    Pros

    The people I work with, the technology we use and the availability of services under one roof for our members.

    Cons

    Lack of career growth in some areas. Micromanagement, favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Come out and mingle with the employees more often to see the work as it's being done.

    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

    Pros

    Great benefits with good hours and good pay.

    Cons

    Not everyone is treated equally. If management would open their eyes when they are advised of unethical things KP could benefits from employees stealing time. The uncertainty of they Georgia Region has all of the employees talking among each other speculating about which jobs are going to be eliminated next.

    Advice to Management

    COMMUNICATE with you team members and EDUCATION AND TRAINING (PROPER TRAINING) would be very helpful.

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

    Pros

    Quality medical care with emphasis on health & wellness. 30 clinics in Metro Atlanta. Admin. Offices in Buckhead. Excellent benefits. Not-for-profit so support svcs & resources are provided sparingly. Management expected to use many self-service support programs for IT, HR, Purchasing etc. Emphasis on supporting the community with volunteering, small grants to non-profits etc. Merit based review system. Company orientation for new hires.

    Cons

    Slow growth in adding new members has resulted in weak financial results.

    Advice to Management

    More emphasis needs to be placed on the company culture & employee morale.

    Pros

    Above average salary, decent, hard working co workers

    Cons

    Above average salary requires one to do the work of many, management at all levels is poor, misleading, apathetic

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your staff. Work with your staff occasionally to understand your policies. Don't try to reinvent the wheel every two years.
