Interesting, challenging work, but watch out for burn out

IT Manager (Current Employee)
Pleasanton, CA

I have been working at Kaiser Permanente

ProsWork is interesting and challenging and there are opportunities for advancement. The group I work is bringing "cutting edge" technologies and methodologies to Kaiser...ironically outside of Kaiser they are mainstream.

ConsWork life balance doesn't exist. Management will suck you dry if you let them. Hard to get management to recognize that you need additional resources and prioritize your work. Other downside is that you need to get consensus from a lot of different groups before you can make any changes.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't try to solve every single problem at once, instead, select a handful of strategic initiatives and focus on them. Also stop with the constant re-orgs - I've had 4 managers in the course of a year.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
