    Great work environment, lots of corporate support

    Cons

    Not a lot of career advancement unless you leave and then come back with experience. No "training up"

    Pros

    Decent facility, flexable hours but not sure that is a pro really flexable sometimes means not many hours. Time off if you can accrue it

    Cons

    No raises, horrible insurance, poor regional management. While clinical staff in the field struggle with the horrible billing system there is very little training to help with the transition.

    Advice to Management

    Upper managment really needs to pay more attention to what the regional levels are doing. Comprimising staff training, cutting cost that not only infuriate employees but actually hinder us from being more productive. I actually do not think that it is the mission of Kindred I DO think it is greed from lower level managers.

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers no other pros

    Cons

    The hospital I work at is very busy. Loved the job at first but the better employee you are the more work they give you. Was told I need to be available 24/7 but then they tell you "no overtime". The benefits are some of the worst I have seen. $4000 deductible for me and my daughter before insurance pays anything and it costs me $300 a month for just 2 people. No matching 401k, no raises in several years for anyone. Seems like it's nothing but th bottom line for them.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees decent wages and benefits. No opportunity to learn. Just work work work
