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

Pros

Good 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.

Cons

Very 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 ManagementAdvice

Upper 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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain good staff, stop the revolving door. Too much is spent on getting new staff, only to loose them .
