I have been working at Kaiser Permanente as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

A lot of upper management is willing to meet with entry level indivdiuals or interns to provide guidance and help moving up the ladder. There is also a very diverse group of individuals working here which is always nice. KP's overal mission in keeping patients healthy and happy also correlates to how they treat their employees.

Cons

If you want to make big changes FAST it might not happen here unless you are very high up on the ladder. At times you might want to propose a new idea but actually implementing it might take time and a lot of energy due to how bureacratic it is here. But if you are resillient and are wiling to take the time to create change it is possibel but there are a lot of loops and hurdles to go through.

Advice to Management

Give more focus on the younger generation that works here. With a lot of upper management retiring, younger individuals need the right guidance and mentorship to ultimately take over their roles.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits and retirement plans. Depending on the department that you work for there are advancement opportunities. But don't get suck in the work department and you'll be there for years.

    Cons

    Low pay. Bad management. Bad direction. Low moral. Leadership team is downsizing everything and it will affect service in the corporate office as well as the hospitals.

    Advice to Management

    Quit the BS. Too many chief and not enough Indians. Stop laying off employees and hiring more managers.
