    I have been working at DaVita full-time

    Pros

    DaVita does invest in their teammates and I've had more training and development than any organization. Their tuition reimbursement and scholarship program is great as well as the free internal training's they offer. You'll work with a lot of people who are passionate about the well-being of their teammates and improving healthcare. With that said, there are a lot of metrics to focus on and the workload can be really high. Don't expect to coast in this organization.

    Cons

    Compensation isn't leading but there are a lot of other amazing perks and other benefits that make up for this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work on getting input from teammates on what improvements can be made and acting on their input.

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

    Pros

    I have a fair amount of autonomy in my current positions and work closely with both physicians and patients. I have great patient technicians and enjoy my work.

    Cons

    There is definitely a gap between the corporate office and the daily workings of the clinics, which can be frustrating.

    I have been working at DaVita full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, education and training opportunities. Lots of opportunity for growth. Great company culture, once you get used to it.

    Cons

    Pay is at low end of range. Lots of redundant tasks as an FA. Not really an administrator position, more of a nurse manager type role. Company culture feels a little like like you've just joined a cult, with all the unnecessary lingo and acronyms a new person feels very alienated until they start speaking the language. It's healthcare, we already have a common language. Why make up your own?

    Advice to Management

    Stop making floor nurses into FAs! These poor nurses are not equipped to run a busy healthcare clinic. They have no business experience, no leadership training and no onsite HR, regulatory or mgmt support. You're burning them out. I hear all the time "it takes a year to learn the FA role". That's absurd, it should be possible for a good administrator to step into the role and thrive. The company inconsistencies make it difficult, and again a floor nurse with no healthcare leadership experience is being set up to fail.

    I worked at DaVita part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    One of the BEST Companies I was able to Grow at!
    I learned many things here and I'm very grateful for this and I met some really amazing people. It wasn't just a Co-Worker or Patient experience, we were family!

    The company has continuous self paced and Instructor led training and an Annual Davita University, that selected employees can attend atleast once in their career. If I was offered that awesome Full time position in my area, I would still be there today! It's so many wonderful things I have to say about this company.

    Cons

    A Full time opportunity as an AA, in my clinic wasn't ever in the budget.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the Great work, and continue to make each day positive!
