    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

    Davita is a awsome place because most people do not talk down to you. The pay is very nice and the people are awesome

    Cons

    None so far. I like the place.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. They already go well out of their way to thank us for our work.

    Pros

    I have never worked at a company who supports the personal and professional growth of it's teammates so passionately. It offers fantastic opportunities for leadership development, clinical skills training and all of the management that I have worked with have been personally supportive of my career at DaVita.

    Cons

    Compensation is lower than where I would like to see it. The benefits are adequate but not great.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be as committed to developing and caring for your patients and teammates as you are now. Never lose sight of our Mission and Values. They are as much a living and breathing part of the Village as our teammates. As long as we continue to make decisions with our Mission and Values in mind we will continue to be successful.

    Pros

    DaVita truly embraces the team concept.
    There are many opportunities for growth.
    Benefits package is among the best in the industry.

    Cons

    The only bad experiences that I had with DaVita were related to individual Facility Administrators that were from strictly clinical backgrounds and had no idea how to manage people effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that middle and lower level managers embrace the team concept and treat their employees with the respect that they all deserve. I think it is very important to try to find Facility Administrators that have a foundation of clinical experience AND formal, college level management training. Some administrators seem to embrace the leadership training that they receive from DaVita while others couldn't care less.

    Pros

    DaVita invests a lot into it's employees in the way of growth. From my experience, all employees are given the opportunity to excel and grow in their career.

    Cons

    This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but the culture is quite different at DaVita. If you're not an extrovert you'll definitely be taken out of your comfort zone at first, but you get used to it and it's a great way to help you grow in the area of "coming out of your shell" if you struggle with it.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a little more attention to the service quality of each business support department as it relates to serving other departments (not only field Teammates and Patients).

    I think DaVita is a great company to work for. I have been here for 5 years and have nothing but good things to say

    Cons

    Benefits could be more competitive, but that's about it. No other real complaints or concerns to share.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be open and honest with those you support. As always, the lines f communication are improtant for all members of the company.
