    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People I work with are nice. Pay is decent but doesn't make up for all the benefits that have been cut in recent months. Company is good about encouraging and paying for training.

    Cons

    It appears that everyone EXCEPT executive management are having their pay and benefits cut to make budget. Morale is at a low point.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the floors and get in touch with reality. Experience what your staff is seeing, hearing, and feeling.

    I worked at Kindred Healthcare full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salary is not bad. 12 hour shifts for nursing and respiratory. That is it!

    Cons

    No one will discuss the health benefits upon hire. Costs and deductible are very high. Salaries are frozen. No contribution to retirement.
    Critical patients. Poor doctors - physicians do not stay because conditions are so poor.
    You are labeled ifyou do not want or are not able to work loads of overtime. Never enough staff
    When working 3 12 hour shifts, working more is difficult. Constant calls at home to work more.
    No consideration for having a family, children, or needing sleep.
    Good nurse manager was let go. She actually cared. Nurse managers do not stay because they are abused.In 10 years there have been 8 or 9 nurse managers. Either walk out or are fired......what does that tell you.
    Upper managment does not care
    Admissions keep coming whether staff can handle them safely or not.
    Incentive are at Tshirt.......really? A T Shirt from the CEO when something is good.
    Nursing is so stressed and stretched to the max it is impossible to feel like patients receive good care.
    Very frustating for good nurses - so they do not stay.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new management team starting from the CEO
