I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great mission that builds on its roots and commitment to what's right. Financially conservative in some ways, which leads to relative job stability. People here truly care.

Cons

Management in marketing is not so great. Many poor hiring decisions at executive level have led to turnover at mid-to-senior level management level. Mid-level management misbehavior is tolerated too long without being addressed. Staff feels lack of vision, other than that we need to save money and work more efficiently.

Advice to Management

Give equal value to seasoned ("legacy") folks and newer folks with varied experience. The old way alone will no longer work, but moving forward without valuing historical knowledge will sink us. Truly empower us and don't treat us like children with management theory cliches (this mesage to a select few)
