Former Employee - Documentation Coordinator in Waltham, MA

I worked at Fresenius Medical Care - North America as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

Friendly place to work
Colleagues chipped in for training
Very nice cafeteria; plenty of free parking

Cons

Contractors are discarded with little regard for effect on employee
Relationship with recruiter Apex Systems is much too cozy; they are in effect, their HR department
Promises that extra skills would be valued and were a reason for hiring were offset by claim that I was overqualified, and thus not a good fit, after only 2 weeks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cease the reliance on Apex.
Treat contractors with the same respect as regular employees.

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

    Pros

    I really enjoy my patients and I have a great manager.

    Cons

    Too much revolves around the budget. Employees should be compensated better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My experience was great at FMC.. My manager was patient & understanding.. We're still friends & I can use her for references. I'm PRN now, but wouldn't mind going back to full time.
    My advice would be to focus more on compensation a little better. Hourly employees should get paid a little better.
