Large Bureaucracy, never learn from past mistakes, but great team dynamics

Project Coordinator (Former Employee)
Oakland, CA

I worked at Kaiser Permanente as a contractor for more than 5 years

ProsGood employee benefits & retirement plan. They have a very strong team dynamic - it's definitely like a large family. If you're well liked by Kaiser, you'll be asked to come back to work for them.

ConsVery bureaucratic, they bring on a lot of contractors but never hire people - high turnover of contractors since they can only keep them for a finite amount of time. People feel that change will never happen.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper Management looks at the bottom line, repeat past mistakes over and over - sometimes being able to stay afloat isn't always about the bottom line - they need to look at retaining good employees and hire people so they will stay to keep the machine afloat

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
