    Pros

    Mission and passion. Transparent leadership that has best interest of patients and teammates at heart. Teammates have ability to have their voices heard and acted upon.

    Cons

    Pay at entry level seems low but management is taken care of if they “get stuff done”. Not a place if you want to glide.

    I worked at DaVita Rx full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Was wined and dined during training. Compensation was decent, and the reimbursement program was nice to have.

    Cons

    Bait-and-switch hiring scheme. No work/life balance due to demands of the position. Upper management makes knee-jerk decisions with no regards to the repercussions it has on employees in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Don't train for one position and then pull the rug out from under them, especially when a large portion of their compensation depends on it. Work on actually implementing values and morals into the business, rather than theorizing about it like it's some distant pipe dream.

    Pros

    it's the employees that make it a great place to work at, and I like the amount of PTO i get.

    Cons

    Bad insurance, 401k is a sham, and poor business decisions made by upper management.

    Advice to Management

    be honest with teammates and just because you read it in a book doesn't mean it's a great practice.

    I have been working at DaVita Rx full-time

    Pros

    None- I laugh when I see the fake positive reviews about Davita Rx. None are real it’s done to improve the overall rating for recruiting purposes. The truth is this place is horrible.

    Cons

    Just don’t work here it’s the most unethical unprofessional environment ever. The recent positive reviews are fake and posted by upper management to help recruitment and overall company reputation. Ask anyone they will tell you this is the worse company to work for management and leadership is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Close this company

    I have been working at DaVita Rx full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some decent co-workers and a diverse workplace.

    Cons

    Horrible PTO. You get two weeks per year and you have to use PTO for federal holidays.
    Directors are for the most part horribly unqualified and gained his or her position through being part of the inner circle (he or she knows where the skeletons are hidden), and are ridiculously overpaid compared to peers who are not in the inner circle.
    Clinical department is run by a 27 year old who is not even a pharmacist, RN, or any other sort of medical or healthcare professional, and the person has a team of 50 who the person cannot even direct correctly because the person has no clue what they are doing. A great example of the above statement and the inner circle.
    The compliance and legal departments are terribly unqualified, and there is constant turnover in both so there is no full set of compliance policies in place for the business to abide by so each group just does as it pleases, legal or not. Both teams are highly overpaid and supervised by a person out of Denver who is never present.
    The health benefits are mediocre at best.
    This company only caters to Managers and above, and the rest of the workforce is treated like a number.

    Advice to Management

    Actually practice all the core values you speak about and shove down every employee's throat.
    Hire Directors and Managers who are actually leaders and are qualified in whichever department he or she is in.

    Pros

    It is close to home, so the commute wasn't bad

    Cons

    Remote management is completely disconnected from staff. Clueless .

    Advice to Management

    You may feel polite a difficult conversation, but it’s not at all kind to let someone miss an important message. If something is important enough to say, it’s important enough to be straightforward about. Be clear about what you need people to do, whether it’s instructions on a work or a message about performance.
