No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

convenient locations, not much expected of you.

Cons

A lot of "lifers" rely on contractors and consultants to get the real work done.

Advice to Management

Managers need to be less upward-serving and understand the inefficiencies and abuses in their own departments.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Amazing people who care about the members they service.

    Cons

    Culture changing from one of customer service to one of quantitative numbers. Instead of treating customers as customers treating as numbers and losing sight of the purpose and mission of the IT dept in a large enterprise. Will b e surprised if the Desktop Technicians are still in house in the near future.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink the direction you are asking to go, the investment in time and people will be less costly if corrected prior to outsourcing. Other companies that have tried the out source route are bring most IT services back in house.
