    Pros

    This is a great place to gain experience. They provide you with all the tools and equipment necessary to do your job properly.

    Cons

    Working the night shift I don't get to take part in all the fun activities they have during the day. It's not all bad but I think night shift is a bit disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Being that most Kindred facilities are functional 24 hours it'd be nice to have night events for staff that misses out on all the fun stuff that goes on during the day.

    Pros

    This company has the most amazing culture at the corporate building, and is an amazing place to work.

    Cons

    The IT department stuck in a building down the street gets treated like basement dwelling animals by the company. We don't feel like we're part of the culture or family that this company truly has.

    Advice to Management

    This is geared toward the IT management at the location down the street from corporate. Buck up and stand up to the business for your department. Show your team you actually care about them and are willing to stand up for them.

    Pros

    Flexibility in schedule, independent throughout day.

    Cons

    Paid per visit vs hourly or salaried which is difficult to predict yearly pay and can cause some RN's to see too many patients per day resulting in poor quality outcomes.

    Advice to Management

    Change pay structure for RN's out in the field who are your front line staff and the face of Kubdred at Home.
