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

    Pros

    Good pay. Great DON. Great in house pharmacy. Great therapies. Nice patients. Nice hr.

    Cons

    Bad lazy nurses who don't do their job. They let stat orders go undone. They don't care about pts. Only care about paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Watch over nurses and cnas. Give realistic goals please. Can't do everything. Job load already heavy without extra ventures for more money. Get pts who actually need the facility. Not just bodies.

    I worked at Kindred Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Staff is nice as in nurses and kitchen.

    Cons

    They have the worst training, worst HR and worst morale of any company in USA. Their liaisons are treated like slaves expected to work 24 hours a day 7 days a week and pay is horrible. They set unrealistic quotas on them and some work years never making a single bonus. dont give two weeks notice because they won't accept it ! Watch your pay because it's usually wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. This is not a third world country .

    I worked at Kindred Healthcare (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility, Experience GOOD AND BAD, Networking

    Cons

    Limited Promotion opportunities, Lacking Executive Training Programs in Most Territories, High Turnover of Middle Management,

    Advice to Management

    Promote from Within- In the 7 years I worked there I was the top sales representative in DFW and was not given an opportunity for advancement although I applied, each person who was hired as my direct report had little to zero healthcare experience.

    Pros

    Great co-workers and great docs to work with, but little else.

    Cons

    Poor management, low pay, they promise great things then lie about it. Overworked, not enough staff, just to make sure the higher ups get their bonus' every quarter. Moral poor. Patient care not good enough.

    Advice to Management

    Be on the same side as your employees. Support them, give them raises, pay them what they are worth. In return you will have happy employees instead of unhappy ones. Patients will tell the difference. Sweat shop.

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

    Pros

    It's a good place to learn how to cope with minimal staff. Lots of practice doing that. Also, it's a great place to lied to if your into that sort of thing.

    Cons

    Too many to count. I would start with the lack of support from executives and there knowledge of questionable medical billing practices in the DFW area.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to the staff about the lack of funds available to give staff wage increases, especially when the CEO is getting 1 million dollar bonuses every year. That information is public information and it is an insult to the intelligence of the employees. Also, start doing more to give rather than to receive when it comes to 401k. The CEO is nothing more than a greedy man who deserves to be neglected, like the Kindred patients, to get a dose of reality.
