I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than a year)

Pros

It's a safe and stable environment to develop yourself. There is hardly any office politics going on because the culture is all about inclusivity and equality. Mistakes are usually viewed as opportunities for improvement.

Cons

Projects always take longer than expected to finish because at least one important player in the delivery of the work is on vacation at any given time, due to the generous vacation benefits given to employees, especially for those who have stuck around a pretty long time.

I also end up worrying about being recognized for my efforts. Some colleagues put in the minimal time and leave. I sometimes stay late to do extra work. However I feel as if we are all still treated the same by management. It disincentives putting one's nose to the grindstone.

Advice to Management

Managers always declare they are open to change, yet not all ideas seem to be welcome. Make the criteria clear so you don't appear hypocritical.

    Awesome benefits, great employees, welcoming environment, always room for advancement

    More locations for Medical Centers and actual Hospitals would be nice.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate well with your employees and also provide feedback and welcome it at all levels. Positivity is contagious and word of mouth is the best way to promote a great place to work. Happy employees = great productivity

    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.
