I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Depending on your manager and role you can work from home. In KPIT, you may have the option to be an anchor, part time or full time telecommuter. Generous PTO and floating holidays.

Cons

IT jobs are paid less than market rate. Technology used is a generation or two behind although recently has been catching up.

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some areas have work life balance, other areas expect long hours. Kaiser has been laying off employees but the work grows. Hence long hours for many remaining employees.

    Cons

    Political, favoritism, management is more concerned with managing up than managing and growing their employees. Hard to move up unless you excel in politics.
    This is not the place to work if you believe that being smart, adding value and doing the right thing will help you move up in the organization. Marginal employees are constantly promoted because they are political, not because they improve the company or are good leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at your leaders and clean house. Some VPs should have been let go years ago. Lack of ethics and integrity

    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    good benefits and bonus for management

    Cons

    Salary. Less staff and more absorption of work trying to fit 70 -80 hours in a 50-60 hour work week is stifling
    First started working ave 40-45 a week and now ave in excess of 60 per week because of no backfills

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honor comp days more often for those work in excess of 50 hours a week or make us hourly or shortened work weeks before you burn us salary folks out
