    Pros

    Leader in Healthcare technology, especially Electronic Medical Records. There is nobody bigger or doing more with leading edge technology than Kaiser. Benefits (health care costs are excellent).

    Cons

    There is a strong prevailing CYA mentality. When I first started I always wondered why EVERYONE uses email for ALL communications - it didn't take long to understand why... verbal discussions are "forgotten" and accountability at the Sr. management level is all but non-existent; there is always a line manager or staff member who takes the hit for any problem.

    The annual review process is a joke - only negative information is used unless you make the effort to document the positive feedback - forcing management to include it in the reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Step up and be accountable - honesty and integrity should be something more than just sound-bites....


  2. Good starter company.

    Pros

    Generally compassionate to employees. Inclusive in approach. Employee engagement is good. Recognizes good employees but does not do enough to retain them.

    Cons

    Slow decision making. Consensus based approach is their achilles heel. Work load is not equitable. Lots of people get away with slacking on the job.

    Advice to Management

    Tighten up management. Do more with less and reward strong performers handsomely. May be a nonprofit but competes with other forprofit companies for the same talent pool. Develop a strong bonus program
