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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Company vision and business model are progressive and forward thinking. Kaiser is we positioned to meet the challenges of Afffordable Care Act.

    Cons

    Kaiser could do better with developing and empowering its employees to move up the career ladder as opposed to hiring external.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    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.
