    Pros

    Money was OK, organization is stable, benefits are good, most stable place I have worked.

    Cons

    Focus is often placed in arenas which may not be most productive. There is a gap between a traditional Kaiser leader and their non-kaiser counterpart. Many Kaiser leaders have little experience with the non-kaiser healthcare environment. There is a great deal of sensitivity to this gap so if you're applying or just accepted a job; note this fact.

    Politics, "saying the right thing and understanding when not to say anything at all", are key to maintaining employment; however, this is true with many big organizations which are insulated from the extreme consequences of decisions or non-decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Current Paradigm - It's not what is stated but how it is stated - must change. How a message is communicated must become irrelevant. Many senior leaders choose to ignore what they don't understand in a message. To defend themselves from the perception of incompetence, they will attack the messengers delivery. People in leadership are scared. Many leaders are playing catch up with their knowledge base. It's leaving them vulnerable to complete departmental breakdowns when key reports depart.

    This gap is also creating stress and communication breakdowns with reports. Many individuals are afraid to communicate in meetings. A great deal of fear is driven by stating ideas or assessments which leadership may not understand. If leadership does not understand the message it often leads to a retaliatory behavior towards the "offending" messenger.
