    Pros

    Kaiser Permanente is a rather large organization in CA with satellite offices in several regions throughout the US. California is the largest region and therefore the largest employer. There are many opportunities within KP to work, but finding out a career path is entirely up to you once you're in the door. There's lots to learn, management really depends on who you work for, and upper management is going through a changing of the guard. Bad performers used to stay on forever, but management is starting to weed them out with the first re-org in years (2009). Non-profit organization so no stock options but benefits are heavily subsidized.

    Cons

    Experience with management varies greatly. Very difficult to get your foot in the door. Once you're in though, there are many other departments and areas to transition to. Moving around is harder than you think, though. Opportunities are limited in San Diego but greatest in Oakland and Burbank. Lots of IT opportunities but also a recent re-org and takeover by a vendor eliminated a good number of positions as well.

    Advice to Management

    Stronger, clearer vision and leadership. Fairer rewarding system (there's a forced curve on performance -- so only 10% of us can get high high marks). Improve on employee recognition, give flexible working schedules in lieu of monetary compensation when asked.

    Pros

    Stable organization with good pay and great benefits. The people are also what make this a great place to work.

    Cons

    The pace of change is very slow. I compare it to large government agencies.

    Advice to Management

    Run the company as if depended on profit
