Pros

Fresenius Medical Care is overall a great company to work for. They are very good at training their employees and with a fexible schedule it allows for a family life as well.

Cons

I think the only downside to work here is that there aren't many people in the office. It's a very quiet office and I am more used to an upbeat atmosphere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think allowing empolyees to make more decisions and less micromanaging would be helpful. If you hire people to do a job you must have confidence that they will get it done.

    Pros

    Extremely stable. They controlled >90% market share, so if you are competent you won't be fired or laid off

    Cons

    Extremely slow paced and for good reason. The machine simply works great, so they don't make many changes. Product cycle 7-8yrs with minor changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a fine job based on the industry you are in. But see if we can do some more out of the box thinking and make some major strides in better designing the product.

    A great place to work

    Pros

    The benefits are great, the time off is higher than most others in the healthcare field. The company is number one in the field of dialysis. High tech machines and evidence based care.

    Cons

    It is difficult to know how to advance within the clinic. Other than a yearly cost of living, there is no chance for a significant raise. Newer staff are hired at a higher wage than staff that have been here for years. There should be an open and fair wage scale. Younger workers donn't understand that this is very hard work, so turn over is high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In the era of bundling it will be a challenge to balance costs, patient care, and personnel costs. However, it was a huge slap in the face 2 years ago when staff were told no raises because there is a recession. The next day company put out a statement that it made more money in that fiscal year than ever before.
