Pros

For health care IT, this is one of the cutting edge places to work
Contract PMs and analysts are technically stronger and better experienced than employees or management

Cons

Very political.

If a vendor has ties to senior management they are impossible to control and KP will dismiss you, lay you off or discipline you for trying to do your job and control the vendor.

Too big of a presence by IBM and Epic in KP

Lousy contract rates from KP IT because of their fixed chargeback rates to Business

Poor leadership in KP IT

Contract PMs and analysts are not empowered and not able to make a difference

Too many reorgs.

Management and leadership disrespect of training and rollout planning.

Advice to Management

Change your IT leadership every 2-3 years from the manager level on up.
Control your vendors big and small
Get leadership and staff who are better rounded in experience, not just health care IT experienced.
Finance depots should do ROIs and ROI and burn rate tracking, not KP IT or contracted PMs. That way you get and ROI that is correctly built with reasonable assumptions and backed by CFO figures forecasts and plans

    Pros

    Co-workers are the best in their field of expertise.
    Great communications within the department.

    Cons

    Many, many tele-meetings, leaving little time to actually be able to tackle projects and produce and surpass the targeted goals.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the managers that are interacting at grass roots level.
