    I have been working at DaVita full-time (less than an 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

    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.

    I worked at DaVita part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Staff were so friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and wonderful to work for. Salary was competitive and they offer a 401K plan. If someone did not know an answer, we found it out. We all built wonderful rapports with each other and worked as a team!

    Cons

    I did not experience any cons. I guess if I had one, it would be to not care for the patients but that is impossible! It was sad to see one of my patients sick, need surgery, or pass. My patients became part of my family!
