I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The pay and benefits are good. You have an option to opt out of Kaisers benefits and receive a percentage of pay increase by doing so. There is quite a bit of training that you are allowed to take as many times as you feel the need to. Kaiser is represented by a union so the rules are really strict, but on the reverse you have to really mess up in order for them to be able to fire you. Kaiser does a lot of promoting from within. After 15 years of working with the company, upon retirement , you get lifetime benefits. The only reason I left was due to relocation.

Cons

Being part of a union, you are in trouble if you are a minute late, and will be written up after so many times. This is just one of the strict rules. You will be held accountable for your work, so it's best that you really get all you can get out of training. If you do choose to opt out of benefits, this also includes your paid vacation time. You will receive some vacation time, but it will be unpaid, including maternity leave.

Advice to Management

I had excellent management. They always asked the employees opinions and concerns.

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

    Pros

    Some areas have work life balance, other areas expect long hours. Kaiser has been laying off employees but the work grows. Hence long hours for many remaining employees.

    Cons

    Political, favoritism, management is more concerned with managing up than managing and growing their employees. Hard to move up unless you excel in politics.
    This is not the place to work if you believe that being smart, adding value and doing the right thing will help you move up in the organization. Marginal employees are constantly promoted because they are political, not because they improve the company or are good leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at your leaders and clean house. Some VPs should have been let go years ago. Lack of ethics and integrity
