    Pros

    DaVita does an excellent job in connecting the thousands of teammates so that the company does function as a village. DaVita strives to fulfill its' mission.

    Cons

    Each dialysis clinic is different according to the facility culture and management style of the Facility Administrator. Some clinics have a very high turn-over due to employee dissatisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example, and do not allow a toxic environment be the cause of high employee turn-overs.

    Pros

    -flexible employer, diverse, education assistance, team work promoted

    Cons

    Multiple layers of management-so stifling to the mission, long history of nepotism, frequently roll out changes without tried and true practices

    Advice to Management

    Company is not in anyway "the" DaVita I fell in love with less than 10 years ago. Multiple layers of mid-managers have gone unchecked and it's a terrible place

    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.
