    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (Less than a year)


    I first worked for KP for 5 years from 2009-2014 as a consultant and then recently came back as a director. The people who work at KP are incredibly kind, the benefits are amazing, workload is good, the opportunity to move around (given plenty of departments) is great... I love this place, if you can get a job here, would HIGHLY recommend it. After leaving Kaiser for a few years, I've learned to really appreciate the company, it is a gem compared to some other companies out there.Full Review
