No opinion of CEO

I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Excellent benefit packages, pay for performance, team-oriented and collective responsibility.

Cons

Physicians dictate direction of organization and sometimes allowed to be disrespectful to staff, too much policy/procedure which impedes progress, too many new ideas/programs so becomes difficult to focus on one thing well.

Advice to Management

Change the organizational culture and you'll increase morale.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice working environment if you belong to the "IN" crowd...

    Cons

    Management lacks technical experience. Lots of money wasted on projects that go nowhere.. Tons of offshoring and listening to unknowledgable people to determine what types of technical products to invest in. Sleep on the job and say yes to everything and you should have no problems joining the ranks of management here.. Promotions are given by social popularity.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the bottlenecks. Demand better performance from front line managers. Some are falling asleep on the job literally..
