your people can understand more than you may think! Encourage communication--repeat: Encourage communication! Be accessible. Fewer and more productive meetings.
