No passion to lead, innovate
Not managed as a genuine business enterprise (no concept of ROI...at all, or cost.)

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    As a one stop shop for health insurance, physicians / staff, and facilities with over 50 years of medical data Kaiser Permanente can truly focus on positive outcomes and make people thrive.

    Cons

    The not-for-profit environment can be sluggish to move and cause challenges for candidates who want a fast paced work environment.

    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.
