Approves of CEO

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.
