Pros

You will have excellent benefits with decent pay, including medical, dental, vision, pension and a great, progressive time off package; the work can be quite fascinating, with your contribution having a positive impact; you will work for a company trying to do good for the community; there is an emphasis on work/life balance in many departments. In addition to all this, Kaiser Permanente is large and is located in many regions... its possible to move to a new city, take a new job, and retain your benefits at the level you left your last job. We have sites in Hawai'i, Oregon, California, Colorado, Ohio and Washington, D.C., to name a few.

Cons

Non-existent telecommuting options in some professional departments.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work! You seem to be paying attention... the workforce is changing; top-down management is (almost) done; open communication is respected and expected; we'll collaborate in new and less-controlled ways, and we'll do it more often... even with our members. Don't be afraid to embrace these changes!

    Pros

    Benefits are good and environment is supportive of work-life balance. There are many opportunities because of the size of the company. It is fairly easy to shine if you are even remotely competent. Recognition and feedback on performance is positive.

    Cons

    It is really challenging to accomplish anything of value. IT Processes are designed to stop work from progressing. Tools provided do not support productivity. Politics wastes a lot of time and money. Culture is consensus based making relationships difficult. Low salaries equate to less than a stellar talent pool. Senior leadership has not been effective in changing the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to change processes the prevent productivity. Provide tools that support the work and stop the back-room deals.
