I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I first worked for KP for 5 years from 2009-2014 as a consultant and then recently came back as a director. The people who work at KP are incredibly kind, the benefits are amazing, workload is good, the opportunity to move around (given plenty of departments) is great... I love this place, if you can get a job here, would HIGHLY recommend it. After leaving Kaiser for a few years, I've learned to really appreciate the company, it is a gem compared to some other companies out there.

Cons

Moves slow and can be political -- but you can learn to work around this, everything else about KP makes up for this.

Advice to Management

Thank you for investing in your people, keep doing that. Try to make things more fluid in the organization so positive change can be made quicker.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    work from home >50% of time

    Cons

    Very political. Be ready to micro-managed beyond anything you've ever imagined. Kaiser tries to tell people to take risks and stand out - but if you do - be read to get thrown under the bus and blamed for everything.

    Advice to Management
