I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great health coverage, work benefits, great vacation days!

Cons

Working with union employees, difficult to move up because there are so many applicants (internal and external), politics (but that's with every organization), ACCOUNTS PAYABLE is the most difficult to deal with, IT support is horrible.

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (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.
