    Pros

    Great company mission, good benefits and lots of diversity.

    Cons

    Hard to get into the company and difficult to move around in the company unless you know someone. People are moved into manager positions because of who they know or based on positive project outcomes, yet they have no experience managing people. In other words, promoted based on technical expertise, not on a manager skill set. This becomes problematic for the people that work under them. Also, lots of management level people brought in from consulting firms that want to run departments like projects. It doesn't work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for managers with experience, pay closer attention to People Pulse results and act on them within a reasonable time. The problems identified in those results do not go away, so take care of them immediately.

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay can be great, lots of experienced people to learn from, lots of freedom and spare time

    Cons

    The management exists in an alternate universe that is based on PowerPoint presentations. You can forget about clear goals, or adequate tools to get the job done. KPIT never saw a toy they did not want to buy, especially if it somehow benefits IBM, but the interest is lost as soon as it is procured. Expensive software is procured, but never made available to those who need it. I knew people who for months came to work and slept and surfed the web. If you raise the issue, you'll be run out. In periodic cost adjustments qualified people are replaced with complacent drones.

    Fire yourselves, repent, give up your ill-gotten BMWs, spend the rest of your life in a monastery atoning
