Does Kaiser Permanente have a pension plan?

Pros

Great healthcare benefits and a pension plan still exists.

Cons

I think this varies widely by department, but it seems that colleagues will step on one another to get ahead. My male colleagues would advocate for me and champion my ideas, but my female colleagues would talk over me or embarrass me in front of internal clients whenever possible. My female boss who was older by at least a decade(who has since returned to the company after being managed out) took me aside to let me know that letting my naturally wavy, ethnic hair be wavy was unprofessional and I needed to straighten it. She also put me on notice that I needed to wear more makeup under the guise of “helping” me. She took credit for work that was well-received but wouldn’t hesitate to throw various team members (including me) under the bus if the work didn’t meet the client’s needs due to her misdirection. There definitely was an “in” group of white women, and as a woman of color I certainly wasn’t allowed in. I’ve since left the company and haven’t encountered this type of mean girls culture elsewhere. Thank goodness most other employers have more collaborative, supportive cultures for women of color.

Advice to Management

Please recognize when your female leaders are sharpening their claws on their younger, less experienced direct reports. Not only are they not cultivating talent, they are doing what they can to tear other people down for their own gain.
