    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.

    Interview Details

    Took 4 weeks. Still waiting for offer. Recruiter called and scheduled for panel interview. They said to wait after 48 hours for the next step. Just be patient because it is a lengthy process.
