    Pros

    They wasted my time. I had my salary requirements on my application and they had me in for an hour interview plus a shadowing, only to offer me $19.50 per hour. This was for a biomedical technician. They knew I wanted $25 per hour. They shouldn't have wasted my time.

    Cons

    It seems like a really simple job. Anyone could do it. Insurance is really expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Don't waste people time.

    Pros

    The people who come in everyday and work hard with hearts and hands. KT holds his core values very strongly, it's a strong counter point against all his VP's and Directors.

    Cons

    Management calls success a cube that can't be any smaller because of fire code laws success. They have zero respect for IT and it shows in how they banish them from the HQ building into a building no one wants to be in, and shrink the cubes because having a space where you aren't on top of one another is a luxury. Provide an actual path to develop your non resource managers. Technical people should be promoted more often then once every 8 years. Every director tries to power build so that they can be a VP, they ignore all the core values because their promotion is all they can focus on.

    Advice to Management

    Gain management experience in software and IT, realize that all work is hard work and that you can't coast or have 0 issues. Progress is tough business and if you are looking for an easy ride you should move on. If your a VP who says, "I want to inflict pain to create change" you should decide to move on, you are a problem.

    Pros

    The pros while working at Davita are simply meeting awesome patients and family members.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. Skills poor managment. Very unprofesional atmosphere. No structure or team work. Always under staffed. Working very hard in a very understaffed, stressful dangerous envirionment.

    Advice to Management

    Working on a hiring better candidates such as R.N's instead of individuals with degrees in buissness. Very important that a supervisor can understand and have some kind of patient care experiance anf understanding the princibales of the nursing field and patient care.
