    Pros

    I work in the city and always get at least 30 hrs when rural hospitals might only get 10

    Cons

    Parking in the city adds to your overall day away from your family and commute can be brutal

    Pros

    works around family obligations and understands importance of quality family time. If you are at work late then its fine to come in late the next day. I always get the requests that I ask for and the the vacation that I want, when I want it.

    Cons

    Cant make plans on days that you work because you never know when you'll be done. Sometimes the days are insanely long. Your day is always changing and nothing is ever set in stone.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistant with rules /policies. Let people know what is expected of them so that they know what to do.

    Pros

    Great company with lots of room for upper growth. I started as a Pct and within a year and a half was running a unit.

    Cons

    A lot of people talk about pay as being a con. It's important to get paid for the work that is done and when you have a environment the is not fulfilling no matter how much I get paid it wouldn't be enough. I agree that pay should be increased for the line staff on the treatment floor as it doesn't compare to our market, however just because the pay increases doesn't mean job satisfaction also increases. It's up to us as clinical leaders to make each clinic a special place to work. DAVITA allows that to happen when I have worked for Davita.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look at pay practices for line staff and do market analysis to ensure our pay is what the market suggest it should be for our area of business.

    Pros

    Davita is a great company to work for as well as having some of the best great benefits of all time! You won't regret this job one bit! This company allows you to grow and succeed!

    Cons

    Desk job, which was extremely hard for me. Some drama that was not needed but that happens when you work in a tightknit workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Such a great culture to advance in! I had many opportunities to grow here and am thinking I should not have left!

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement within the company and nationwide clinics. Different fields are offered...ex.--PD,training available, chronic, acutes. Family oriented environment. CEU'S provided

    Cons

    Clinics are run with minimum staffing. No room for errors. Examples---when teammates call in. Some clinics need to be updated and run the same across the board.

    Advice to Management

    Needs more sufficient staff. Recognize seniority.
