    I have been working at Davita Labs

    Pros

    Great building. Great co-workers. Lots of food. Lots of celebrations and activities. You can make the daily routine as fun as the work-load allows. The company's values and ideals are impressively good, although the execution is lacking. Great potential to become what the vision is.

    Cons

    Management doesn't understand the true nature of the work and hence can't fix problems. "Expectancy" of overtime do not align with having a life. No good salaries. No 401K match because they give compensatory bonuses, but you have to live for the company to get a bonus. There is a loooot of work, but the weight of it is not fairly distributed, some employees have kind of a vacation in paradise (no pressure) while others are prisoners of the clock and the turnaround time and management enable this dynamic.

    Advice to Management

    To find efficient ways to help employees you need to know 100% what the work is ALL about. (The only way of knowing is working as another employee....walk the walk!!)

    Immature Human Resources. Very cliquish. Inexperienced. Upper management MUCH to be desired. Not fit for their respective positions. Too much favoratism. Loosing many great folks. Phoney environment. Much back stabbing.

    Hire and outside company to access qualifications of middle and upper management. offer good suggestions - like ridding incompetancy

    Pros

    Good benefits, good family/work balance.

    Cons

    Massive layoffs continue for the past several years. Job Insecurity - number one worry of all employees. Extremely incompetent HR leadership, VERY, VERY unprofessional... Upper management not qualified to be good leaders. Very low lab morale. This definitely is NOT a happy place to work at.

    Advice to Management

    Look around. People are so unhappy and disappointed with this place. The QA department doesn't even exist anymore! Very sad. Davita Labs, Deland became a true horror story. Where is your integrity, leaders???

    Pros

    At Davita Labs, the technical staff in the wet lab are very dedicated and care deeply about the dialysis patients!
    Davita corporate and the lab have a great historical story..
    Davita, the greater company, has meaningful mission and values.

    Cons

    In the several years I've been at Davita, constant waves of terminations keep teammates insecure about their futures. Waves of terminations of great people have again happened this year.
    HR leadership is incompetent, unprofessional and unfair from a fundamental level. Gossip prevails from the upper ranks.
    Extreme favoritism seeps from the executive leadership. Of the 7 DLLS leadership development candidates, 5 were selected from the finance team and none from the Deland wet lab.

    Advice to Management

    You should not have dismantled the Quality department. Without quality, you have no company!
