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

    Pros

    Great co-workers, benefits, okay compensation

    Cons

    Managers who micromanage and don't listen to what staff has to say. Think they know it all, but is not very finance savvy. Keep workers on who do not have 30% workload and have to listen to them gossiping all day long. HR has a do nothing attitude

  3. "KP offers excellent benefits, but opportunities for advancement and pay raises are few and far between"

    Pros

    Benefits, Work-Life balance, flexibility, job security, gems exist in this organization

    Cons

    Oddly, very few opportunities for advancement. "It's always been done this way" attitude. If you're non-union, it's like pulling teeth to get any pay raises above the annual or standard 1%-4% "cost of living" raise. Decisions are made by management without a knowledgeable understanding of daily operations and impact on workforce (in their own departments!). Management gets to choose who completes their 360 evaluations on their own team - it used to be the entire department/team.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job at retaining good employees. Listen to the feedback provided by employees at the end of every year and take action.
