I worked at Kaiser Permanente as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Career growth in areas perhaps not worked in the past. Working within the healthcare industry is a very up-and-coming industry with the proliferation of Electronic Health Records now in the federal healthcare, as well as the commercial healthcare industry. Job opportunities are becoming more and more prevalent, although somewhat specialized on healthcare application and claims processing knowledge.

Cons

On-boarding is quite the challenge for any newcomer, especially one with limited healthcare operational application background, but say with a solid IT experience and and sets of skills. The environment, however, is moving in the direction of employing standards across the enterprise, but is not there yet. There are a number of "one-off" ways of performing project implementations depending on location and direct management preferences, which makes for lots of duplication of efforts as a PM.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue working on standardization of project implementation processes. Add a consistent and comprehensive CBT education program for newcomers with limited Kaiser technical enterprise experience during the ramp up period, which can be referenced throughout ramp up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to have conversations with your employees about where they want to their next job to be within your company. If you don't have this conversation with your employee, someone in another department will - and recruit them.
