Listen to your employees and help them better help the callers who call in for help. You guys are disconnected.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to transfer within the company. If you are liked by those in power. If not, you will not have the opportunity.

    Cons

    There are a lot of politics and senior leaders who should have gone away long ago. Lots of buzz words used, but little to no action.

    Advice to Management

    I would, but it would be a waste of time because they don't want any advice. Leadership is uninterested in the expeirnces of the staff.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time

    Pros

    Positive work environment. I think people (myself included) feel good about providing useful health management tools. Team is mostly very good -- some surprising talent there. Good pay/benefits. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Limited holidays. Engineering shares space with business which makes no sense (engineers need to concentrate -- hard to do when people frequently talk around you). Slight disconnect between business and engineering with respect to expectations and development cycle (it's agile on a 2-week cycle, but business sometimes thinks their requests should be immediately implemented.

    Advice to Management

    Consider reducing 60% contractor ratio. I realize you must consider this a cost-saving tactic, but I think there are hidden costs to this approach which aren't easily quantifiable. You presumably supported the switch to agile, so please respect the necessity of sticking to the cycle -- 2 weeks really isn't that long to wait for a new feature. :-)
