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

    Pros

    This company really believes in investing in it's "teammates". The company itself truly believes in it's core values which is difficult to find in corporate America these days. As in any large corporation (DaVita is a Fortune 200 company), it is up to the leadership at the facility level to really create an environment where the team also feels those core values at play. Professional development is taken very seriously, and there are so many training curriculums and growth opportunities to help equip teammates at every level to do their job well and create opportunity for advancement--most of which include traveling which is a plus for many people (myself included) I've made really good professional connections at several trainings I have attended, many that have turned into friendships that I believe will follow me.

    Cons

    The company considers itself the gold standard of the dialysis industry. With that said, there are challenges for any role. There are metrics to meet and policies to adhere to. This may be a con to some people who are just looking to collect a check. In my opinion, being challenged is a positive, especially when the company does try to provide you with the tools and resources to be successful.

    Pros

    Training rated highly in the industry. Team approach atmosphere. Teammates morale is very important to Leadership and will be addressed on how to improve often. Overall the most positive company I have had the pleasure to work for in my career. Communication is also highly rated from Leadership to Front Line.

    Cons

    Can experience long hours at times of the year when hospital census is high. I've heard other related companies may pay more but then cut hours to compensate for budget targets.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to reflect the All for One and Team Core Value. it makes a big difference to work for a company where that is lived throughout the company and not just the Front lines.

    Pros

    I've worked at Davita for over 10 years in the Acutes. I started as an acute nurse and have worked my way up to an Acute Group Hospital Administrator. If you want to be part of a great team, strive for career growth and be part of something great, Davita is the place for you.

    Cons

    As with acute dialysis there can be long days and call. At Davita we strive to provide flexible scheduling and a team work approach.
