    Pros

    Kaiser medical are doing amazing things. I believe that upper management are visionaries tha have plans to greatly improve the lives of its subscribers.

    Cons

    Kaiser IT in Pleasanton is another story, They put 5-7 contractors in a single room, and can fit 2-3 in a closet (literally an IT closet).There is no airflow and hard to work with so much noise and distractions, Yet you are given unrealistic goals and never communicated to. Basically the ITAM program manager works full time on the East coast so you rarely see her, Worse is that she will post a job that says 6 months or 1 year and will often not honor it. This is because of poor planning and strategic direction. The Program manger relies on a few people who have their own selfish intentions to "create issues" and doesn't listen to the operational team. Worse I have seen her put down the operational team in many meetings. So often people on the project team have to feel like they have to "save" the operational team and the operational team hates that these project people come in and ask the same questions over and over. The strategy changes on a weekly basis. It's confusing and not pleasant. Projects close, open and morph about and reasons are rarely communicated to all. They have no problem humiliating contractors, making you work over 8 hours but telling you "no one EVER claims over 8 hours a day", putting you in a dark dingy place then cutting your contract early.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Save hundreds of thousands of dollars. End the ITAM Project. Keep the good operational people that will ensure continuous improvement vs the "big bang" project approach. A year ago he project realized over 90% ROI. At this point is the ROI declining rapidly. Currents efforts right are being presented as "Project work". The project presence is creating an unhealthy environment. This "over staying" and creating unnecessary confusion and resentment to the operations teams and contractors are resentful that the project team keeps dangling the prize of "becoming permanent", all this does not work in the best interest of anyone.

    Lastly, everyday along Owens Road you'll see several smokers puffing away right under the Kaiser Permanente sign, not sure if this is the image that Kaiser wants.
