I'm a lifer, but only because I have to be.

I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Full benefits (paid!) medical and dental with a minimum of 24 hours worked per week. Many Kaisers in the area, so transferring is always an option if you move.

Cons

Poor life/work balance. Educational Leave earned is never granted due to "operational needs", thus one has a very
hard time moving ahead. Weak union; in bed with management, allows our vacation seniority to be taken away, allows for scheduling changes w/o proper notice to employee. Poor 401k matching

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow your staff to learn and grow!! Some of us don't want to be clerks our whole life. We would love to be with Kaiser in other, well - paid fields such as radiology or nursing, but can never take a few hours off, or a day off with our hard earned Ed Leave to take pre-req classes because your management tells us the dept isn't fully staffed. We hear this year after year! Very unfair and doesn't give us a very high opinion of our employer.

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    This was a great place to work ten or 15 years ago. Good employee benefits and retirement plan. The culture has changed.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic. They bring in a lot of contractors who do good work and then never hire them. Every reorg gets rid of the oldest people. You can be there for years, you're out in a day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strong team dynamic, groups run like a family...a dysfunctional family.

    Hire some competent people who actually know their stuff.
