    Pros

    organized and timely communications from senior leadership and people services. high value on partnership over being just a "vendor". strong emphasis on quality and clinical outcomes to improve patient care. offers flexible work environments and opportunities such as telecommuting for managers. promoting work life balance for employees is a top priority here.

    Cons

    no 401K match. instead a profit sharing plan is in place (although it is very discretionary how profits are distributed when profits are to be had). I understand why they are set up this way. However, as a manager, I am missing out on dollars I could be getting with another company.

    Advice to Management

    continue offering flexible work environments and remote positions.

    Pros

    Great company to work for they treat their employee's like family. Opportunity for growth!

    Cons

    Working with the dialysis population is challenging work. You must work to maintain a work-life balance at this company. A lot of pressure to meet metrics but this is common nowadays in healthcare. No 401K match, but they do offer a profit sharing bonus plan that all teammates benefit from.

    Pros

    Pros are if you like recess like a 5 yr old and prefer the companies money going in things like letting you jump rope or play hopscotch instead of paying you a salary you can live on, this is the place for you!

    Cons

    The management here is a joke. Horrendous managers that have no clue what they are doing and show extreme favoritism towards certain employees. Pay is lousy, benefits stink, raises are 1 % even if you get outstanding on your review and they fail to tell you when you get hired that they take every holiday out of your PTO time and the bonuses you get barely pay for gas

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage and learn people skills. Show leadership and learn what an open door policy is instead of having your door shut the entire day and no time for anyone.

    Pros

    DaVita's corporate core values, even though not incorpprated at Deland's location.

    Cons

    Constant lay offs. Disrespectful HR. Lack of proper training. Management is never there.

    Advice to Management

    VERY low lab morale. Respect your employees and reward them. It will pay off. Stop replacing your employees. Not sure what your agenda is, but it doesn't seem you know what you are doing.

    Pros

    I helped people, the patients build relationships with staff, opportunity for training,

    Cons

    Schedule, patients die, overworked and overscheduled to a point that it's unsafe for patients, wealthier patients with involved families.treated better

    Advice to Management

    Give the technicians set schedules. It is a demanding job with long shifts. How can anyone plan their childcare needs, car repairs, family time, etc when the schedule changes every week with one day's notice?!
