I have been working at Fresenius Medical Care - North America full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Great job satisfaction, benefits, vacation and sick leave. Opportunities for advancement if willing to move. FMCNA is largest dialysis provider in US, so there is job security. Availability of bonuses.

Cons

Lack of support from upper management, minimal training for managers available initially, bonus structure not based on acute clinic accomplishment - based on district as a whole.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to build relationships with pts in a role that really impacts their health outcomes. It is generally satisfying to play a key role in a small interdisciplinary team that directs the pt's care.

    Cons

    Please see the statement below: I believe there is a very real challenge at hand between managing excellent pt. care and juggling corporate business expectations. Sadly, I believe it is the pts. who see the poor result from unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The business initiatives are smart, and what is going to make this company competetive into the future. However, you are accomplishing these "projects" through your direct pt. care staff via a deluge of updates/corrections/and revisions of policy upon policy. [How could one keep up? which is clearly the expectation] I believe this challenge of providing "ultracare" is not met with adequate support, therefore in the end, it is the pts. who suffer the result as the direct care team attempts to juggle good pt. care with "business care."

    Pros

    Flexible. Nice doctors. With the right management the unit run well but that is true for any business. Care about the patients and the staff.

    Cons

    Management makes all the difference. Cost of benefit O.K. they sold the company to Fresenius. Wish they would have stayed in the business. The new guide lines set up by the government made it to difficult for the little guy to stay afloat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it about the patients 4:1 ratio max, nurse should never have Pts.
