I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The people are great and the work is interesting. The pay is really good and the work is not too demanding. The concept of a physician-owned healthplan is great even if the execution of that concept isn't.

Cons

Leadership is extremely fragmented, so you'll waste a lot of time on objectives that constantly change. The company is so risk-adverse that progress is almost impossible. If you don't mind working for a company that is doomed to failure, I'd recommend this place as long as the paycheck doesn't bounce.

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits, as well as plenty of career opportunities, both lateral and advancement.

    Cons

    Work life balance can often be an issue, but as in any job, that often can be best managed by the employee as opposed to expecting the employer to do it for you.

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

    Pros

    Good employees; everyone focused on the mission. Great values.

    Cons

    Very difficult to make an impact as an employee. Executives do not lead -- too detail-oriented. President and CEO are only ones making decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Use your executive team and leverage their knowledge.
