I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Great benefits. People not in career-growth positions can be nice. Local IT support folks are awesome.

Cons

This company is too big. The systems it uses don't 'play well with others'. There are too many hands in the cookie jar to be able to track the financial data accurately. This place is wrought with politics.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get everyone on the same page with respect to 'we are all one company, let's act like it'. Get rid of all these home-grown systems and use 1 set of systems company-wide. Quit being cheap at the local level, while throwing money to the wind on useless leadership trips.

    Pros

    People focused on Member (Patient) care and trying to do the right thing. Great benefits including retirement and many opportunities.

    Cons

    The management is highly disorganized. The management has a difficult time saying no if in initiative is presented by a senior person. This leads to hundreds of millions being wasted with no accountability. There is also a culture of senior management not wanting to make decisions and this leads to a large blotted organization with billions of dollars being charged to the Members in the form of higher rates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Select your priorities and stick to it. Hold decision makers accountable.
