I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time for 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.

    Kaiser Permanente is a good company with great values, but lacking in management.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits. The company has an important social health care mission and community benefit program. The company has very dignified purpose in the health care delivery and insurance business. The product of the organization as a whole, is directed at health care and that is the primary focus.

    Cons

    As an organization, the insurance and business side of the company known as "health plan" of the company needs much more work. Some VP leaders lack people management competencies, skills and emotional intelligence. The management style of some leaders within the sales team leaves much to be desired as they're only interested in their own success and hidden agendas. There is very little work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior leaders that mentor and promote people to management, should consider focusing on successful people management. There are several VPs and directors that are only interested in their own success and next opportunity.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Kaiser cares about their members almost to a fault. High quality care. Tries to promote health and wellness with employees. Good room for growth at company - promotes from within. Has a pension program.

    Cons

    Getting anything done means crossing so much red tape. Too many talking heads, not easy to make decisions. Pay and 403b match is not as high as other insurances companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less VPs, more decisive action.

    Negative Outlook
