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

Pros

Career growth in areas perhaps not worked in the past. Working within the healthcare industry is a very up-and-coming industry with the proliferation of Electronic Health Records now in the federal healthcare, as well as the commercial healthcare industry. Job opportunities are becoming more and more prevalent, although somewhat specialized on healthcare application and claims processing knowledge.

Cons

On-boarding is quite the challenge for any newcomer, especially one with limited healthcare operational application background, but say with a solid IT experience and and sets of skills. The environment, however, is moving in the direction of employing standards across the enterprise, but is not there yet. There are a number of "one-off" ways of performing project implementations depending on location and direct management preferences, which makes for lots of duplication of efforts as a PM.

Advice to Management

Continue working on standardization of project implementation processes. Add a consistent and comprehensive CBT education program for newcomers with limited Kaiser technical enterprise experience during the ramp up period, which can be referenced throughout ramp up.

    Great employment opportunities to grow and move up internally. Also, great learning experience that can be used at future employers.

    Cons

    Very politically environment. People are promoted to positions they are suited for only because they are internal candidates. There are to many "retired" people still workig with the organization.
