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

    Pros

    Great benefits, especially comprehensive health care and retirement, PTO, employee discounts on certain goods and services such as theme parks and 24 Hour Fitness gym memberships. There is also a lot of opportunity for movement and growth because of the sheer size of the company. If you are motivated and ambitious, there is likely a career path for you.

    Cons

    Employees can have vastly different experiences depending on where and for whom they work. Wide range of management/leadership skill.
    In my experience, when a department needs to downsize, there is no effort by KP leadership to keep good, productive staff in the organization by helping them find new opportunities. They lose very good people that way, by just focusing on their immediate bottom line.
    It is very difficult to get hired on through the regular application process on the KP Careers website; it's much more likely to get hired by going through a contracting agency.

    Advice to Management

    Consider helping good, productive employees within downsizing departments find new opportunities in KP, instead of just kicking them out of the organization.
