    I worked at Kaiser Permanente

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and salary including pension

    Cons

    Mismatch between supervision and the employees they supervise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Supervisors should have like credentials as those they supervise,I.e., social workers should not supervise nurse practitioners

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, variety, and care. I work with some of the best people, not just clinicians, in the world. We are encouraged and rewarded to walk at lunch every day. Thrive is a culture. It is hard to get such a large group of people to take a break, but most do, to the benefit of employees and patients. Many really do walk the walk.

    Cons

    Such a large organization will have warts. Unavoidable, but frustrating. Always busy, which could be a pro.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people. More good people.

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

    Pros

    High level of nursing skill. I learned a lot. Very professional atmosphere.

    Cons

    The call center was in another state. Patients were very upset that we couldn't talk to them directly when they would first call with a question.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good leadership on the local level but corporate would make changes that were not the best for the patient.
