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

    Pros

    I've been working for Group Health Sales for a couple years and can't say that I've ever been happier with any other employer. It's a very caring organization from the top down. Even with the restructuring going due to the Kaiser Permanente acquisition, management old and new seem to have the employees best interests in mind. New opportunities and enhancements for members and employees seem to be on the horizon.

    Cons

    None substantial enough to write about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Transparency about incoming changes is key.

    Competitive Salaries, great opportunities for development, Education assistance and work life balance.

    As with many other companies, Upper Management is completely out of touch with real life goals. Some goals are impossible to implement due to the nature of the work.

    Come and work in the office or as a receptionist for a day to see what is possible and what isn't.

    There is no work life balance. You have to define that on your own, even though the culture accepts that you work to the ground.

    Advice to Management

    Stop saying, “there is no budget” to support your consulting and project management staff. They are the heart of the business.
