    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are very friendly and there is a focus on being healthy which really helps. Employees are encouraged to take steps to be healthy which is empowering. Strong brand and a good reputation made me proud to work there.

    Cons

    Lots of growth and change and at times it seemed like there was too much happening at once.

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing and the other side of things are better. I have a great team

    Cons

    The position of the teleservice rep is very repetitive and boring. This is a job, not really a career

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for being so accommodating and encouraging. All of the managers are approachable. I am happy I chose this position

    Pros

    Good benefits. Class schedule accommodations. Excellent benefit package. Good work environment. Good worker management relationship. Highly recommended. The best job for lvn.

    Cons

    None. Don't have anything I can see that is wrong with my job. Everething is very fair. Maybe a little more lenient in tardies or call out policies.

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, great software and material support

    Cons

    The people I worked with were just evil. The seniority system and general environment at my location was encouraged by management.

    Advice to Management

    Like they are going to listen? Please, Obamacare is going to make them all rich. And will only get better for them as its fees kick in.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    We get pretty good pay for what we do. Other pharmacies are getting paid half what we are for doing the same thing. It's a union and we get awesome benefits.

    Cons

    At times understaffed. Standing on your feet all day with just 1 break. So that's 3.5 hours of work, break for an hour, and back to work for 4 hours

    Advice to Management

    If we can find a way to seat the clerks it would be tremendous. I've ran into a lot of employees who are experiencing pain and it's due to the long hours of just standing; I am one of them.

    Pros

    Focused on patient care and a very respectable insurance company in the United States. Patient membership grows every year, I love being an employee and patient. Pay is reasonable, amazing benefits even discounts, healthcare services are for the most part a "one stop shop". Terrific website to help manage your own healthcare (email your doctor, view test results, schedule appointments, etc.)

    Cons

    As an employee, leadership promotes the less deserving. Slow professional growth. Sometimes communication disconnect occurs within facility/departments. Educational opportunities that KP offers is not really clear to most employees. You either find out for yourself or know someone who has already took advantage of offerings.

    Advice to Management

    There should really be a limit towards employees who have FMLA and abuse it without being disciplined. Employees who have FMLA seem to think its a free pass to not work and still keep their employment status. This is highly unfair to other employees who show up every day to work because the work load is transferred from the unreliable down to the reliable. Sometimes you question what kind of TEAM you really got

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people. Easy work. 9-5. Extended lunch breaks. Mangers are easily accessible. Wonderful Paid Time off. Great Benefits

    Cons

    For people right out of college not really a challenging work environment. You may find it hard to move up here. I've met many people who have been in the same position or cubicle for years. Also has a very relaxed culture which is a good and bad thing.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should give more challenging projects. Also communication could be better between departments as there was some confusion on certain projects and deadlines.
