    I worked at DaVita Clinical Research full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers and warm environment.

    Cons

    Senior management was awful and lacked communication. Bonuses were not worth all the effort that was put into the work and half the time they were not doable.

    I worked at DaVita Clinical Research full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Coworkers were great. A fun working environment was valued as apart of the job description. Great physicians and support staff was always very nice. Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    No room for growth. Limited positions, therefore work load was heavy. Department may not last long with the recent selling of the company to a new owner. Lack of support, getting an answer or guidance on anything was like pulling teeth.

    Advice to Management

    Keeping expenditure low is always a good thing, however cutting resources to do so is only going to make things worse. Supply the staff with what they need to be successful, and ultimately your departments will succeed.

    I have been working at DaVita Clinical Research full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    * Work Remote (depending on the team) * Good Benefits * Steady Communication from Senior Management

    Cons

    * Lower than average pay * Challenging to get face to face time with IT or HR * Act like a start-up company (long hours, low pay, high expectations) even though they have been in business for a long time

    Advice to Management

    * Gratitude goes a long way. Be grateful for your team! * Never throw your teammates under the bus - do not talk about them behind their back, do not cast blame, and don't complain to your team. * Work towards building up your team and empowering them. Set clear expectations and ways that the team can see they are being successful.

    Cons

    I have been working at DaVita Clinical Research full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility with PTO, sometimes working from home. Employees are respected by teammates and managers and it's generally a very positive environment.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunities for growth, raises and salaries do not compare with industry competitors, a general feeling of "good enough" rather than "let's strive to be the best"

    Advice to Management

    Include more financial rewards for large projects completed and long-term success in a role.
