    Pros

    Extremely dedicated teammates. Beautiful building!! The cafeteria is very nice with great options.

    Cons

    The atmosphere was very "cult like". Very strange when the CEO wants to be called "The Mayor". Certain Directors promote an unhealthy environment by encouraging teammates to act like informants and spies. You always feel like someone is watching and listening.... They pride themselves on their culture, "One all, All for one", however that is a fa sod. A lot of EGO'S!

    Advice to Management

    Learn to promote your team and not just yourself!

    Pros

    DaVita truly cares about its' teammates (employees), patients, and the community. The high level of personal development opportunities in unlike any other company I know of. The team I work with completely lives and breathes the core values and mission and that makes the actual job very fulfilling. The support from my managers and leadership is awesome. They want everyone to be in a good fit position and team-wise.

    Cons

    DaVita has extremely high performance expectations and the work environment is very intense. In a way it's a good thing, but can be quite exhausting trying to keep up and also do your job with excellence. The amount of stress and work it takes to be successful in my position is highly undervalued and is not worth the low salary. It teaches work/life balance, but there really is none. Insurance is not that great at all. Not a lot of coverage.

    Advice to Management

    Please increase salaries. This is a for-profit corporation after all.

    I worked at DaVita (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very pleasant and friendly environment, They work around your schedule with school.

    Cons

    You work 16 hours a day. You really don't get to spend time with your family, sometimes you work an entire week with Saturday included.

    Advice to Management

    To take care of your hard working people not to let them go just like that. I know to you were just a number and can be replaced. That's the sad part.

    Great management, at least on my team. Have been very impressed with the thoughtfulness of the people I work with - smart, caring, supportive. Very high quality management all around.

    Keep hiring great people.
