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

    Pros

    Great benefits, great healthcare provider. Nice working environment and intellegent co-workers/employees.

    Cons

    Indifferent management, pay is low for staff - excessive for management. They outsource and hire contractors instead of FTEs to save costs. Use 'callibration' for assigning performance review ratings by people you don't even work for - so "favored" employees get raises and bonuses, while others get short changed.

    Advice to Management

    Watch your managers who hire only friends and relatives. And truly reward staff and the "worker bees" for their long hours and hard work.


  2. "World class health care delivery system."

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Focused on building and maintaining the health of the population they serve. Data and outcomes driven. Willing to change practice based on evidence. Good deal of respect and credence paid to those with clinical backgrounds. Innovative. Very attuned to labor. Some of senior leadership are visionary and motivating.

    Cons

    It's big. Easy to get lost in the shuffle, or to understand your part. Occasionally, business gets in the way of care delivery. Decisions made at corporate levels sometimes don't work on the ground, yet the organization is slow to recognize it. Tendency to take on to many things at once, resulting in an unclear understanding of priorities. Very attuned to labor. Some of senior leadership are very difficult, and honestly don't know what they are doing, yet remain because those who report to them prop them up.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of Oakland and Pasadena a little more often. Stop being so impressed with "Kaiser". Look at other parts of the industry. Insist on staff and physicians who are committed to their patients. Quit tolerating poor performance from some, just because it may be risky to address the problem. Consider the message being offered by contrary voices.
