    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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    DaVita has a wonderful culture, we have ample benefits, not the best but definitely not the worst. The downtown Denver offices are phenomenal and have all of the amenities. Team culture definitely depends on the team, but overall is very positive. The core values of the company are extremely important and they do their best to live by them. Our Mayor and CEO are both extremely enthusiastic and drive the overall mission and values.

    Cons

    Teammates are definitely kept busy, but it is rewarding work
    3 weeks of PTO is good, but definitely not great.
    I have heard that it can be hard to grow within the company, however in recruiting we see internal teammates move to new roles all of the time. Advice was given to me to really be your own advocate when looking for growth.

    Pros

    You have to own your leadership. Those who sit back and want everything handed to them won't succeed. This company gives you the tools and resources and really invests in you.

    Cons

    They don't tell you that you have to own you career path. This isn't a con, but more of an eye opener. You will succeed or fail based on your dedication to the role and company.

    Advice to Management

    We are an ever evolving company with high expectations. We change as we grow.
