    I worked at Kaiser Permanente

    Pros

    Talented people dedicated to doing their job to the best of their ability.
    Internal loyalty to longer termed employees who do things the "Kaiser way."
    Ability to change track of work quickly.

    Cons

    Internal loyalty to longer termed employees who do things the "Kaiser way." Resistance to outside or new methodologies.
    Ability to change track of work quickly is over-exercised, abandoning processes and people midstream.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be as daring in organizational management as you are in healthcare. Treat your people with as much respect as you require them to treat your members. Give them real care instead of bedside manner.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salary, excellent benefits, great work-life balance. Many job and career advancement opportunities. Non-profit. Cares about your personal, physical and spiritual well being.

    Cons

    Difficult to compete as an HMO in a PPO world. Recently closed a region. Not expanding. These are signs of poor performance and financial struggles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold employees more accountable. Don't allow those to continue their job/position when they don't produce effective, accurate and honest work. Has a tendency to spend too much money on frivolous, unnecessary expenditures (i.e. travel).
