What Our People Say
Principle IT Consultant
IT Data & Analytics
“I am proud to say that I have been part of the Kaiser Permanente (KP) team since May of 2015. KP is very supportive of parents. As a full-time working parent of two children, I really value working remotely. The KP culture supports work-life integration, which is important to me, since my special needs child has appointments and therapies. When my children are sick, my leader is very supportive so I can care for them until they are well. This impacts my families well being in a big way. Even with the challenge of balancing a career and family, I have earned a promotion during my time at KP. I highly recommend KP as an employer of choice for parents in IT!”
