Pros

Great opportunity to work for a professional healthcare organization that is supportive of staff. You know you make a difference in the lives of residents and family members every day.

Cons

A challenge to work with difficult personalities as people are debilitated and sometimes have unrealistic expectations.

    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some great lasting friendships established. Multiple business relationships developed that will last a lifetime. Free parking, stable, non hostile workplace when team leaders are qualified.

    Cons

    Liaison management with zero clinical experience giving direction to clinical liaisons, a lot of finger pointing where management is concerned so that people working under him won't outshine "the boss." Redundant reports, salesforce.com daily documentation, quarterly plans, weekly plans, daily plans, conference calls daily to get the daily plan in addition to what has already been mentioned. Drug reps are being hired to replace clinical liaisons with zero clinical experience to do critical care admission assessments in referring hospitals. (Your family member is being evaluated clinically in Chicago by a non-clinical person for admission to Kindred, THAT'S DANGEROUS AND KINDRED DOES NOT CARE!) Decreased PTO, Kindred does not put in to the 401K, micro management at it's best, unrealistic goals. A bonus program that sounds good but numbers are manipulated to show a lack of revenue so you never make bonus. However, the company reports how well they are doing. A major back stabbing environment in the regional offices at Chicago North. HR does not address harassment concerns when multiple staff complains about the same person. It is a horrible market to work in due to all of these issues.

    Advice to Management

    Put patient safety above sales and marketing in Chicago. Something serious is going to happen to a patient transferring from a referring hospital to Kindred due to lack of clinical information and lack of clinical expertise on the liaison's part. Heads and beds are more important than patient safety in Chicago. Hire a marketing director that has critical care experience so that the proper training can take place.

    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful, caring highly qualified coworkers. Good middle management.

    Cons

    Disaster in Executive Suite. I have worked at the HQ for almost 15years. They brought in a new COO who is reneging on all the promises made regarding pay, benefits and 401(k) matching contributions! Pay and benefits for long term are actually regressing. Professional employees at HQ are treated with little respect or regard. Kindred seems to keep making acquisitions thereby increasing workload for HQ employees while not increasing staff, in fact reducing staff. Morale among employees at HQ is universally low. Expect more departures as economy picks up. Executives continue to get fat bonuses while professionals who make the company running are taken advantage of!

    Advice to Management

    Look beyond your immediate self-interest to the long term success of the Company. That depends on high morale among the staff delivering services and running the infrastructure day to day.
