    I have been working at DaVita full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Leader in Kidney Care and clinical outcomes. Clinical jobs are numerous and well compensated as are high level corporate positions.

    Cons

    Medium level corporate and non medical positions under compensated and under valued. Corporate culture borderlines on cult-ish in nature.

    Advice to Management

    Less Cool-aid, more focus on market competitive compensation.

    Pros

    Amazing dedication to patient care. A unique culture albeit a bit unusual. Great team work. Excellent people. Decent work life balance. Lots of team celebrations. Great location in Downtown Denver.

    Cons

    Lack of pay which results in not being able to hire the best of the best. No one willing to make tough decisions because everything is done by committee. Lack o 401k match in this highly competitive market. Too many meetings since everything is done by committee.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes someone in the room has to make a decision without worrying about everybody's feelings. In addition, when someone speaks up and makes a good decision, they should not be shunned and labeled for it. Hire professionals and let them do their job.

    Pros

    Team support. Strong Core Values. The constant interaction you have with the patients weekly. The idea of giving some one life through providing dialysis.

    Cons

    The longs hours that Registered nurses have to do, a typical day is around 5:30 in the morning until around nine thirty or some times ten at night.

    Advice to Management

    It would help if the facility administrators and the whole management team would be more involved with the day to day things that occur on the floor instead of just looking at numbers.
