I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Great work life balance
Excellent benefits and generally great people
Employee pride in working for a high quality healthcare company

Cons

Generally there is not much opportunity for career progression and growth. Professional development resources are not made available to all employee levels and only some are invited to participate in career development opportunities. Management is not always interested in your career path or progress. Such a large company that change is glacial at best.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Honestly and earnestly support your employees. Do not become complacent because you don't want to rock the boat. Learn to support risk and innovation. Gain trust in each other and with your direct reports. Ditch the Kaiser Nod.

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    As a contractor I was capped to an 8-hour day, so wildly fluctuating schedules were not an issue. Middle management was open to process innovation and technical input. We were given the tools and infrastructure to get our jobs done effectively. People pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Endless meetings, most of which had nothing to do with my job description. On a minor note, it was interesting that Kaiser worked on the Friday after Thanksgiving, when the rest of America was seemingly gone 'til Monday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have meetings "Southwest Airlines" style—everybody standing up. They'll be over in 20 minutes, will discourage idle digressions, and will be a tonic to sitting all day.
