I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

A company that consistently focuses on doing the right thing for members, patients, employees, and communities. Employees are collaborative and consensus is prized. Company's mission is progressive. Employees' quality of life is an important consideration for management. Excellent benefits.

Cons

In general, you may not make as much money as you would at a for-profit healthcare company. To me, the stability, benefits, job satisfaction, and pride in the company are worth the trade-off.

Advice to Management

Do not be so excited to hire senior management from outside Kaiser.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits. Nice setting with state of the art equipment.

    Cons

    Upper management is under pressure to keep costs low, staffing is frequently short.

    Advice to Management

    Be more nurse oriented. Try not to always think of how you can cut the bottom line if you are so worried about patient satisfaction.
