I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Well marketed company image, great benefits package, KP makes positive statements like "we support work-life balance". Cool healthcare image promoted to help employees feel good about their mission.

Cons

Huge organization, with complicated matrix management structure.
"Work life balance" in only applies to executive ranks and above, and to some administrative staff.
Conflicting priorities and constant reorganization.
Entrenched internal political parties.
Management fosters backstabbing.
Hierarchy is important, facts are not.
Recent "behaviors" weighted performance feedback system requires groupthink and punishes innovtion.
Compliance / HR hotline has limited integrity and is easily thwarted by the management about whom a complaint may be made.

Advice to Management

Look more closely at executives and directors who say they exceeded their performance goals and never take accountability for failures in their control that they mis-attributed to the levels below them.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente as an intern

    Pros

    I enjoyed working here because i learned a lot and had the pleasure of working with great managers. Also enjoyed the travel.

    Cons

    After my internship there was no path that could lead to a potential full time job. There needs to be a program in place that allows for this.
