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

Pros

KP has a strong social mission which appealed to my previous experience in non-profits.
I've been able to wear multiple hats in multiple locations.
You can move as fast or as slow as you want in your career, there are always opportunities to move up.

Cons

Often, the salary might not be comparable with the for profit world. There is a trade off between the stability of the job and the rich benefit package with the higher salary you might be able to command outside the organization.
The organization sometimes tolerates individual behavior that is not conducive to a high performing team.

Advice to Management

Listen to the advice of the front line people, they understand the job.
Get rid of employees who don't have the appropriate people skills, regardless of whether they achieve results or not. It does more damage to the organization when you keep them. There are others out there in the job market that can achieve the same results and not leave a trail of devastation behind them.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Job Security, Politics are not as 'cutthroat' as many other large corporations

    Cons

    Technology in all areas outside of Healthcare is 5-10 years behind the curve. Regions and functional areas run 'autonomously', so there's limited economies of scale. Tech is beginning to outsource too much.
