    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente

    Pros

    Kaiser has a great mission, Because of that, they have attracted the best and brightest in IT. The team that I worked was the best I had ever experienced in my career.

    Cons

    Kaiser has one of most cumbersome, intractable bureaucracies I have ever encountered. Collaboration is hampered by fiefdoms. Constant scope shift means that projects start, stop, and restart again, losing valuable resource time in the process, throwing teams into crisis mode. The organization defers a great deal of control to the regions, creating substantial complexity to solutions that otherwise could be simple. There is very little recognition for good work, especially if it's done by the contracting workforce. The result? The best and the brightest, attracted by Kaiser's good reputation, soon leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop changing direction. Make a plan, sufficiently scope it, and stick to it. Value your employees for what they contribute and place them in roles where their best talents and skills can be put to work. Help them get through the bureaucracy to get the tools they need to do their jobs. When they deliver, give them recognition, and give it to them often. They come to Kaiser because they *want* to work for you. They're already committed (contractors included!). You can only break their spirit by not recognizing their best efforts.
