    Pros

    Great company to work for they treat their employee's like family. Opportunity for growth!

    Cons

    Working with the dialysis population is challenging work. You must work to maintain a work-life balance at this company. A lot of pressure to meet metrics but this is common nowadays in healthcare. No 401K match, but they do offer a profit sharing bonus plan that all teammates benefit from.

    I worked at DaVita full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very structured company, there is no question about your job role. Since the company is international there is great support even for the smallest clinic!

    Cons

    Early work hours, be there by 5am, but out by 4 on a good day. If your clinic doesn't have an evening, 3rd, shift you may be there until 8pm or later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

    Pros

    autonomy, can make a difference for patients and their families, rewarding and fulfilling in terms of the purpose of your work.

    Cons

    lots of initiatives, some never come to fruition which then becomes a six month waste of time. Stay true to keeping the main thing the main thing. All the extra strategy and think tank stuff becomes a heavy lift on tm's who actually deliver the care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reconsider your recruiting strategies around leadership, develop talent within and remember that strategy without execution is a huge time suck. Keep it simple.......

    I have been working at DaVita full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I learned a lot of medical skills during my internship, its easy, but hard too, like during treatment sessions for patients you have to stay moving , stocking supplies, checking vitals of all your patients , total & complete dedication your skill set

    Cons

    The downside is the long hours you start your day at 4:00 am and it ends at 6:00 pm this job isn't for the cry baby's
    You become a medical technician not just in words or title.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Davita is a great place to work, it has diversity within its organization. Thankful for the opportunity to be trained within there facilities.

    Pros

    They offer quite an array of teaching materials for education.

    Cons

    with such a large company, the staffing issues are the most complex and does not leave much room for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incentives for float pool to grow and assist current staff would make a world of difference for morale.

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement, Competitive salary with generous bonus program. Upper management is genuinely interested in and promotes a culture of caring in teammates.

    Cons

    Like all healthcare companies DaVita is forced to balance dwindling health care dollars with exceptional patient care and employee compensation.. Time management skills at the clinic level are a must,

    Pros

    Davita had heart, it cares for you as a person, not just an employee. There are plenty of growth opportunities and upward mobility. They encourage you to get in the driver's seat and steer your career wherever you want it to go. I have worked for the company over 10 years, it's been challenging in rewarding way and fulfilling both personally and professionally! Extremely progressive, patient centered, quality care!

    Cons

    Like anywhere, nothing is perfect and people will be people. At times we tolerate poor performance way too long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many meetings and conference calls can at times limit a managers ability to actually lead.
