    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits and adequate pay. The doctors and nurses are highly motivated to provide great care for our members.

    Cons

    The area I work in does not understand project and program management, and this is a team of project managers. In addition the leadership team (again, just in my area) is pretty much a nightmare. Dictating, threatening, getting into detailed work instead of leading/supporting. So, just not a good place. They do not understand how to lead, basic management skills, and certainly not project/program management skills.

    Advice to Management

    This is a "we've been doing it this way forever" team and there needs to be some change on this team. I began looking for a new job 6 weeks after I started and I wanted this job to last the last 8-10 years of my full time working life.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time

    Pros

    Surrounded by smart co-workers, GREAT pay and benefits, and the focus on a work life balance including the option to work from home EVERY DAY has allowed for me to keep my sanity and morale up while on the job. My family is thrives because I work at KP. I've never been so productive and positive-minded working for any other company, as I have been at Kaiser Permanente in the I.T. office located in Colorado. I will mention also that all the various bosses I've worked for at KP in the past 9 years have always allowed me to direct my work and chose the way I'd like to get it done instead of micro-managing me. Clean, modern facilities and ample training/ tools to help one succeed at their job are more of the great perks offered. Honoring family time and allowing for PAID time off to volunteer for your community is another great perk (paid time does not come from your Vacation/ PTO allowance).

    Cons

    Can't really think of any. But if I had to nit-pick, I wish that KP would pay for tuition reimbursement for any college degree area that one would like to pursue, since college teaches you critical thinking skills regardless of the major and those learnings can be applied across many disciplines. But in this case KP will only reimburse the employee for those degrees or certificates that directly tie into your job.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the great work and please don't ever yank the learning curve safety net from under the employee. Allow for people to make mistakes and learn from them without humiliating them, docking them harshly on the evaluations or by targeting them for down-sizing (making them live in fear of being fired at any moment). I know you know this already, and that KP operates a very "safe" environment in this regard. Just reminding KP mgmt to never forget what you do WELL and please keep doing it!

    Pros

    Kaiser pays well, and has excellent benefits, I am fortunate to have received my epic certification in both core and accounts payable

    Cons

    After 20 months working at Kaiser as an epic analyst, I was indiscriminately by a manager who had been in the department for only six weeks. I was never given a reason for my termination, and to this day, I do not know the reason for my termination. I had no written or verbal warning of any kind concerning my work or my personable skills. I never received my personal belongings to this day, I was terminated in May of 2016. As an employee of Kaiser, and I will say we, my team mates were challenged to succeed, because we were not given the tool to and access to data bases, which hindered the team from meeting maximum achievement

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hour long lunch (hour and fifteen on the weekends), onsite gym and full locker rom w showers, onsite yoga classes, benefits-although you have to use kaiser for medical services

    Cons

    Volume of patients, culture of 'not my problem', little possibility of moving up the career ladder unless you've been working there a significant amount of time. People were advanced to clinical positions for which they had little clinical knowledge .. But they'd been there forever.

    Advice to Management

    Management was great
