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

Pros

Employees are set up for success. The mission/vision of the organization are second to none. I have a lot of pride regarding the fact that I work for this great organization.

Cons

There is a vast variety of management styles throughout the organization, so different people can have very different experiences as people work for people first. As long as people are interviewing the interviewers as much as they are being interviewed, they can ensure they are aligning themselves with a manager who possess the style that is best for them.

    Pros

    great overall culture and great staff to work with

    Cons

    can be very political ... sometimes upper management got their who knows how

    Advice to Management

    trust your employees; try not to pit your subordinates against each other to keep work output high

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    NOTE: Worked at company HQ in Oakland.
    Good office location, close to downtown Oakland, Lake Merritt, BART, and other transit options.
    Great people who truly care about their company's mission. My boss brightened up an otherwise boring job.
    Enjoyed weekly email "Messages from the CEO." He seems to truly care, as well.

    Cons

    NOTE: Worked at company HQ in Oakland.
    Limited outlets for creativity.
    Claustrophobic work environment full of cubicles, artificial light, and secluded offices. You'd think a health-focused company would place higher value on employee health & happiness at the office...
    Tightening budgets appear to be limiting opportunities for innovation and concentrating funding on core services.
    Very bureaucratic at times. Old systems (think pre-digital) can make it difficult to find the information you need. But I know they're trying to digitize the massive business...

    Advice to Management

    Remember that the "Thrive" campaign mission can apply to employees, too.
