Pros

Great company, great benefits, stable.

Cons

Easy to get pigeon-holed in a position because there isn't a clear
Career path. Poor marketing leadership on the national and local level.

Advice to Management

Value your people, provide good training so they can stay relevant to their industry. Listen to your employees, they understand the day-to-day aspects of the job.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The benefits are good, the pay is pretty good. If you are a doctor, you should work here, they really really take care of the doctors.

    Cons

    The growth opportunities are limited if you are not in a clinical field. I feel like I will have more room to grow at another company in the financial or technology industry.

    Advice to Management

    I think they are moving in the right direction. Healthcare is changing quickly, and Kaiser Permanente is trying to compete with smaller more maneuverable companies. The initiatives they have set leverage Kaiser's size and business model, and aim to position Kaiser favorably as US Healthcare changes.

    "Enjoyed the people I worked with, dissappointed with communication from mid-level leaders."

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Kaiser is full of people who really care.

    Cons

    Rewards were few and far between. Mid-level leadership is out of touch with rest of staff. Little to no opportunity to attend conferences or educational sessions. Advancement opportunities only for those in the right crowd.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be better communication with all staff. Need to get away from management (us) and staff (them). Need to provide opportunities for advancement and personal growth.
