    Pros

    Kaiser has some wonderful benefits: health, dental, vision, life insurance, disability benefits, pay, education tuition reimbursment.

    Cons

    Some racial inequality, clickish, not work and personal life savy, no overtime, high turnover rate, concerned with numbers, your work is based on your computer generated scores (did you check a blood pressure, allergies, exercise).

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management is to be truly fair with all employees, stop showing favoritism, and stop allowing gifts to sway who you decide to give time off to or overtime as well.

    Pros

    The pay is one of the best in the South and the Union is awesome in this "right to work" state. The insurance is the cheapest and best around, for a family of 3 for an employee, appx 30.00 a pay period! My job is less stress than my previous trauma center so this is a break with nice benefits!

    Cons

    Normal staff problems, Techs are so limited in what they can do. Epic need some improvement, simple to use, doesn't flow that well, but workable.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the Paramedics and EMTs to initiate IV lines.

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    KP invented the HMO and optimized care delivery for patients through research, EMR, and innovative approaches to Healthcare. They have competitive pay, 401k, Tuition Re-imbursement, Benefits and committed people to the cause of health.

    Cons

    Depending on which region you work it is unlikely you will enjoy a Work/Life Balance. A Kaiser you WILL Work and if you don't define your boundaries they will grind you into dust. Don't get it wrong, it's a great place to get experience and if your wise save money. Also it's VERY political ergo I would advise you get hired into a position that you want to be in because you can become "stuck" in a role. Overall you can do it, just have a plan and stick to it they are a corporation at the end of the day

    Advice to Management

    Strategy is often defined as what a business chooses NOT to do well. This is the reason why we don't go to walmart looking for award winning customer service, and the same reason we don't expect the Ritz to be cheap. If you implement a strategy you have to give it time to work, (5-7) years ie Strategic. Tactical planning is 3-4 years and operations is day to day. Fire incompetent people entrenched in leadership, promote Bright and hungry youth within the organization. You maybe able to compete with the ever-changing market
