Davita thrives in creating a fun culture in the clinic. Compared to previous employers, they provide a lot of fun opportunities and take care of their teammates.
Team is always encouraged.
Freedom to work independently
This is dependent on the clinic but this clinic allows independence. As long as the work is completed no one gets involved in managing our schedules.
We have weekly and monthly meetings to discuss how we are doing as a clinic.
Women are treated fairly.
Attitude towards older colleagues
I think there is a preference for younger and less expensive teammates.
Company offers training courses in leadership and assists people to move into management if they are interested.
Overall compensation for your work
For an LCSW I can receive higher pay at a hospital but I would lose the flexibility from this position.
Office / Work Environment
It is very cold but it is necessity due to being a medical clinic. Social workers have their own office.
The goal is there and talked about often but sometimes they don't respect our time off and contact to gather more information about patients during time off.
It's a company with good quality care for patients and I value going above and beyond for them.
Yearly training done.
Social worker position is difficult because we are stuck between being patient advocates and ensuring the clinic is meeting the adequate scoring. As social workers we take on all the grief our patients experience. It is challenging but rewarding at the same time.
Inclusive / Diverse
As long as people don't support union then you will be okay.
Suggestions for improvement
- Clear assignments for all teammates. Better way to communicate between floor and back staff. More fun activities.
What I like about the company
Being able to make own work schedules. Being trusted to complete work and not be micromanaged. Being able to share thoughts and be taken seriously. Company understands the role of a social worker and utilize us for our purpose.
What I dislike about the company
Unclear information of what is considered full case load. Low pay for LCSW.
