I worked at Kindred Healthcare full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Unlike most travelling jobs at a tech where I'd be away from home for weeks or months at a time. Kindred flew me between home and work every week. Pay was good with all expenses paid and per diem.

Cons

Depending on the project you would get alot of pressure from upper management to complete it in less time then is practical resulting in rediculously long hours which isn't particularly safe when climbing through ceilings and on ladders.

Advice to Management

Listen to your techs and PM's. Many of them are very hard working and if they say it's not practical or safe, it isn't. If a job is bid for 1 week but should take 2, that shouldn't be the techs problem to fix; the person who did the bid needs to spend some time on projects to get a better idea of what kind of obstacles to watch out for that can grind a cabling team to a crawl and will need extra time to complete correctly and safely.

    I worked at Kindred Healthcare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A positive working environment, with great staff support. The nursing staff is sufficient as to not overload the nurse with an unmanageable patient load.

    Cons

    The pay was not as high as other hospitals in the area

    Advice to Management

    Continue to connect and support your employees.


  2. "So many budget cuts going on!"
