Current Employee - Director in San Francisco, CA
Current Employee - Director in San Francisco, CA

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

Pros

Great pay and excellent benefits. There are opportunities to move and promote within the organization, even to other states. Great use of technology.

Cons

The retirement plan keeps diminishing and the hospital sides healthplan for employees is not as good as it used to be.
Employees get away with a lot because the lawyers are afraid to terminate, especially managers and above.
Cutting employees without looking for waste elsewhere is shortsighted.
Life work balance is supposed to be valued, but the job responsibilities keep growing, with the number of people to do the work decreasing
Tuition reimbursement is minimal- does not show a true belief in higher education ($1000/yr)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be afraid to terminate employees who do not follow the rules. The rules mean nothing when employees see others getting away with breaking them.
Stop looking at metrics and start looking at what is behind the metric- you may be very suprised!
