    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.

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

    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.
