    Pros

    Management was supportive, feeling I'd closeness with other employees.

    Cons

    Hard work , sometimes understaffed, geographically challenging workload due to layout of the building

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to each employee. Don't schedule town hall meetings and repeatedly cancel them. Follow through on promises.

    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    PRN works well with your schedule. Flexible with hours if you work another job. Staff are for the most part helpful when needed.

    Cons

    Not enough chances for advancement. The salaries are set for prn. You will never get an increase. Regular shift work is not available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a good job with what you are given.

    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    With the recent change in CIO the company is beginning to recognize the importance of IT/IS. If the company continues in the current direction it could be a leader in the industry.

    Cons

    At heart, this is an old school healthcare company and IT/IS employees are often treated like a necessary evil.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promoting and recognizing your own employees would be cheaper than watching them all leave and having to train new employees.
