I worked at Kaiser Permanente as a contractor (more than a year)

Pros

Not long hours. Good benefits. Generally friendly people. Centrally located to downtown.

Cons

Departmentalized. Leadership lacks strategic direction. Too many failed projects. High turnover.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out your priorities. Focus on the essential few projects and think more strategically rather than reactionary.

    Pros

    They truly approach healthcare from a holistic approach. They are very current on new medical knowledge and use that quickly when treating patient/members.

    Cons

    KP is frequently going through an on-going identity crisis. They don't know if they are a provider, an insurance company or other. In truth, they are both. There administrative services are not efficient or effective in the same way that the actual healthcare services are.
