    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare

    Pros

    work 3-12 hour shifts. 4 days off. Good tuition reimbursement with scholarship opportunities.

    Cons

    Minimal or no salary increases. Healthcare is a business. The bottom line dictates nurse patient ratios. Workers feel they are not valued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to value their current employees. It makes no since to constantly train new employees and do nothing to retain them.
