Pros

Kindred healthcare (PeopleFirst is a subsidiary) buys home health and hospice companies outright, puts them in PeopleFirst, keeps the staff, policies, etc., due to the difficulty in getting into the market. Some pros of small business, some pros of large business. Good culture, the people are really friendly and supportive. They are serious about the flexible hours. You get the benefit package of a large company, with small company culture.

Cons

You also get the cons of both small and large companies. Like small business, there's not a lot of room for moving around the company. Like large business, there can be a lot of pressure from above and red tape.

Advice to Management

There's unresolved conflict in company culture between each independent office, PeopleFirst, and Kindred - are you small, medium, or large? Determine whether your divisions/satellite offices are independent or not.

    Pros

    Decent pay if you advocate for it. Great flexibility for your schedule. Open door policy to call corporate for any problems, but don't expect much will occur as a result of calling.

    Cons

    Money is the mission. This company is part of Kindred. Which seeks singularly to increase shareholder value, i.e., profit. New grads will be asked to screen or eval patients that may not be appropriate for therapy services, and ENCOURAGED to pick up the patient if they are doubtful. Seasoned therapists have horrible job security if they are making anything above the local average hourly rate. This company will happily lose great therapists, replace with no-experience, new grads to keep budgets down. So what then happens to patient care and qaulity functional outcomes with no team experience? If you work for this company, protect your license (it's yours not theirs), enjoy excellent flexibility for time off requests, and know that no matter how well you do here with your patients, you kinda feel used for your license in exchange for pay. Working for this company was unfortunately nothing more for them than a financial transaction. "We pay you (well), you do what we say". That's fine, but once your license feels compromised, QUIT!

    Advice to Management

    After three years you gave me a plastic key chain. One year, a pen. Once I got a small stuffed animal (seriously). After 4 or 5 years a pin for my ID tag. And a photocopy of a certificate of "excellence". Please note your therapists are professionals with advance degrees. If you value your therapists, consider getting back to matching the 401(k)? Therapists are aware the services they give translate into deep profits for your company. The method for recognition with gifts seems insincere.

    Pros

    Benefits are decent, cont Ed is ok

    Cons

    Over worked understafed insisting on grouping patients that are not groupable, forcing acp modalities. It is all about the $$$. Hardly people first.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the program folks. Can't treat people this way. Someone will contact medicare and report what you are doing.
