    I have been working at DaVita full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Direct patient contact for medical/nursing/PA school

    Cons

    Where to start. At least 6 techs have left my facility in the past 6 months. Retention throughout Denver is abysmal because the work is too demanding for the $15 starting pay. There is not enough incentive to pick up shifts at other clinics and the differential for doing so isn't worth it. No 6 month review or pay increase. Want more money? Threaten to quit or apply to ARA. Average raise is maybe $0.50 for a year. They will reimburse you for CCHT exam, but the raise it comes with is a pitiful $0.50. That isn't even worth the hassle of becoming certified! Tuition reimbursement ONLY begins if you register for classes AFTER 90 days of employment. Also, tuition reimbursement ($3k a calendar year) is becoming way more restrictive, only applying for degree seeking student in business or nursing. Meaning your nursing pre-reqs aren't covered unless you are degree seeking and can prove it. RODs (your boss' boss) are no where to be seen.

    I worked at DaVita full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Strong employee-focused corporate culture, high engagement levels, values-focused, provided great services for their patients, meaningful work. Definitely a fun environment. High growth environment.

    Cons

    Sometimes losing productivity with the wacky teammate events. Many more entry-level jobs than growth opportunities, mane employees felt like management didn't listen to their concerns. The office I worked in did not offer much flexibility in regards to working from home. Sometimes a big disparity between how upper management saw the employee experience and how the employees experienced working there. Some inexperienced folks promoted without proprr training of preparation due to the high growth environment.
