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

    Pros

    Benefits are amazing, free healthcare and dental. Kaiser probably has the highest pay for CLS in California and in the US. Pension also, you cant go wrong there. Plus they give bonus when you do not call in sick for a certain number of days.

    Cons

    Unionized so seniority is always priority so better start when you are younger so you can gain seniority. Very strict with attendance and punctuality, although thats not really a con to some people.

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Stable company, great benefits, very family-oriented. A great company to retire from.

    Cons

    Because of HIPAA regulations, being a software engineer/developer at Kaiser has downsides - everything needs to be vetted by IT, and you can't really be on the cutting edge. Open source frameworks were frowned upon.

    Advice to Management

    Have more team-building opportunities

    Pros

    There is the potential to do good work that will have a positive impact on a large number of people.

    Cons

    Internal politics is crazy. My executives give us instructions on how to move forward with our internal clients then when the clients push back, our execs roll over. Completely thrown under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    Stop re-orgs. You're jerking people around and playing with their lives.
