    I have been working at DaVita full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Healthcare midlevel management is a difficult profession. Having spent years doing hospital unit management DaVita has been a breath of fresh air. The company truly lives its Mission, Vision, and Values. Integrity is visible everyday as evidenced by transparency surrounding daily operational and clinical metrics. As an Administrator you clearly know what you are working to achieve. Promotions are available and management continuing education offered and encouraged. Bonuses are attached to hitting and exceeding established annual goals. It is a fun place to work and as an administrator creating a fun team environment is an expectation.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be difficult as you are truly the "CEO" of your clinic. If you develop a strong team you can relax a bit more on your days off, but the job really never goes away. Regional Operation Directors have too many clinics to oversee which leads to difficulty in getting support and feedback at the facility level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although we all know that the healthcare environment is constantly changing and financial constraints affect all that we do, having new programs and program changes constantly hitting the clinic makes the stress level for the FA at times intolerable. Research shows that strong team environments and teams that feel they have a voice is what moves company into the Best Places To Work. If the team feels like they have just one "new" metric, "new" program after another, there is no time left for the FA to focus on team development and fun.

    Pros

    A lot of opportunities, great mission and values

    Cons

    They sure keep you busy, and if you love what you do, it is ok...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know, they heard it so many times, yet 401 K match would be nice, besides profit sharing

    I have been working at DaVita

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Excellent training. Resource help great. Generous vacation accrual. Team work actually exists! Uniforms provided.

    Cons

    Have to find my own coverage when sick.
    If I'm too sick to work I'm too sick to call all over for coverage.
    Pay is too low for responsibility expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My personal boss.....don't twist information you received into negative opinions/judgements/labels.

    Pros

    Unique culture, opportunities for professional development, opportunity to be part of a great mission, wonderful training programs.

    Cons

    Some non-traditional benefits are difficult for some to understand, differential pay structure (best performers are well-compensated, not really a con...).

    I have been working at DaVita

    Pros

    The culture at DaVita is wonderful. The leaders and teammates really live the mission and values of the company. It is a patient first mentality.

    Cons

    The benefits are not the greatest. No 401k match and health plans are not the best. Comparable to a lot of companies in the area, but the only con I see.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be more competitive with the salary.

    Pros

    DaVita has a great culture that is conducive to a safe and comfortable workplace. They have core values that they actually seem to care about and follow, and the organization also encourages its teammates to excel.

    Cons

    The pay could be better, but the benefits and compensation package works to make up for that shortcoming.
