No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Nice working environment if you belong to the "IN" crowd...

Cons

Management lacks technical experience. Lots of money wasted on projects that go nowhere.. Tons of offshoring and listening to unknowledgable people to determine what types of technical products to invest in. Sleep on the job and say yes to everything and you should have no problems joining the ranks of management here.. Promotions are given by social popularity.

Advice to Management

Fire the bottlenecks. Demand better performance from front line managers. Some are falling asleep on the job literally..

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, wage. Hours, facilities, good training.

    Cons

    Union, queen B mentality... years of employment vs capability rule the day. Still wish I never left.

    Advice to Management

    Look at experience verses years of employment history. You are missing valuable insight.

    Kaiser is a big company. Many different positions available. Depending on positive, room for advancement.
