    Current Employee - Graduate Intern in Pasadena, CA

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Non profit company with lots of diversity and opportunities to learn about kaiser and how they deliver excellent services to their members. The pay was on the high side for a Non-profit company and the intern program itself is fun with lots of learning activities. Work-life balance is also a huge bonus.

    Cons

    There is no development of interns towards securing a FT offer at the end of the program. The managers are weak and don't give you time to develop, I found myself asking for projects or more work. The members of my team are stand offish and fragmented. Everyone is mobile so there is little to no team collaboration. Everyone seemed to be worried about having or losing a job if they collaborated or shared there processes with you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Collaborate with your intern and develop their skill sets. Provide learning and teaching opportunities that will allow your interns to feel integrated with the teams functions.

    Micro Managing Out of a Crisis -- creates more problems

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Worked for this company (Georgia Region) for sixteen years. Great place to work in that the office culture between employees were great -- has the potential to be a leader in the healthcare industry for Georgia --

    Cons

    Recent attempts to grow the brand in Georgia has caused the company (Georgia Region) to move away from some of the key values that once made it a great company to work for. Seems to be moving towards a strategy of managing and not necessary leading in a crisis -- employees seems to be looked at more as a liability that an asset for the company -- managers are picked based on who you know and not necessarily on what you know -- many veterans are leaving to escape the finger pointing when least experienced managers feel insecure of more knowledgeable and more deserving employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should not overlook those folks who got you to where you are (in the years where the bottom line was in the black) as you attempt to move forward and grow your brand in Georgia -- your employees can be your greatest sales force if you put your trust in your entire team and not just your management team -- Don't look at folks with constructive criticism as if they are not team players, especially if they have been with you for almost two decades and had not been a problem -- The corporate office need to review HRs policy concerning age discrimination and the use of negative and biased evaluations when team unity is problematic should be stressed with management team.
