    I worked at Dialysis Clinic Inc full-time

    Pros

    Higher nurse/technician to patient ratios than most clinics. It was busy, but for the most part not over whelming. For the most part, professional environment. Over-time was expected occasionally, but this cut into the company budget, so it was not mandatory.

    Cons

    Pay is much less than other dialysis facilities. Raises left a lot to be desired as well. Small company, not a lot of room for growth.

    Pros

    Benefits are fairly good. They allow business casual dress. You are able to make your own hours and your work area is is of ample size.

    Cons

    Administration promises they take care of their Billing staff. You literally interview for hours, which basically turns into nothing more then an interrogation. Once hired, management avoids you. An Administrator makes negative innuendos toward staff, which make them feel belittled and unimportant. When you offer input, you are asked if this may not be the right job for you. You are basically threatened with your job when you show concern and interest in trying to improve any process. Management is not open to you informing them of billing issues or trends. Administrator constantly asks about the same inquiries with each monthly A/R Meeting but fails to do anything. When you ask about why management is failing to want to address Billing and A/R issues, they put a spin on it, trying to make it look like their really busy, or will try to make it look like the staff is lazy. It's a constant battle, and you realize early on that the administration is not what you thought he was. They make themselves look good with corporate, while at the same time, making the downfalls look like it is caused by staff. It is always the office management who would not back up staff or address issues brought to their attention. Poor quality Administration. This was the sole cause of the billing department to shut down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire administrators/management who listen to staff who work directly with Billing and A/R. Be open to concerns. If you listen, your staff can help you avoid issues and pitfalls. Dont belittle your staff. Utilize their talents and ability to help you improve the department instead of threatening them and making negative comments and threats to their jobs. Your staff can help resolve problems. Don't put your vanity first. Treat your staff with respect and not try to turn your mistakes and errors around and make it look like your staff, when it is your own fault.

    I have been working at Dialysis Clinic Inc full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    DCI has excellent insurance benefits and the cost is very low compared to other companies. They are very liberal with PTO and have an excellent training program. The company's motto is, 'The patient is the reason for our existence' and the patients are treated very well. Many patients have commented that they are treated better at DCI and that the focus is more on the patient then trying to penny pinch.

    Cons

    There isn't a lot of room for growth and there are limited opportunities for advancement. They do not pay as much as for profit dialysis clinics. Otherwise it is a great place to work for. This also depends on your individual manager but for the most part it is an excellent place to work.

    I have been working at Dialysis Clinic Inc full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very dedicated staff and local management. Perfect opportunity to provide one on one patient care and monitoring improvement/decline in health status.

    Cons

    Due to nation wide healthcare changes (current and future), ability for quality patient care seems to be declining. Corporate level management does not seem to notice the loss of good patient care as long as outcomes are up to par with treatments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more growth options for current employees outside of moving to TN to fill a Corporate job. Provide opportunities within communities other than Nashville, TN.

    Pros

    Small company so although the workload is still great it's bearable and not as overwhelming as you would find in large hospitals. Because of this it is easier for Dialysis Technician's and Nurses to maintain close supportive relationships with patients without ever feeling burnout.

    Cons

    Because this is a non-profit company the salary range is small and set. There is not a lot of room at all for professional advancement and non at all for earning raises and bonuses.

    Pros

    Pros

    Typically secure position if you do your work. Open to new ideas. Annual meetings for management in Florida. Good benefits, lower pay scale vs other dialysis clinics in the area. Micro management if you like that style. Communication with HQ is improving.

    Cons

    In Kansas City, upper management are burnt out and there is a high amount of office politics. High turnover and low regard for the floor staff with minimal education involvement. On the local level there is poor communication and favoritism is prevalent.
