    Pros

    Upper management is really investing in mid and lower management as well as clinic level staff. Lots of room for advancement for those who want to be excellent at what they do!

    Cons

    Dialysis is very fulfilling, but it is hard work. It either grabs you, or it's not your thing.

    Pros

    They exceed expectations in Dialysis Care

    Cons

    Very stressful job. Feel like patient relationships are strained due to expectations it takes away from one on one with the patient. Very under paid for my experience and work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    Staff need more incentives and better pay for what we do as employees I don't feel appreciated or respected.

    Pros

    The people who work here are dedicated professionals and the salary and benefits are some of the best in the health care industry. It is a good place to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Lately management has been concentrating on cutting costs rather than grow the business, and I feel this is a mistake.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of concentrating on cutting costs figure out a way of attracting more business and help the staff become more effective at what they do.

    If you have a good clinic manager the position can be very rewarding and independent for social worker

    Cons

    There isn't any chance to advance as a social worker. Focus is to quantify your skills and abilities, and not quality patient care.

    Advice to Management

    See your social workers as the inspirations they are; and utilize their Masters' prepared skills in the clinics, not for things like transportation.
