    It's a challenge to utilize the tuition reimbursement. Kaiser should have a program that pats off student loans for employees

    You can get benefits even as a part time employee - that's almost unheard of in this country.

    If you work for a union then you have only $5 copays for everything, a nice 401k that Kaiser matches what you put in, good dental, and good vacation/sick leave.

    good benefits, pension package and company match; 10 years to get vested in southern california, 5 years to get vested in most other kaiser permanente sites.

    Great health benefits and 401k. Paid time off is generous compared to other companies, and becomes much better the longer you are with the company.

    The best benefit was the pension plan but it was reduced and now poor at best. Reduced bonus structure has definitely soured the environment. Health Care option is limited to Kaiser and no other options available. I don't believe this is a benefit with a value associated to it. Kaiser can say they offer a pension plan or retirement but it doesn't count unless there is value. In Kaiser's case they are trying to check the boxes. My specific ratings are relative to value.
