    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    We are encouraged to communicate and have a good relationship with the higher administration. The job involves plenty of patient interaction, which was not mentioned in the job description, but is one of my favorite parts of this job. You are part of a team here and it's rewarding to see patients improve.

    It feels like Kindred puts profit over some patient/therapist/employee needs.
