I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than a year)

Pros

I was able to make an educated decision on what I wanted to do, and things I might enjoy doing. I also learned to deal with impatient patients and being able to take in confrontation and to deal with customers without having a feeling of sympathy but professionalism.

Cons

The challenges were definitely the patients. Sometimes I was a bit overwhelmed, the co-workers definitely lacked enthusiasm.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My advice is to promote more positivity amongst the co-workers, I knew they were already getting paid well. They just needed to appreciate their job more, and I believe the management should applaud each and every one of them for doing well or improving. Everyone in the work environment just needed to be pushed to do better.

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

    Pros

    Great care / preventive care model. Fairly good promotion opportunities. Excellent CEO, Bernard Tyson. Seems to really care about its front-line staff.

    Cons

    They really struggle with being a national healthcare player. Great in CA, OR, and MD. Fairly good in CO. Really, really struggles in GA.

    Labor agreements really get in the way of getting things done. They have to promote a union culture but we would be better off with the union environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen, Listen, Listen. The CEO is great at this but other executives just are not.

    Go big in other regions outside of CA or go home.

    Pros

    The people are great to work with. Everyone has the same goal & purpose, which is to provide patient care.

    Cons

    There's a lot of politics, constant rules change & roadblocks, which keeps you very doing a simple job. There's so much red tape, that a 5 min job, will now take u an hour to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more consider and caring, listen & provide support to your staff, good or bad. There are out in the field representing u.
