    Pros

    Big company, Pay next to nothing for Health Care, Challenging work, Friendly people to work with, opportunity for growth is great.

    Cons

    From an IT perspective, run for your life. Kaiser sold their IT operations to IBM is 2009 and have gone downhill since. Everything is sent off shore to India and pretty soon 90% of Kaiser's IT will be off shore. As far as other areas of Kaiser, great to work for!

    Advice to Management

    From an IT standpoint, get out of bed with IBM, they have killed the IT portion of Kaiser
