    Pros

    The benefits are really good for those who have families. It doesn't cost anything to insure yourself and your family and the copays are only 25 dollars I think. IF you and your spouse work for Kaiser then you have 'dual coverage' which means that you don't pay anything for medications and doctors visits. This makes healthcare for a Kaiser family very very very very cheap. They have a lot of hospitals around the inland Emprire and the Los Angeles area. Overall it is a good place to work and provides decent opportunity to move around in the organization in the region.

    Cons

    It is a very bureacratic organization. Everything is painfully slow.

    Advice to Management

    Get out to the medical centers and see what is happening.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Stable job. Nice benefits. Relaxed working environments.
    Lots of vacation days especially for those who have worked more than 10 years.
    And reasons to be ineffective and lazy.

    Cons

    My comments below are not on the doctors and nursers.
    They are pretty good and actually KP's patient care system is very good.

    Many people are working very inefficient, partly due to their intelligence, partly due to their laziness.
    A simple thing can take them weeks or months or never gets done.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit good people and pay them well rather than hire more incompetent people.
