Clinic Director (Former Employee) – Muncie, IN – October 25, 2016
A new company that bought previous company I had worked for. They hired a Divisional Manager who fired all 3 managers which I was one of them. This new company had to wait at least one year to remove managers which they did this. While there I started in center programs that benefited the staff and patients. I worked for the previous company for 12 yrs. I had a good relationship with all of the nephrologists that saw patients at the clinic and any one of them will give me an excellent review.
worked at that clinic for 12 yrs
new company removed all clinic managers after 1 year.
Lead Clinical Social Worker and Case Manager (Former Employee) – Chula Vista, CA – December 15, 2015
The work environment can be stressful under certain managers. The management take their time with complaints, from patients or employees, but eventually get the job done. The co-workers are all very hard working nurses and technicians. The doctors are top notch and take their job seriously and it was a pleasure to work with the entire staff.
The hard working staff. Good salary compared to other competitors.
No room to grow, no advancement in the position I had as social worker.
Nobody cares about or defends you during tuff times
Corporate Employee (Former Employee) – SC – July 12, 2015
I was a corporate employee twice (laid off twice due to no fault of my own) but started as a secretary. This company is great but the managers are only out for themselves and if you get any kind of complaints against you, you aren't able to defend yourself. My boss avoided conflict at ANY COST and that even meant terminating me when an outside affiliates manager had a personal issue with me & fabricated a reason not to work with me.
I loved being an employee at DSI but just know you are ALWAYS disposable to higher management unless it benefits them. They will get rid of you in a heartbeat and throw you under the bus to make themselves look good.
The nephrology office they work with as an affiliate in SC has AWFUL management but amazing doctors so if you work here you also have to deal with that. The management there finds any way they can to make people's work lives difficult.
A typical day at DSI is to come in clock in and start working your claims. We normally had a certain amount of claims to work monthly. Our phone calls were monitored as well as our production. As far as co-workers we were not allowed to talk amongst one another nor ask for help if needed, we were suppose to figure it out ourselves. I enjoyed the job but overall management was not professional at all.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Muncie, IN – July 17, 2014
DSI is a good dialysis company and at the clinical level a great place to work. Caring for patients is why I am a RN and this company allows me to fulfill that part. Areas of advancement are nonexistent within the company. It seems advancement form within is discouraged and advancement from without is encouraged. In the past year announcements concerning placement of clinical mangers from outside the company were common, at least in my area.
Ability to care for patients and become an important part of the healing process
I found management to very cold and the work to be unsatisfying. Because the company was losing money fast and in the red, advancement and even raises were skim to nothing. The culture was cut throat and every man for himself.
Productivity throughout my time at DSI Renal, Inc.
Biomedical Technician (Former Employee) – Kaneohe, HI – February 11, 2014
I like working for DSI Renal, Inc.because there was something different to do everyday from checking results, monitoring the water treatment room, restocking supplies, weekly/monthly inventory control, maintaining supplies, and helping others. Another reason why I liked DSI Renal, Inc. is that there is a lot of responsibility that comes with job and the work keeps you busy until the day is over.
Pay, Benefits, Co-Workers, and Job Area
Management Control, Minimal Overtime, and No direction.
Administration Manager (Former Employee) – AZ – April 12, 2016
They make the managers work the floor daily and do all of the admin work on top of it-the VP has no caring for the employees either-it's all about the money-actually in "all" dialysis facilities and I have worked and managed six clinics. People in dialysis are ruthless-very few care for the patients-especially DSI-Period!
a typical day at work was hectic and fast paced, I learned a lot about dialysis. Management was cooperative, and co workers were fun. The hardest part about the job is that you are responsible for up to 180 facilities, however the most enjoyable part about the job was helping the patients and feeling like your work made a difference.
stressful do to lack of help and employees with no empathy or character.
RN (Former Employee) – bartlett Tn – February 27, 2014
A typical day at work started off behind because there wasn't enough help. I learned that the medical field is not for everyone.There is a lot of people working in the medical field that don't need to be. The turn around rate for managers was terrible. We went a year without a manager . The co-workers wouldn't listen to the managers they did whatever they could to make them quit. The managers wouldn't fire them either because they would have to fill in for them or because the turn around rate was terrible for the co-workers to.The hardest part of the job was trying to keep a safe ,peaceful,and clean environment for the patient.The most enjoyable part of the job was when you could achieve that safe, peaceful ,and clean environment it made the patients so happy and that made you happy.
