    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Over the last 2 years Kaiser has been reducing their benefits. Once a great place to spend a career should now be thought of a quick stop if you are interested in any of their opportunities. Management hires management which are friends and friends of friends without IT experience and attempts to drive down their grocery store tactics to the knowledge holders.

    Cons

    Poor leadership in most areas of IT. CIO doesn't have the background otherwise he would have removed his Executive Staff.

    Advice to Management

    Clean out Executive Management and replace with people who care about the business and their hiring practices.

    My current managers are amazing because of their management style. They trust their employees, heavily promote work life balance, and have a very unique mind set. They are very easy going and friendly. I do not have to feel intimidated or worried. This makes me want to stay here for as long as I can. In this environment, I want to give my boss and team 110%.

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

    Pros

    Co workers - great people who work here thinking they can contribute
    PTO (if you have the workload to take it)
    Flexibility (depending on department, and since you are working 12+ hours you need to make up somewhere)

    Cons

    TPMG treated better. Program office 2nd class citizens
    Gross inequality in pay. You can feel the "boys club" and the bureaucracy
    For the people that think you will be reward after you prove yourself, don't be surprised your standard % increase is still 1%-4% range.
    HR is behind the times and the fact that they don't even have exit interviews shows how little they really care about retention.

    Advice to Management

    HR restructure
    Compensation restructure
    Work load is unsustainable. Many people leave within 2 years
    Since everything is on dashboard you should look at gender pay equality outside of TPMG
