I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The people are great and the work is interesting. The pay is really good and the work is not too demanding. The concept of a physician-owned healthplan is great even if the execution of that concept isn't.

Cons

Leadership is extremely fragmented, so you'll waste a lot of time on objectives that constantly change. The company is so risk-adverse that progress is almost impossible. If you don't mind working for a company that is doomed to failure, I'd recommend this place as long as the paycheck doesn't bounce.

    Mostly great, except near the end when pointless and ill-defined power struggles cost many people their jobs.

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Helping to get employer groups to offer cost-effective, high-quality health care to their employees.

    Cons

    In the area where I worked, having no clear idea of the value of the "product" (marketing), the insanity turned to managers thinking themselves powerful by being abusive and ultimately helping to destroy the teams that actually got work done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring dip-wads. Oh, wait, too late: the place is over-run by dip-wads.
