I have been working at Kaiser Permanente

Pros

Great social mission.
Important work.
Great people.
Low risk environment and fairly recession proof.
Politics exists but it is less fierce than in many other environments.
Potentially our nation's best shot at fixing healthcare.
The organization is willing to make large investments in IT, capital, and other areas to succeed and lead the industry.

Cons

There are pockets of exceptional people and fantastic working environments, but there are also very challenging places to work with less than ideal opportunity for advancement.

Very complex organization that can take some time to learn how to navigate.
Very consensus driven making decision making somewhat more slow and more complicated than in other organizations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Expect more of union employees.
Demand accountability on IT and other key initiatives.
Deal aggressively with those who fail to perform and or execute.
