    The structure and they take care of their employees. It's a great company that not only cares for their employees but also the patients.

    Needs more communication from management to lower levels. Office politics are always going but where is it not.

    Great benefits; great mission

    Current Employee - Manager in Sacramento, CA (US)
    Current Employee - Manager in Sacramento, CA (US)

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I truly believe in how this company is trailblazing innovation in the healthcare industry by focusing on prevention since there is no financial incentive for our members to get sick. Salaries are average but healthcare benefits and 401K match are excellent. Love the partnership between management and labor; good ideas from front line staff travel upward and are often adopted.

    Cons

    Doesn't provide too many perks like free food and/or coffee, onsite gyms and holiday parties

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a leaf from the Silicon Valley playbook and make KP a more fun place to work.

    Pros

    KP truly cares about their employees. Great benefits. Great diversity. Kaiser's internal values match their external messages. Their focus is on health and well being of people. Great opportunities to make a difference in health care delivery.

    Cons

    Large & complex organization which is a mixed blessing. It takes both knowledge of process and culture to get things done in a timely way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't rest on past health care achievements.

    KP is on the cutting edge of developing better ways to deliver health care. This company has great benefits for it's employees. They have a supportive employee wellness program for a not-for-profit company that's workforce has many unions.

    There are many different unions. Work hours are not flexible for non-union employees who don't impact patient care.
