Great place to work...depending on your manager

Governance, Reporting and Communications Manager (Former Employee)
Pleasanton, CA

ProsWonderful company culture and the leadership believes and embraces the work life balance; it is not just talk. Many avenues to pursue once you get inside. It is a family and there are many wonderful things to work on within the scope of Kaiser Permenente. I worked in IT and it is a large comfortable campus with perks like subsidized lunch and music performances, also quality materials to work with. They are not cheap. Very reasonable, flexible and empowering of the individual.

ConsI got a bad director. She just couldn't handle the managerial aspects of her newly promoted state and gave no guidance whatsoever as to regular duties or deliverables to be produced or tasks to be performed, and she never got back with requested or required input on projects or deliverables, which made it difficult to get things done. I was let go without any more information than "it just didn't work out" which is hard to swallow when you are a senior level contributor with 25 years experience. Other directors are far better.

Advice to Senior ManagementGovernance, Reporting and Communications should be run by someone who actually can spell and use Word at a professional level, understands Excel and producing metric diagrams via automated applications instead of hand cut and paste and the errors prone to human interventions in reporting, and understands that governance is not just reporting on problems and golf-clapping a vendor for doing their job. Governance is in part ensuring SLA compliance and finding out and fixing what is wrong should SLAs not be met. At present, nothing is done to rectify problems from the director, the same action items remain for weeks and months and senior level leadership is forced to micro manage what should be a relatively straight forward position. Or it would be if I was allowed to implement the changes I proposed.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente


    Pros: Benefits are awesome: Full Cover health care, dental (for you and dependents) + life insurance, 401K, flex spending. Employee discounts has full range from sport… Cons: The work can sometimes be repetitive. Advice to Senior Management: The bonus should depend on the individual department scores and awarded by each department instead of the whole facility. Department… More
