    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Perm employees know their stuff
    Work can be challenging

    Cons

    - Perm employees are tired to retraining contractors because they rehire for every project vs hiring people for sustainability or continuity. Contractor acquire a lot of knowledge so much after a 2 year project then they are let go to save money.
    - Oppressive working conditions in Pleasanton kaiser basically put 6 contractors into a small room.
    - I see projects show "on track" without any questioning.
    - Pay rate is very low about 20% lower than what other companies offer.
    - They give you a ton of work but say nobody put over 40hrs on their timecard. You need to ask for approval first but I often got a load of work dumped on me on a thursday, fri, or day before a long weekend that was due monday.

    Anytime I see a job opening from Kaiser IT, I know it's not worth the effort, conditions nor pay rate.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to rate and retain good contractors. Keep a portion of your permanent employee base fresh and not at the political mercy of the perm employees that have self serving goals. Ask hard questions in projects that have contractors on board and find a way to get information from them. They will be honest and know they may not stay anyways so they wil most likely be very conservative or accurate at the very least.
