Pros

Positive work environment. Good growth opportunities. Great PTO system and benefits. It's a secure place to work - - people really don't worry about their jobs and long as they are doing their best. Kaiser Permanente is also a leader in innovation through our on-line medical records and research. It makes you proud to work for a company that is stepping out as leaders in our country.

Cons

Too much work. Trying to keep costs down means fewer employees do more work. I also feel that Kaiser embraces a little too much diversity by crossing ethical lines. I'm all for gender and cultural diversity. I do not support flaunting gay rights - meaning that I'm very tolerant of working alongside gay people but calling out they they are gay and giving them special recognition isn't good.

Advice to Management

Apply work life balance to yourselves and to employees - not just to members.

    Pros

    The leadership of the Kaiser Foundation Health Plan is aggressively working towards advancing the reputation of the overall organization. KP's unique organizational structure has proven to be an effective solution in providing cost efficient healthcare in the long history and evolution of the industry. The organization is in an active phase of reinventing itself in all aspects by stimulating creativity and the freedom to "think outside of the box". The opportunities are significant to leverage KP's strengthes in the market place, thrusting it as a forerunner in the race to solve the nation's healthcare problems. Evidence of the continued evolution of KP's Health Plan proves that it is right on target with the rest of the organization to awaken the industry, the public and even the government as being an effective solution in today's healthcare crisis.

    Cons

    Change in culture needs to continue embracing new, fresh perspectives and not get so bogged down with historical ways of doing business. New blood continues to be infused throughout the organization with positive results surfacing everyday. Resistance to change is diminishing. New leadership is infusing a mindset towards openness and creativity. However, "politicing" still continues to damper forward progress in the reengineering process of a new culture. Slow but sure evidence is pointing to the rewards of testing new ideas both tactical and strategical. The well established organization is very large and it will take time for the changes in culture to permiate across all discipline boundaries.

    Advice to Management

    Promote & leverage unique organization structure as successful market solution for providing the most cost efficient accessable healthcare and a very rewarding place for career growth, advancement and job satisfaction.
