I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- lots of opportunities - if you self-driven you can build yourself a real career - excellent benefits - good work life balance, but you have to manage it

Cons

- promotions come by chance and being in the right place at the right time - not by hard work - you feel the weight of politics and the higher you go the more heavier it gets - no career growth planning - leadership does not know how to retain superstars

Advice to Management

- listen to employees - provide career growth plans - reduce management layers

    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 benefits, 403b matching contributions, overall good work/life balance, excellent health benefits, great mission statement and most employees strive to live up to it

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement, limited training opportunities; too many layers and politics; high emphasis on optics and not enough on substance

    Advice to Management

    Management should be more hands on and focus on business and care execution and less on politics.
