    I worked at American Renal Associates full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and ability to use overtime hours works as PTO. Most lower level employees seemed to be hourly which was great during busier times because the opportunity to earn overtime was there.

    Cons

    If you don't like cliques, catty 30-something year old women or HR departments that brush things under the rug then this isn't the company for you. It felt just like high school all over again. I saw more grown women cry while working there than I think I did during the ending of Marley & Me. Corporate is a disaster. Most of the nurses and employees at the clinics had zero organizational skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop protecting and promoting the bad apples. Don't let one or two people spoil the potential to have legitimate hardworking employees.

    I worked at American Renal Associates full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Wonderful patients, hour lunch. Some co workers make the long hours less hard.

    Cons

    Poor management, unprofessional demeanor of Charge Nurse, poor employee scheduling, shortened "turn over" time, absolutely no help from lazy nurses, Corporate is always rude when called.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire team players. Take critical complaints seriously, disallow gossip on treatment floor, our patients hear everything. The patients are ill. Do you really think they need to worry about unstable caregivers? I would never recommend anyone to dialyze here.

    Pros

    Usually a flexible work schedule depending on which unit you work. Most staff is great to work with.

    Pros

    patients are amazing here. Our manager on the other hand, no one likes her and shes out to cut everyone throat behind their backs

    Cons

    Cooperate needs more involved in the management here. Cooperate has been told on several occasions but decides to not get involved. We have lost some really good staff and patients here. Lisa is not a person to work for. I strongly discourage anyone from working there. Hopefully I won't be much longer!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close the place.

    Pros

    thank goodness or it would be unbearable..

    Cons

    because mainly, when they DO fly into town, they proceed to pick apart the staff's performance using intimidation, threats, and humiliation. I suppose this is done to make it appear (to their own manager's) as if they ARE actually doing something?! Even if there's some degree of truth to what's being said, it's far TOO critical and disrespectful in the manner of presentation, & often extremely unrealistic in terms of the expectations... Really thought it had been established that this style of management simply does not inspire or motivate people who work..for anyone.. anywhere..ever..?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please get your employee's who are in positions of management some updated training! The present practices that are in place are "old school ". Your employee's are NOT cattle who need "prodding". They are human-beings who deserve respect and want to go home each day knowing they made a contribution and that they are valued as ARA team members.
