Featured Review

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time for more than a year

Pros

lots of opportunities to develop careers

Cons

workload can lead to poor work-life balance

Advice to Management

keep up the good work

Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer

I have been working at Castlight full-time

Pros

The company had a decent work from home policy prior to COVID, and as such transitioned pretty well when it came to having everyone work fully remotely. Management is respectable and understanding... for the most part (in my experience). It is much easier to work for someone you respect. Having been part of some hiring decisions, I know that they tend to focus a bit less on technical skill and more on personality, willingness to learn, and work ethic (at least what can be surmised in interviews. Most tend to learn specific frameworks/languages on demand in this industry anyways). The culture reflects this and I genuinely respect the vast majority of my coworkers.

Cons

Working fully remotely now means I don't get to spend as much time with coworkers. That can be good for some, but for me it makes it a bit harder to stay motivated. No longer being in office means... no more free snacks/Lacroix, as per the meme.
