    Pros

    When it comes to benefits KP is generous, great health plan coverage for employees and families, generous PTO, bonuses, tuition reimbursement, work arrangements. KP encourages training and expansion of skills and lots of opportunities in that area are provided.

    Cons

    The company structure is a matrix which causes issues when committing resources for project work. Lots of political red tape between the three entities (Kaiser Foundation, Health Plan and TPMG). Some days it feels more like working an active mine field. If you can tolerate that and see beyond Kaiser's mission, there is great work under way.
