    Pros

    Gain a variety of experience working the floor as an RN in an LTAC unit, great for new grads, as your skills will definitely be sharpened.

    Cons

    Terrible management, they don't care about you when you struggle, pay is terrible and lower than average. Pay should be higher than average, considering all that you do and have to put up with. Bad attitudes everywhere, and the STNAs get away with not doing their jobs, very ghetto/unprofessionalism. Would not recommend anyone to work there!

    Advice to Management

    Help out your staff when they ask you for help. Management sees you drowning and lets you sink even deeper!

    Pros

    As a contractor the pay was okay..

    Cons

    My superior treated me like a glorified secretary and was hard to work with. I was not involved with the BA work, but instead was given information second hand. The department I worked in was run by unprofessional management.

    Pros

    This is a great place to gain experience. They provide you with all the tools and equipment necessary to do your job properly.

    Cons

    Working the night shift I don't get to take part in all the fun activities they have during the day. It's not all bad but I think night shift is a bit disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Being that most Kindred facilities are functional 24 hours it'd be nice to have night events for staff that misses out on all the fun stuff that goes on during the day.

    Pros

    Flexibility in schedule, independent throughout day.

    Cons

    Paid per visit vs hourly or salaried which is difficult to predict yearly pay and can cause some RN's to see too many patients per day resulting in poor quality outcomes.

    Advice to Management

    Change pay structure for RN's out in the field who are your front line staff and the face of Kubdred at Home.

    Pros

    This company has the most amazing culture at the corporate building, and is an amazing place to work.

    Cons

    The IT department stuck in a building down the street gets treated like basement dwelling animals by the company. We don't feel like we're part of the culture or family that this company truly has.

    Advice to Management

    This is geared toward the IT management at the location down the street from corporate. Buck up and stand up to the business for your department. Show your team you actually care about them and are willing to stand up for them.

    Pros

    Not many pros. It's a job! Not a lot going on here but the pay check.

    Cons

    Nursing staff is overwhelmed. To much to do. Everyone stressed including upper management. The DON talks down to staff as if they are 5yr olds.

    Advice to Management

    A reasonable patient load
