I have been working at Fresenius Medical Care - North America

Pros

Culture of respect for employees and patients alike, provides tools and training to get the job done, excellent work environment, decent salary & benefits. I'm sure that each work site is different, but at mine, people work together well as a a team, are friendly and helpful. The company also goes out of its way to express appreciation for a job well done, both on a personal level as well company-sponsored events.

Cons

Sr. management sometimes is clueless or makes decisions without sufficient evaluation of input from middle management. Sometimes lack of resources cause individual workers' priorities to be shifted on an ever-changing basis.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more attention to what the line managers are telling you about problems with the business.

    FMCNA IS THE WORST PLACE TO WORK!

    Pros

    There are really no good reasons to work with FMCNA. It has been a complete mess working here since RCG was bought out by FMCNA. The only true reason I can think of that would be a good reason is that you get attatched to your patients since you see them very frequently.

    Cons

    The management is horrible, they never praise you for the good things that you do. They overload you with extra work that they are supposed to be completing. They belittle you infront of your patients and make you feel that you dont know what you are doing and that you can't do anything right. The Management has favorite employees that get away with everything. The upper management never sees what goes on in the clinic and they just go by what thier clinic managers say goes on. The techs are treated like crap and they are blamed for everything, including labs that they have no control over. The techs get yelled at for HCT and HGB's levels that are low and also Albumin levels that are low and the dietician is supposed to be assisting in this and encouraging patients to take care of this. Techs are yelled at if they do not do the job of tech, dietician and socialworker, because they do not hire enough of these other professions to take care of the demand. I have handled many of these tasks because we did not have a social worker or a dietician at one time. It has made my time with the company miserable and I wish that RCG would have never sold to FMCNA. They just plain suck, don't waste your time with this crappy company, trust me you will not like it. As soon as I can obtain a better job I will leave and I know almost all of the rest of my fellow employees will too. There is a very high turnover due to the horrible company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit your jobs so that someone that knows what thier doing and had compassion can take over and lead the company and treat the employees the right way!

    Nurses Wear Many Caps

    Pros

    One of the best things about working for Fresenius Medical Care is that it's been around for a long time and is a leader in
    providing excellent hemodialysis services. They have a very comprehensive training program for inexperienced dialysis
    techs and nurses and a stream-lined one for experienced caregivers.
    My clinic has a very positive and friendly working environment. It definitely feels as though I am part of a team that is working for the greater good and not just a paycheck.

    Cons

    Long hours, especially for Charge Nurse. The days start very early, but that's out-patient dialysis anywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work load needs to be more evenly distributed as the nurses are responsible for too many historically non-nursing duties.
