    Pros

    Kaiser is a great company to work for. Great benefits and compensation. Depending on your supervisor, there are a lot of opportunities and they want you to have a life and work balance. It is like a big family not only within your own department but with other departments as well. Many of the employees here take much pride being apart of Kaiser and are usually with the company for long duration.

    Cons

    There is a management disconnect, many of the departments do not communicate among each other, causing there to be a ripple in communication. And many departments do not know the work that one another does. Instead of working together, each departments work against each other many times, as a competition, which significantly slows the process of certain goals.

    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 Management

    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.
