    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Kindred Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are good. Reliable income. One manager walked into a terrible situation and did more than someone could ask for given the mess.

    Cons

    Work load triple what it should be. Was told corp did not care about quality and could ask them myself. Made a mistake with me and would not make it right. Management wrote up too quickly. Had a VP that was so bad no one would talk to her. Did not recognize things like no falls in 14 months, code blue 2 a week to 1 in three months. Par for dressing supplies was 34 when actual needed was 54 nothing done about it.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Kindred Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    - Gain good experience given that it is a big company - Location of the support center

    Cons

    - VERY CHEAP company- does the least possible for the employees - Classist culture - Low pay -Non-existing raises- people have not gotten raises for over 5 years- ONLY the top leadership gets bonuses and raises, while telling everyone lower than them in position that they have no budget - So much office politics- Higher leadership is only interested in you if you have connections, are rich, or look a certain way - Many employees have been quitting back to back - and now that leadership is feeling this, they are trying to put together a "culture initiative" that nobody cares about but everybody is forced to attend - People are continually being gaslighted and taken advantage of - If you want to climb the ladder no matter what it takes, then you might like working here. Otherwise you will just lose your sanity. -Many people have been used as a scapegoat for others' mistakes, and credit is not given when it is due
