    I worked at DaVita part-time

    Pros

    Leadership is very conscious about reinforcing the culture of improving patient care.

    Cons

    Some long time teammates (employees) in operations do not have experience outside of the company so they don't always know the best practices.

    Advice to Management

    Do more benchmarking around operations to educate on what others know instead of reinventing the wheel.

    Pros

    Great experience with healthcare. Great relationships with patients. They pay for schooling. Free lunch most of the time. Hours are always available

    Cons

    Not enough money, long hours, crazy lazy nurses. Bad benefits, crazy busy days. Patients passing away suck.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees more money. Its hard yo work long hours and barely get compensation. When I leave the job my limbs are killing me.

    Pros

    I really like working for DaVita. Management truly strives to find the best role for you. They really stand by their core values. The company does a good job of not only supporting their teammates, but also the surrounding communities. The main goal is to be the best provider for the patient.

    Cons

    The salary is not competitive with the rest of the industry. There is no vacation, holiday, or sick time. You accrue what is called paid time off (pto) and unfortunately there is not much of it.

    Pros

    Outstanding corporate culture which allows you to grow professionally & personally. The company offers outstanding benefits and tries to stay up to date on current technological and social trends.

    Cons

    The staffing structure is very minimal which allows for very little flexibility and provides an environment in which any unexpected variable has an impact on the entire clinical team. The capacity of each individual is stretched to the point that team morale is hampered.

    Advice to Management

    Reassess the staffing policy for clinics and the pressure put on Facility Administrators to perform both clinical and managerial tasks.

    Pros

    Good Company to work for overall

    Could use better benefits. A little bit too much telling their employees what a great company they are... Almost seemed a little cultish.
