    I worked at Kindred Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay, flexible schedule, not micro-managed, plenty of independence. Great if you like minimal interaction with other employees and don't mind driving

    Cons

    Lots of driving, I put 250 miles a week on my car, minimal. No opportunity for advancement. You spend a lot of time by yourself, so if that isn't what you like, be aware

    Advice to Management

    Be appreciative of your employees

    I worked at Kindred Healthcare part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Gained healthcare experience that was useful when applying to graduate school. Job was not difficult and training was provided. Was able to work out a schedule where I worked once a week.

    Cons

    Job can be very tedious, staring at 30 patients' heart rhythms for 12 hours straight.
    Could be difficult to gain the respect of nursing staff, which could make working together difficult.
    Manager never worked when I did, so I could not talk to him when there were issues.
    Often, equipment was malfunctioning, which was stressful.
    Hard to collaborate with other techs to get tasks completed because our shifts never overlapped.

    Advice to Management

    Would have helped to have a better communication method for techs to talk to each other.

    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Used to be a great place; pays pretty well.

    Cons

    Now, management is only out for themselves, and lack experience, wisdom, and good judgement. Lots of layoffs in the past and upcoming. On-going professional development is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Despite the high turnover in executive management for the past couple of years, you've yet to find innovative knowledgeable leaders, or leaders who think past their own bank accounts and prestige.
