I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Excellent pay and benefits

Cons

The Kaiser system does not care about patients only $$. Staff is shut down when they bring concerns to management so no one says anything anymore. There is no work/life balance, most staff is on overload and stressed out. No communication between management and staff. Decisions made by management and then changed the next week, no consistency or transparency.

Advice to Management

Read any of the "cons" and take what you will.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits such as health insurance, 401k, and pension

    Cons

    Although the mission to strive for change, the culture does not support change. Any constructive criticism is ignored. System is very inefficient and disorganized. Members complain about their health care delivery and it is very dissatisifying. Evidence based medicine is not practiced. You are basically catering to members and admitting patients for social reasons and not acutely worsening medical issues. You do more clerical and busy work than any other job I have ever worked in. Doctors do the discharge appointments and all the reappariations or transfers. No room for autonomy.

    Advice to Management

    Use resources more wisely because wasted resources and disorganization is why the organization is in debt. Listen to your employees and try to make their work conditions better and listen to the members/patients and provide faster health care delivery. Make opportunities for career advancement. Need to make all providers have the same schedule and responsibilities; no nepotism or favoritism. Lack of communication and professionalism will be your downfall.
