I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good salary, great colleagues, stable employment, union protection

Cons

Management trying to significantly reduce benefits, even in a time of record profits, computer systems are outmoded and too complex, top down management, no consideration for employee input. Kaiser is now all about perceived quality, not real service

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start talking to the folks who actually provide clinical care. Their experience is much different than what you think.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good Pay, vacation, benefits, exposure to different parts of healthcare

    Cons

    Organization would fit right into the 80s. Org charts manually updated once a month, fear and threats typical management style. No distribution of knowledge, overwhelming number of contractors in IT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make managers go to "boss school" and learn the basics. Praise publically, chastise privately, promote your team not yourself, learn to delegate, etc. Huge opportunity wasted as people learn quickly not to push the envelope - in any direction.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
