    Good pay, great benefits. Coworkers are all fantastic.

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

    Pros

    My web development Manager, on the business side, is fantastic and everyone within the organization really supports and listens to each other. There seems to be an open way of allowing people to grow and use their strengths, for example as a developer I was encouraged to learn the backend markup through provided training courses as well as different testing scripts. Every day at this job offers new challenges that are easily conquered with a wonderful support network. Also the benefits are fantastic.

    Cons

    Onboarding can be daunting for the non-medical employees, there is a lot to cover, and getting access to all the proper sites, development tools took longer than expected.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You have paid benefits for you, your children, and your family. Anything not used is given to you in your pay check. They have weeks for all their employees besides just having a nurse week. They take care of us. Great sick system, paid vacations.

    Cons

    The fact that even though almost all of Colorado has closed when it snow storms, but we still have to come outside makes me a little irritated

    Advice to Management

    I get you have a job to do, but do not micro manage. Also learn how to sympathize and have empathy when someone is going through something.

    Great work-life balance, friendly boss, free healthcare

    Pros

    The starting pay and annual raises are great. The work atmosphere was very friendly. Training was awesome and thorough. Hours were great.

    Pros

    Benefits for a job well done. Surveys from members are encouraged for feedback. Union based. Shift bids for senority. Raises yearly. Company events. Great employee discounts.

    Cons

    Promoting friends over education and experience
    Degrees don't count for Team Management positions
    Clicks( leads giving friends extra time off phones) over knowledge of job with leads on floor.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know frontline employees and encourage job promotion based on willingness to be promoted.
    Watchdog those that are pretending to know the job
    Allow those that want special projects the chance to help out vs giving to favorites of office.
    Micromanaging certain tasks so others can not benefit from learning tasks.
