I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great benefits - while I was there there was a very flexible work schedule. Working remotely once a week was very common for employees. Lots of opportunities for advancement or moving to a different department. My management team was awesome - very supportive and intelligent.

Cons

Many employees are able to skate by without doing much. The employee reviews weren't closely tied to bonuses. Very bureaucratic! Took forever to get many things done.

Advice to Management

Make employee reviews more closely tied to bonuses...incentivize them to actually work hard.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people there are friendly and, for the most part, supportive. I've had a great experience working there, and I've been able to make a big difference in the "KP way," even as a contractor.

    Cons

    Rapid growth and recent re-orgs have cause disruptions in the resources. But I like and admire our new VP, and I like where his vision is leading. Lack of documented processes, process reviews, and centralized information makes job functions difficult at times.
