A challenging but enjoyable environment for serious IT professionals.
Sr. Middleware Consultant (Former Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – October 20, 2014
A typical day at Kaiser Permanente IT: Mandatory meetings aside, YOU decide how your work day will be depending on your agreement re deliverables and deadlines. If you have excellent time management skills, you will thrive.
Top-level management is top-notch with great vision. Mid-level management ranges from poor to excellent depending on the individual manager.
Co-workers: The overwhelming majority are great to work with.
For me, the hardest part of the job was being on-call 24/7 for the most severe production support issues. These were the most challenging, most stressful, and most visible situations in IT (rightfully so, because patient care could be adversely affected).
The most enjoyable part: control of my work day.
Challenging work. Great benefits.
Can be highly stressful at times. If you can handle this, the pros outweigh the cons.
