    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Bonus Structure, Good mileage reimbursement, great programs to market.

    Cons

    Sales division is horrible. Sales goals are unattainable after the first year of success. Health insurance with the highest deductible 6500/15000 cost $8,000 a year. No sales support from upper level management, not willing to realign misaligned territories.

    Advice to Management

    Management, DO WHAT YOU SAY YOU'RE GOING TO DO. CEO: if you take care of your employees you'll be able to pay your investors more than they would have gotten with you pinching pennies.

  6. "Extremely poor management, CEO in particular"

    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers, and enjoy helping patients

    Cons

    CEO will tell you one thing and do exactly opposite the following day. Very low staffing which is a stress on staff and patients. Patient census is extremely low continually due to the CEO focusing on cutting staff rather than marketing the hospital. This hospital would prosper with a CEO that is focused on marketing and improving the hospital image in the community. CEO has also promised new employees full time hours only to find out that she will budget your hours down to save costs. This is not disclosed on interviews. CEO also promises double shift premiums to CNA's and nurses and many have not been paid as promised. DO NOT QUIT a 40 HOUR A WEEK JOB for this place.

    Advice to Management

    Change CEO at Kindred hospital northern indiana and the hospital has a chance.

    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great staff at site level. The team is amazing . Great nursing, aids, chaplain, social workers and bereavement coordinator. Office staff is excellent as well. Everyone works as a team, and all care about the patients.

    Cons

    Kindred goes off a "model" as to when you can hire staff. The census needs to be a certain level before they hire staff. This is unrealistic. The company is reactive in hiring staff, instead of being proactive. Staff gets burnt out trying to keep up. They keep piling work on you and than say "the model" does not support hiring. I have worked here 3 years, been through 3 ED's. Corporate is about the money and not about staff. Pay is below average, and the benefits are horroable. For the largest health care company our health insurance should be a lot better. We lose staff becasue of the health insurance and the lack of raises. Lack of staff recognition. If you ask for a well deserved raise you do not get it unless you have an offer letter from another company. At that point they will counter, but most great employees leave because they felt devalued.

    Advice to Management

    You need to recognize your staff. Health insurance needs to be better. Pay needs to be more competitive. Also Kindred no need to write a response "oh please call us with your concerns or call compliance". As I and you know it goes no where. I gave 3 stars for work/life balance because I shut work off. Many work well over 40 hours a week. The work load is rediculous.
