Pros

Great benefits; diversity; flexible schedules; a lot of areas to grow your career. I recommend moving to a new department every 2-3 years for growth purposes.

Cons

People who work with their "hair on fire" get promoted while those who quietly get the work done often slip through the cracks.

Advice to Management

Consider ways to boost morale and encourage your team to participate in Thrive events, maybe even start your own events/challenge.

    Pros

    A challenging job with plenty to learn, if you take the initiative and balance responsibilities.

    Cons

    Oncall, middle of the night work, demanding on your sleep schedule. Even though there is plenty to learn, Kaiser does not pay for much education coursework. So you can learn on the job if you take the initiative.

    Advice to Management

    More face time between employees. Understandably most of the work is remote since it is IT support 24/7. However, it would help relations and collaboration and cross training if more face time was supported with peers and managers.

    Pros

    IT feeds on Kaiser Permanente's progressive image of leadership in Health Care and sees themselves as enablers.

    Cons

    IT fails to realize a strategy that delivers, they remain decades behind in internal processes, red tape's abound.
    Describes their IT staff as “commodity” workers doing “commodity” work.
    Their staff is demoralized, any strategy is accidental; the ship's captain has no clue.
    Largest implementation of ERP run by people with zero knowledge of what they manage.

    Advice to Management

    Your fat layers of management and lack of knowledge is driving cost of healthcare up.
