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

Pros

Great medical benefits if you need them. However, considering most employees don't stay to geriatric age, it's a waste if your young and healthy.

Cons

Most of upper management comes from no supervisory or leadership background so when it comes to begin a success leader, they truly flail.

Advice to Management

Lose your ego's. Understand that some of your employees can contribute. If you have a complaint with an employee, remember it's your organization who hired them in the first place.

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

    Pros

    I would say Kaiser offers the BEST pay out there. You won't find any other job, beside government job, who will pay you lots of money.

    Most job openings are internal hiring so that is really good.

    You make good friends

    Cons

    Because they know you cannot find a job anywhere else with this pay, management can test you like crap. I had a boss who hated me and seriously drew me to quit.

    I did not like answering phones all day, especially since lots of members will cuss you out.

    Since they accept mediCal, so many patients will seriously treat you like you work for them, which technically you do.

    Advice to Management

    Lead your employees in a correct way. Don't abuse your power cause thy really makes your employees talk crap about you behind your back.
