    great culture, focus on business & patients, great goals

    Cons

    too many distractions, too much fun attitude, departments don't work well together, difficult to get promotes unless you "know the people", fake friendliness

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management can be clicky, pick and choose certain employees to help and ignore others

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. Great company to have good work/life balance . Have great team outings which would be baseball games , putt putt, main event and what not.

    Cons

    Pay. Packers don't make great money but is always asked to stay late and help finish packing PT's meds. Gets old and boring. PTO IS good but we have to use PTO FOR HOLIDAY PAY.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We shouldn't have to use PTO for holiday pay.

    Pros

    They put fourth the effort to help you obtain you goals and practice patient-centered care for the chronically ill, while rewarding excellent performance in the workplace.

    Cons

    There are very few cons to working here, but one can make the job difficult if they do not bring the right attitude and desire to provide excellent service to our patients.

    Pros

    People are nice. Everyday workers as always. Not much pros other than silly little morale videos .

    Cons

    Monitor bathroom breaks. All time is PTO time including holidays. Evil company. No growth potential. If this is the only job you can get, I guess you have to eat. Think George Orwell 1984!

    I have been working at DaVita Rx full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Luckily Sup very flexible w/hours/schedule and not the micromanage type. Love that it's a casual dress code all week. You work w/some awesome people, w/so many new faces they still take the time to come by to say hi. Another plus is that the Paladina clinic service is provided and just next door. All in all pretty cool environment to be in if you know how to ignore the drama and enjoy the good.

    Cons

    *I actually, for the first time enjoy what i do but biggest complaint about the company are the "raises" that are provided. Wish they would keep up w/the cost of living. Yes economy bad, so why not cut back on the decor, catering, t-shirts or little unnecessary gadgets provided that more than half of the people throw away. It's a big slap in the face when they keep thanking you for all the hard/good work you provide and then present you with a $0.17 or so raise?! Then when bonuses come around feels as though they wave the money in our faces then take part of it away because goal was not met.
    *if you have plans on moving up or just switching depts be prepared, favoritism a big factor. Seems its always the same people getting promotions or getting away with not doing anything due to being booty buddies w/someone of upper management.
    *Sometimes the choice of managers/sups hired makes one wonder what were they thinking. They come in clueless, can't really help with a work issue/question, feels like we have a babysitter with a title instead of a leader to guide us. Its no surprise when a few months later they are either getting a "promotion" or no longer there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you care at all keep tabs on what is happening out on the floor, among tm's & sups.

    Pros

    Part of a parent company, DaVita. Which is a good thing as this allows DaVita Rx to be competitive with salary, benefits, and culture. There are a lot of good people working to do the right things well.

    Cons

    Depending on your department, opportunity for advancement can be halted quickly. Upper management has some challenges to work out. The kinks are palpable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company feels like it is catering to younger employees and not the most skilled or knowledgeable. Again depending department.
