    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free Benefits, wasn't micro-manged by my direct manager,

    Cons

    This is by far the worst HR department I have EVER worked in. You have Sr. Managers who are 1. NOT Qualified for their jobs. 2. Hire their best friends and then put their BFF's on all of the committees with upper management and ignore the rest of the team. 3. The amount of nepotism that is going on with some of the managers is sick! Some of the managers are so far removed from what their own team does, they are clueless. Then you have employees who think they are your manager, but are just on a power trip, because managers in this HR department allow and condone extremely bad and bullying behavior. What the VP needs to do is open his eye up to the SUPER STARS in the department who are not being able to show their true potential, because you have some very insecure managers and employees who are horrible, and are put on all the committees, and other employees are not even given a chance to contribute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    OPEN YOUR EYES TO SOME OF THE NEWER TALENT HIRED ON OR YOU ARE GOING TO KEEP LOSING EMPLOYEES WHO CAN BE A GREAT ASSET TO THE DEPARTMENT AND THE COMPANY. Get rid of your SR. Managers and hire new from outside the organization to start fresh and to wipe away any type of the nepotism that is destroying the department. Also, HR VP should spend several weeks working in the office around the other employees to really grasp how BAD the environment really is. You have employees who are ready and have had breakdowns, because their are just some NASTY people in that department who need to be removed.
