    I worked at Kindred Healthcare full-time for 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.

    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great PTO benefits that’s about all It’s a good starter job to get experience

    Cons

    The company only cares about nurses and belittles all other staff . They allow their favorites to do whatever they want and even when they don’t get the job done upper management is quick to blame other staff members that had nothing to do with it. They will put their CNA to have 18 patients by themselves with no help from nurses sometimes then get upset when CNA can’t get to everyone

    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Great team of therapists at my facility - Flexible scheduling - Somewhat flexible PTO - Company reimburses for some supplies and CE

    Cons

    - Management completely out of touch with the day-to-day operations and conflicts being a therapist in a SNF/LTC facility -Productivity trumps promoting quality care at the end of the day. Regular mandatory "inservices" on ethical practice, yet the company doesn't practice what they preach. Point-of-care documentation? Not feasible for quality, patient-centered treatment. -Post-PDPM, company pushes for group treatments - Red flag! - Sub-par health benefits package - Company let go of majority of PRN staff, instructs full-time staff to drive an upwards of 2 hours to other facilities that need help when that facility's census gets high. - Upper management implements new policies, middle management and the therapists finally get the memo 2 weeks to months later. - Do I even need to mention CEO's multi-million salary when the company has had a "wage freeze" in place for the treating therapists for at least 2 years? Many of my coworkers haven't had a single raise in 5 years. If you threaten to leave, if you are LUCKY you may get a marginal one. - No performance reviews. - Therapists putting in their two weeks notice, then middle management groveling on their knees and offering significant raises in response. And then they want to ask how your non-existent performance review went....

    Pros

    Various office locations in the metro Atlanta area.

    Cons

    No room for growth and raises are not an option. There is extreme favoritism and corporate does nothing about it. All upper management positions are not minorities.

    I worked at Kindred Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    They provide a much needed service to an increasing population of elderly and homebound patients. Office management tries to create a collaborative and positive environment.

    Cons

    Upper management seems unorganized and they make changes last minute with no planning that throws the office into chaos. Seems to be a constant feel of putting out fires.
