    Pros

    DaVita has a great culture that is conducive to a safe and comfortable workplace. They have core values that they actually seem to care about and follow, and the organization also encourages its teammates to excel.

    Cons

    The pay could be better, but the benefits and compensation package works to make up for that shortcoming.

    Pros

    Very interesting work. Pretty good benefits. Lots of opportunity for learning experiences and advancements, if you want them and are willing to grab them.

    Cons

    Can be hectic, but very rewarding. Raises are not that great, but lots of opportunities for bonuses. Lots of pressure to stay on budget.
