    Pros

    When taken benefits into account, Kaiser Permanente is probably one of the top three healthcare providers to work for in California. I was comfortably making around $140,000 a year when I left. My job was exempt and I did have weekends off

    Cons

    Exempt jobs at Kaiser Permanente pay well. But you are always going to work well over 40 hours a week. It has become the culture there. If you need time off because of a dental appointment or doctors appointment your manager can make life very difficult by asking for a note . They will even ask you to work after your appointment. Over the past decade management has had fewer leaders with clinical experience which has had an affect on morale and work life balance. Current upper management is the MBA type in which the only thing that matters is the bottom line. Workers morale and workers rights are not even a consideration anymore. Which is very unfortunate because For a brief time in the early 2000s Kaiser Permanente could have taken a different tack and truly been the leader in quality healthcare and led the way in treating their employees well. But leadership Chose the easy pass of “well all the other companies are cutting back why can’t we“? And that mantra of bringing Kaiser back to the pack persists today. The old timers who have at least a decade in aren’t gonna leave because the retirement benefits are good. But folks with less than a decade would probably follow my lead and find a much more rewarding less stressful workplace for just a little bit less pay.
