    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    great benefits and great pay. good time off accumulation

    Cons

    I know some people hate it here but for me it was the opposite. I started off as a temp for about almost a year and that was really the only con for me but once i was hired permanently I loved it. I guess people's experience really depends on what department you're in but for me personally, I love Kaiser and I don't want to leave here.

    Flexibility, can work remote twice a week, can come in when I want and work as late as I want. Good bonus, low cost health insurance and really diverse and inclusive culture.

    Could focus more resources on technology and finding new ways to compete technically.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the people who have been there for years, it's good to have a good mix in your department of fresh minds and those with institutional knowledge.
