    Pros

    They will pay for PMs or other IT positions.

    Cons

    Very back stabbing environment. The Management does not do a good job managing and will not support you very much if your a contractor. It is a sink or swim environment, you have to figure the culture out quickly and hope you do not tick anyone off. Take this company as your last option.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to management and support your resources.

    Pros

    It's a job when you need one, cause they always hiring due to turnover.

    Cons

    The pay, management, place and work is not worth it. They say they pay by experience but they don't. It's a lot of bitter mean people that work there. Nobody cares or helps and they keep people who abuse residents just to keep staff. I only been there a month and I'm already looking for another job. There turnover is one of the worst. RUN RUN away. Everybody talks about everybody.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better workers, show appreciation to workers, and up the salary for all the work that's being done. And stop acting nasty to the workers, I feel like calling state and labor board if you don't fix problem.

    Pros

    Good people. Sure, there are those that talk bad about others, but I have yet to feel threatened or see such behaviors amongst the ranks. There are many people in IT that have been there for 10, 20 and even 30 years. It is certainly a stable place, "from that perspective". Also, there are some really talented folks there. I have been thoroughly impressed.

    Cons

    They do not seem to value their engineers. It seems as though they love, love to spend money on professional services and do little to no work in-house. The way they handle technology integrations (acquisitions) is extremely painful on the end-user and I just don't understand what 400+ IT people do day to day when they seem to outsource everything. They have no idea how to operate efficiently and therefore, I believe their current operational model is not sustainable. Perhaps I am wrong, but I fail to see how they could continue to operate this way, leaving money like a sieve.

    Advice to Management

    Do not spin IT off as an independent, Healthcare focused, Managed Services Firm. Kindred will regret it. For any company to succeed, all cost centers need to somehow be key differentiators in your market place. Outsourcing to a managed services firm removes the intimacy of that relationship and at times, causes conflicts of interest.

    Pros

    Absolutely none. this place is a disgrace to healthcare and should be shut down . I wouldnt let my dog go here.

    Cons

    Dangerous staffing ratios. .... I left because i felt my license was endangered by this type of care. The company puts profits way before patients and is substandard. Low pay, horrible working conditions, and expensive worthless insurance. No retirement to speak of and incompetent management

    Advice to Management

    Face reality and quit being head nodding, obedient minions .

    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.
