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

    Pros

    Davita is not just a big company, they care about their employees. Davita has a generous PTO and employee benefits program. They truly believe in their core values of Fulfillment, Fun, Excellence, Team, Continuous Improvement and Integrity from the top down. They support their "team mates", employees in encouraging a balanced and fulfilling life by realizing each is an individual and the job is not the whole person. I am impressed with the integrity of this company.

    Cons

    I would rather have the option of getting our bonus in cash or putting it in a 401K next year

    Cons

    Very clicky very much depends on who likes you and who doesn't

    Advice to Management

    As a former employee, then former patient- not a lot of people like your over the top diversity. Not being able to understand your teammates makes a huge impact on customer satisfaction. Mulitple times supervisors were replaced with advance degreed third world country people or military either with no medical background guess there was reason for so many of us supervisory teammates including the vp left.
