I have been working at DaVita full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Great culture, supportive upper management in most respects. It is odd in this company to find someone who is really unhelpful or difficult to work with. They just aren't around long because they fit in so poorly with the overall attitude of the company. It is one of the best places I've ever worked and has more room for advancement than any other I've found.

Cons

The Redwoods program that guarantees a business major a promotion to Regional Director after a relatively short period of time can affect the morale of those who have come up through the ranks. They tend to be less understanding of the clinical portion of the job, which is essential to understanding the overall functioning of the region. Pay is less than industry standard and is not compensated by the bonuses that are promised at the initial interviews.

Advice to Management

Reconsider the Redwoods program. Underwrite business degrees for current employees with a larger annual scholarship than the current general scholarship.

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

    Pros

    Stable paycheck
    Good people to work with (nurses)
    Good location
    Good facilities
    Great AA
    will learn a great deal from experience as long as you please the FA.
    FA can appear friendly.
    Minimal resources.

    Cons

    Upper management is selfish and manipulative.
    FA and GFA is undesirable and unfair. Won't give you the resources you need to complete the task.
    MICRO-Managed. Don't believe in anything you have to say. Low pay. NO OverTime whatsoever.
    Also FA is a control freak and will follow you around and has trust issues. I was fired even though I made every attempt to better myself. They discriminate military. Treat you like you were treated in the military.

    Advice to Management

    Hire well rounded individuals who know how to take care of their peoples needs and stop being so greedy.

    I worked at DaVita full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    When DaVita lives up to its values (helping employees in need, volunteer work, etc.), it is a great example of what a company should do. Because the work is hard and hours many, you can build some great skills.

    Cons

    Pay is middle of the road. Not a place to spend entire career. Insurance companies are paying less for care so it will be tough sledding. Redwood program brings in young MBAs who are promoted to roles without understanding the impact it has on morale of others. Many Redwoods have negative impact but still remain with company. To non-Redwoods, advancement does not seem possible. Cliques, cliques, cliques.

    No 401K match. They keep telling people that there is no reason and profit sharing is better. Still, people ask, so the message is not getting out nor well received.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate the need for Villagewide.

    Think long and hard about the benefits vs downsides of Redwood program.
