    Pros

    The staff welcomed me with opened arms and they was helpful in teaching me what to do, i really in enjoyed the staff and the patients very friendly.

    Cons

    The supervisor was not very professional at all. Her communications skills was not up to part.

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional and not so aggressive when it comes to training a individual to do a job. Be willing to help out and not look down on the person your training.

    Pros

    Great culture, intelligent managers and directors with diverse backgrounds, great work environment, and excellent place to start career out of undergrad.

    Cons

    It's really difficult to highlight cons, as I feel it would be pretty nit pickey of me to do so for DaVita. Perhaps higher pay would be nice? But doesn't everyone want more pay from their employer?

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The annual DaVita survey isn't very valuable, which I'm guessing is why it's being eliminated. Just come talk to us teammates and we'll be tell you what we think.

    Pros

    works around family obligations and understands importance of quality family time. If you are at work late then its fine to come in late the next day. I always get the requests that I ask for and the the vacation that I want, when I want it.

    Cons

    Cant make plans on days that you work because you never know when you'll be done. Sometimes the days are insanely long. Your day is always changing and nothing is ever set in stone.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistant with rules /policies. Let people know what is expected of them so that they know what to do.

    Pros

    Great company with lots of room for upper growth. I started as a Pct and within a year and a half was running a unit.

    Cons

    A lot of people talk about pay as being a con. It's important to get paid for the work that is done and when you have a environment the is not fulfilling no matter how much I get paid it wouldn't be enough. I agree that pay should be increased for the line staff on the treatment floor as it doesn't compare to our market, however just because the pay increases doesn't mean job satisfaction also increases. It's up to us as clinical leaders to make each clinic a special place to work. DAVITA allows that to happen when I have worked for Davita.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look at pay practices for line staff and do market analysis to ensure our pay is what the market suggest it should be for our area of business.
