Pros

Great benefits, longevity - people tend to stay at TPMG for a long time, layoffs are rare or non-existent, work with some really intelligent folks - the docs, learn a lot about the healthcare industry - since TPMG is the physician arm of Kaiser Permanente - you have access to data from a fully integrated model

Cons

Longevity - people who have been with the org for 10, 20, 30 years are not likely to change or effect change; slow bureacracy; leadership - some good and others not so good - org does not effectively get rid of those not good - at best, just shuffles them

Advice to Management

- More collaboration between the medical group and KFH/HP
- Leadership - get rid of those who cannot lead and don't shuffle them into other positions which they will also fail
