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

    Pros

    This lab is filled with so many hard working and warm people!

    Cons

    There are a few negative folks out there that think the "grass is greener" elsewhere. It would be nice if they would kindly move on and not try to bring others down with them.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for all of the opportunities you offer for career growth and development. This truly is an amazing place.

    I have been working at DaVita Labs full-time

    Pros

    Mostly hardworking & loyal people in the trenches

    Cons

    Management turnover makes it tough to build rapport, trust, common vision. Not as much loyalty to long time employees as there used to be.

    Advice to Management

    Remember who helped get us to where we are. Remain loyal to those who remained loyal to the company, regardless of constant management turnstile activity.

    I worked at DaVita Labs full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of awesome people that work at DaVita.

    Cons

    Upper Management and Human Resources are awful. If you are not part of the clique, you are out the door. Core Values are not exemplified by this group. There is zero integrity and accountability for their actions. I witnessed a supervisor belittling and bullying employees on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Start living the core values and be a true example to your employees.

    Cons

    Pay
    Favoritism

    Some people don't care about the patient care

    Advice to Management

    Supervisors need to be around on the floor more, they get to have a work/life balance but not us. There should be less talking and turning around, and more focus on scanning and unloading the truck. Too much standing around when the truck is being unloaded. Many teammates take 20-25 min breaks everyday. The training program needs A LOT of work. New teammates are not learning all they need to know and believe they can goof off when they want, because they see their preceptor being able to do it. Many teammates who have been there for years never have received a raise, even if they say they qualify for one. People discuss their hourly pay with others, so, many of us know that there people starting off with higher wages doing the same job as us. Some have started as low as $9 and as high as $12+. I believe we all should be making the same pay. Knowing some of your team makes dollars more, doing the same job, is discouraging and displays the idea you are not as important. There are teammates that are so discouraged all they talk about is wanting to get out.

    Pros

    Work-life balance, desk job, set schedule

    Cons

    Extremely clicky. Absolutely NO career advancement unless you're in with the management click. Low morale from teammates. Mind games and politics are in full force. Very unstable and anxious work environment. Pay is well below average and promotions do not guarantee a pay increase. Why would anyone want a promotion just to do more work without pay?! Bonuses that were promised to new hires are now a thing of the past as they will be gone in 2018 with the new 401k program. Management is sneaky and hides in their offices. Programs used are WAY behind on the times and server space practically non-existent. Not a day goes by that something is not working. No one takes responsibility for issues when they arise. Training is horrible, "quantity over quality" work is enforced resulting in no resolution of department issues. Management is rarely available and when they are, their disconnected and extremely defensive.

    Advice to Management

    This had been said repeatedly in town hall boxes, management meetings, and huddles..listen to the teammates who actually do the work on a daily. Management says they want to hear from us to make things better but when our feedback is given, we get nothing but push back and then decisions are made without talking to teammates. This organization will never get better with management making decisions based on spreadsheets and data as the data is manipulated. Don't make decisions on things you clearly don't understand. Promote teammates from within who have the knowledge and skill set to lead. Treat your teammates with respect and they will have it for you. Open your eyes and realize things haven't changed for a reason, because you haven't cleaned house. If you're able to gain the trust of teammates back, they will tell you exactly who and what the problems are. Unfortunately, People Services has a rep of discussing confidential information so that door has been closed by many teammates. We need new, qualified leadership to take over. Again, I say LEADERSHIP, not managers. We need people to lead, not sit in offices and run reports all day.

    Pros

    Local, small group not very big, great benefits.

    Cons

    Management uses teammates against each other, encourages to tell on each other which creates resentment and low morale. Pay is low and at annual reviews raise is almost next to nothing. It's a cliquish environment better to smile and try to pretend you're part of it to keep your job

    Advice to Management

    Award hard work with a team hourly wage with real annual increase
