    Pros

    KP is a great company with excellent benefits and ability to move around the organization. Many of the leaders are true heroes within healthcare and wellness.

    Cons

    Highly bureaucratic and some departments are quite toxic. Some departments and positions are difficult to get out of. You can become pigeonholed and stuck. Work/life balance is not always present in all department. Some wring you dry. Make sure to find a department that is a good cultural fit and offers what you need for your career path.
