    I have been working at Kaiser Permanente full-time

    Pros

    Positive work environment. I think people (myself included) feel good about providing useful health management tools. Team is mostly very good -- some surprising talent there. Good pay/benefits. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Limited holidays. Engineering shares space with business which makes no sense (engineers need to concentrate -- hard to do when people frequently talk around you). Slight disconnect between business and engineering with respect to expectations and development cycle (it's agile on a 2-week cycle, but business sometimes thinks their requests should be immediately implemented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider reducing 60% contractor ratio. I realize you must consider this a cost-saving tactic, but I think there are hidden costs to this approach which aren't easily quantifiable. You presumably supported the switch to agile, so please respect the necessity of sticking to the cycle -- 2 weeks really isn't that long to wait for a new feature. :-)

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

    Pros

    There are a lot of growing opportunities. They have a rich benefit package which includes vacation, life balance, and sick time off.

    Cons

    It is a union job and when wanting to promote to a union position, at times they will consider the person with seniority versus the one that is more knowledgeable.
