What is health insurance like at GoPro?

Pros

Overall company culture is great, most people are passionate about what they do and they take really good care of their full-time employees.

Cons

GoPro has a reputation as a really cool company to work for with great benefits. While that’s true for full-time employees, they shamelessly take advantage of their reputation when hiring contractors. A very large percentage of the workforce are contractors and when interviewing for a contract position they’ll tell you that the longest they can keep anyone as a contractor is 18 months. What they don’t tell you is that if they want to keep you after 18 months instead of hiring you full-time they’ll basically lay you off for 3 months and then rehire you as a contractor for another 18 months. This is their loophole to work around CA laws so they can keep someone as a contractor forever. Unethical abuse of contractors? You decide. Also you have no paid time off, mandatory unpaid holidays and a health insurance that’s pretty much the same as paying it 100% out of pocket.

Advice to Management

Stop abusing the young people who are willing to do anything to work for you. If you really think they’re valuable enough to keep around longer than what the law allows for contractors, then be reasonable and bring them on full-time with the benefits they deserve. A lot of those people are already grinding a lot harder than any of your FTE team members.
