    "Job satisfaction is location-driven, results slowed by bureaucracy, IT lags (even with Health Connect) good benefits."

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits. Opportunities for advancement. Some leaders really do believe in the cause.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, too many chiefs and not enough indians. Not enough orientation to tools and systems and how to navigate KP as a new employee. Tension between entities (health plan, hospitals and medical group) is palpable and often conveys conflicting strategic messages. Promotion opportunties are more like popularity contests. Labor/Management "partnership" creates tension and "us against them" mentality despite its noble objectives. Resentment of Regional/National" office among facility management and staff needs to be better managed.

    Advice to Management

    Just because it worked in one region, doesn't mean it works somewhere else. There should be more Labor represented in Executive Management levels. Culture and perceptions of culture is locally driven. Give more autonomy to local leaders and managers to control their units. Resentment of Regional/National" office among facility management and staff needs to be better managed. A long way to go to get IT Systems up to level of other companies in the area.

    I like to see communication from Sr. Managers to front line staff improve.
