    I worked at Kaiser Permanente

    Pros

    It was really nice working for them. I gained many experiences and learned a lot from there. It was also nice to be a part of a growing team!

    Cons

    I wasn't given enough responsibilities. I didn't feel like I could grow within the company, either, even though I really wish I did.
