I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time for more than a year

Pros

The pay and benefits are good. You have an option to opt out of Kaisers benefits and receive a percentage of pay increase by doing so. There is quite a bit of training that you are allowed to take as many times as you feel the need to. Kaiser is represented by a union so the rules are really strict, but on the reverse you have to really mess up in order for them to be able to fire you. Kaiser does a lot of promoting from within. After 15 years of working with the company, upon retirement , you get lifetime benefits. The only reason I left was due to relocation.

Cons

Being part of a union, you are in trouble if you are a minute late, and will be written up after so many times. This is just one of the strict rules. You will be held accountable for your work, so it's best that you really get all you can get out of training. If you do choose to opt out of benefits, this also includes your paid vacation time. You will receive some vacation time, but it will be unpaid, including maternity leave.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I had excellent management. They always asked the employees opinions and concerns.

    Pros

    There are a lot of growing opportunities. They have a rich benefit package which includes vacation, life balance, and sick time off.

    Cons

    It is a union job and when wanting to promote to a union position, at times they will consider the person with seniority versus the one that is more knowledgeable.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent health plan. Overall job security. Country-wide enterprise provides for opportunity to advance career. Company is committed to employee health and work / life balance.

    Cons

    Typical troubles found in all large corporations. Size of corporation precludes ability to be nimble. Too large a middle management structure. In-fighting and ivory tower syndrome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to increase and enhance communication ability, particularly between departments. The individual needs to be able to see the big picture and grasp why it's important to them.
