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

    Pros

    Great pay and great benefits! Excellent opportunity for career growth. Multiple leadership off sites to instill the organizations goals and direction and motivate their leaders. Some opportunity for work life balance depending on your superior.

    Cons

    Physicians are the owners of SCPMG. If they decide they are no longer happy with you then you no longer have a career. Senior Management will initially tell you you are doing a great job and say they are supporting you but when their backs are against the wall you are left to fend for yourself. Butt kissing and back stabbing go a long way with helping you get to the top. Don't ever cross anyone in senior leadership, you will be blacklisted. This is even if you've never been placed on an action plan and have had good/great evaluations. Finally, union employees, you may have grounds to terminate or issue a corrective action but if they are long term employees they are allowed to return to work through the arbitration process or by the union business rep having a relationship with senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparency in the truest form is key. Mentoring new managers is needed. Often times, they are left to figure it out on their own. Truly support your middle managers. They work hard for the organization and need to know when things are not going well long before it's too late to make changes.

    Pros

    Great benefits, supportive management, and work life balance

    Cons

    It's difficult to advance your career if you don't know the right people or position yourself properly. There's a lot of training to provide skill enhancement, but it doesn't help with getting that better paying job. The classes aren't recognized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assist staff with career advancement and discuss their short and long term goals. This should provide a better understanding of where they want to be and if they're comfortable with where they are.
