    I have been working at DaVita full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    WAS a great company in 2002-2005

    Cons

    I have worked for this company for 10 years. I dedicated my life to this place. I gave up vacations, weekends and most nights. I was asked to start up a department and was given no staff, and next to no compensation. I lived the DaVita core values, until 7/12 when I was informed that my position had been eliminated. After all I had given up, I was pushed out by a new VP, Alan Cullop an IT hatchet man! There was no "team" or core values. They like to say "Village first, company second" and is as much bull_hit as it sounds. This company came in and cut several very long term employees for profit! This is a 7BILLION dollar company that has nickle and dimed us to death. For the last 6 years, I had been asked to "sacrifice" and take a 1% annual increase, while I have a 4 year old laptop that I use to death daily. I telecommute and at first, DaVita was paying my phone and internet bill, but that went away. Then I was asked to pay for the privilege of having a DaVita cell phone that I could be called on at any time, day or night...just ridiculous. I can go on and on, but you get the picture, a clikie bunch or jerks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your pursuit of more and more profit will kill this company. Kent Thiry WAS a good CEO when he cared for the employees, but as usual with these large enterprises, profit became more important that humans. My advise? Stop screwing good people!
