Pros

Benefits, stability (generally), work life balance, some areas are cutting edge. Patient care and quality are paramount. To be successful you have to be self motivated and unwavering in your drive to make a difference. You have to build your network. While there are plenty opportunities, it can be easy to get lost in the shuffle and stuck if you don't have a network to help you identify opportunities outside your current environment.

Cons

bureaucratic - takes for every to get things done. While the org is cutting edge in the area of health care technology. The org lacks the right technology to enable employees to be efficient. They still use Lotus Notes for email - need I say more?

Advice to Management

Create career paths and development opportunities that enable individual contributors to work in different divisions so that they are able to be successful both in the facilities/med centers and corporate environments. More corporate employees should be exposed to how things run in the med centers and vice versa.

    Pros

    Good healthcare products, mission, better poised for healthcare reform than competitors, excellent research

    Cons

    Cuts corners on IT infrastructure and customer service, does not develop staff to advance from within - advancement based on who you know, not what you know.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk, ensure management staff have leadership qualities

    Pros

    Kaiser Permanente is a large company that values their employees by offering competitive salary rates and benefits.

    Cons

    The greater majority of the workforce is older, which makes it hard to communicate ideas and thoughts when they're used to a speaking in a certain lingo.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a younger workforce and develop it
