    Pros

    Ability to work with current IT technologies and smart people within the relative security of the Health Care/Insurance industries.

    Cons

    Large, bureacratic, and slow-moving; federated nature of organization often makes it feel like you're working with different companies altogether.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be less risk-averse and conversative; encourage employees to take reasonable risks and reward them for it.

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente as a contractor (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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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