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

    Pros

    Developing relationships with patients and families while keeping high level nursing skills in use.

    Cons

    Sometimes short staffed due to frequent call ins usually could not be helped but put the rest of the staff in hot water.

    Advice to Management

    Give raises to keep your rising stars!

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

    Pros

    Democratic decision-making
    Wonderful mission. Keeping people alive and helping them live their best lives.
    Ability to grow your career
    Leaders who really care about me. Teammates I really care about.

    Cons

    Several senior execs are jerks. It's not the norm thankfully and local leaders including Director and VP are great.
    Work-life balance can easily get tilted toward DaVita if you let it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in making this a special place and a Village

    Senior execs who get results but are jerks are not worth it

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

    Pros

    I have a very supportive leadership team that continues to help me expand my knowledge and stretch my capabilities. I am very lucky to have an open line of communication with my manager and director whom both support the direction I want to take in my career and provide me with opportunities that support it.

    Cons

    Very fast-paced. Senior leadership often steers one direction then abruptly changes their mind with little to no rationale. I understand the need to be flexible but spending 20+ hours to support something just to have a leader completely change their mind and ignore your work.

    Advice to Management

    Make long-term success a priority and adjust capacities and team assignments to align with this. For example, if a system is consistently having issues, fix the core problem instead of temporary, bandaid-type solutions, over and over again. Stay open minded - DaVita will never achieve it's potential if leadership does not embrace the ideas of individual contributors.

    Pros

    Company really makes an effort to make things fun and treat employees well. Decent base pay and nice coworkers. Great benefits and lots of opportunity to move within the company if you're good at your job.

    Cons

    Raises are kind of a joke. I know many people who received raises of $0.30/hr or something similar at their annual review. Can be difficult to stay interested when the job is so much of the same thing from one day to the next depending on your position.

    Advice to Management

    Take your employees' feedback to heart. Ensure you're offering raises that at least cover cost of living increases.
