Former EmployeeWorked in Distribution/sales at Southwest Kidney-Davita Dialysis Partners, LLC in Denver, CO.

What I like

I have a student in nursing school the management team help me get an internship at their company. They were really great at showing me the culture of the company and how it is to work with a great corporation.

What I dislike

How do you spell that they allow third-party doctors to come and assess their patients for very small amounts of time I believe there should be more careful analysis on how much time the provider spend with each patient it could really help the patient in the long run.

Suggestions for improvement

As I mentioned previously the biggest part of this company or the patient’s well-being. When a provider comes in to check on a patient for less than two minutes it is a bit concerning. I believe our patients with insurance or without insurance should have a better check up an analysis on how they’re feeling and doing dialysis is a large part of their life

What I like

The company encourages diversity and inclusion and puts an emphasis on work place culture.

What I dislike

Communication and inter-department collaboration is a major weakness. They also do not pay us close to industry standard and it is hard to afford life with what they pay us.

Suggestions for improvement

The biggest thing I would change immediately would to create and update training materials for all functions and responsibilities and the various teams throughout the company.

What I dislike

Upper Management doesn't trust Rods & FAs to manage their teams without interference. Upper mgmt spends on themselves & denies perks to employees.

Their needs to be better & more oversight on upper management & the budgeting needs to be more fair.

EmployeeWorked in Human resources/recruiting at Davita in Denver, CO at the time of review.

What I like

The company has a unique culture, which isn't for everyone. The benefits are sub-par & costly & upper management is horrible.

What I dislike

Davita often hires management/upper management level employees who have zero people skills & who are about climbing the corporate latter & don't care about those beneath them. Also benefits aren't good & they charge an arm & a leg for them.

Suggestions for improvement

I would clean house when it comes to upper management & vet new hires better. I would also offer a choice in insurance place & shop around to get a better benefits package for employees.
