    Pros

    Great benefits, great hours, great staff. There is a ton of opportunity to move within this company. Very happy employee

    Cons

    I don't have any cons, i enjoy being an employee for this company. From a member perspective, it would be nice if they offered a clinic that was open later for employees who work 9-5.

    Advice to Management

    Continue being great. You are all very encouraging and so willing to help. Please open a clinic for us that can't make it to the doctors during work hours.

    Thank you for your feedback! Good news if you will be moving to the new Renton location, we are hoping to have an employee clinic there! More to come!

    Pros

    Community based, diverse employee population

    Cons

    Not always in the know about what's happening with leadership's decisions

    Advice to Management

    Made a good choice to be acquired by KP. Hopefully able to continue the spirit of local community even though part of a larger group.

    Pros

    the Salary was above average for this position in the area. The benefits were better than most companies in the area as well.

    Cons

    Environment changed - they went to a system where every persons desk had to be set up exactly the same - they literally came around and used tape to mark your desk where your keyboard, 10 key, box of tissues, everything went. NO THANKS!

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees as individuals, not like nameless robots who cant think for themselves. When you trust in your employees and treat the like people you will get better results

    I worked at Group Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I had a lot of opportunities to grow in many areas within my field. Most people were kind with a strong sense of mission. Overall a good organization to start your career if you're a fast learner. Although I had other opportunities in the past, I stayed for a long time because of friends at work.

    Cons

    Group Health could not change fast enough with the times and was acquired by Kaiser. In the last few years was high turnover, low morale, high stress and brain drain. Many friends left, their positions were not back filled, left us to pick up the work. Eventually several more of us left for jobs nearby for better growth opportunities, which is abundant in the puget sound.

    Advice to Management

    I think Kaiser change will be good. For several years, not much was done keep the smartest people. Some managers run their org like it's 1979. You need a full turnaround by a new set of leaders.

    great starting pay & benefits if you can get time off work to utilize them

    more one on ones on a consistent basis

    Pros

    Great benefits, small enough company to still be fun to work at, open and welcoming atmosphere. Great new campus in Renton, too!

    Cons

    The investment in IT solutions for Disaster Recovery has not been sufficient over the years. Hopeful that with Kaiser coming on board that will improve.

    Advice to Management

    Management for me has been great and I've had several different managers here already. All were supportive and just... good. Advice: keep it up.
