  1. Some great managers, but morale is low and opportunities for advancement are rare.

    Pros

    There are some excellent managers and good team players working at Kindred.

    Cons

    Many of the good people are leaving, due to lack of compensation and opportunities for advancement.
    Forced to use old technologies because they are slow to change and adapt.
    Salaried employees work long hours.
    Senior management is very detached from their workforce and concerned solely with profit.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on acquiring other companies and shareholder value and more on your current employees and patients.

    Pros

    The division I worked for, Peoplefirst Hospice had absolutely wonderful and caring clinicians and psychosocial team members. They were done a major disservice by its (mis) management and marketing team.

    Cons

    A director who was out of control, unable to manage the agency. The policies of Kindred overextended to what was realistic. Very slow in becoming computerized - now mandatory for agencies, but still not fully implemented in an easily usable form. Riddled with favoritism. Benefits: could do with less junk like shopping discounts but very poor health insurance benefits (They don't take care of their own!)

    Advice to Management

    Management has changed for that particular division. But overall, look at realistic caseloads and territories. Fix the computer system. Merge your home care system with your other facility systems so that all health care providers can utilize it to obtain appropriate information. Rein in marketing so that it will recommend appropriate eligible clients for applicable programs. Look at conflicts of interest. Need much better health care/insurance benefits-more choices need to be available-insurance with extremely high deductibles should not be the only choices.
