I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

KP is full of heart. We are a non-profit organization with a passionate commitment to health for all - where you live. The culture is cheerful and community oriented. The benefits are simply amazing, especially relating to employer covered health care benefits. KP is one of the few places that still provides pension benefits, as well.

Cons

Working your heart out often means working harder than "the other guy" (our competitors), which might be extra hours or might be getting more done in the same amount of time. KP is a pretty gossipy culture. Be careful of your reputation.

Advice to Management

Find a better way to assess how many FTE an area needs.

    Pros

    KP is very mission-driven. And it's a place that lets many people interpret its mission in their own way, which is good in that many people can align their passions with the organization's mission. There are lots and lots of outstanding, talented people at every level of the organization, and amazing resources.

    Cons

    The down side of letting people interpret the mission in their own way is that there is frequently lack of alignment on the core work to be done, and the organization tends to be very, very process-heavy in trying to get everyone aligned and working toward the same objectives. And these in turn makes KP less than nimble -- much less -- and often means that good ideas and good projects are left only half-implemented.

    Advice to Management

    Finish getting the organizational decision making streamlined and strengthened. The recent changes at the top are terrific; now they need to be carried throughout the organization.
