Current Employee - Staff Nurse (RN), Renal Dialysis in San Antonio, TX
Current Employee - Staff Nurse (RN), Renal Dialysis in San Antonio, TX

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

Pros

Great place to work for the tech in nursing school. Learn special skills and time management. Benefits are excellent, insurance is affordable, tuition reimbursement is great, CE programs provided in house for techs and nurses, CPR renewal provided in house for techs and nurses. Quarterly bonuses based on clinic performance disbursed twice a year. Many locations to work at in and around the city.

Cons

Long days with back to back shifts. Not much time for family. High tech and nurse turnover. Heavy work load, uneven distribution of tasks. Those who perform well are often rewarded with more work. Leadership varies depending on your Facility Administrator and how long they remain at that clinic. FA positions heavily rotated and/or turnover is high. Policy and procedure should be standard, but performance /enforcement varies heavily from one clinic to another.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

FA leadership and employee confidence improves when leaders have strong clinical background. Management should talk with employees more to find out what is going on with them personally, may help prevent unnecessary turnover.

    Current Employee - Home Program Manager

    I have been working at DaVita full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    For-profit mindset, Fast paced environment, great training grounds for new managers, opportunity to take on more than what's in the job description if one does well

    Cons

    Everyone is looking to get a piece of their own, will milk the last drop of blood out of you if you let 'em but that's typical of corporate america, no 401 K matching, performance-based bonuses for top performer only, lower than expected salary for CA, corporate/strategy jobs limited to Denver, upward mobility for MBAs, little diversity of mgmt styles

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lack of diversity (in management style, background, approach, ethnicity and gender) will be the demise of DaVita if we don't adapt
