I have been working at Fresenius Medical Care - North America full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Starting out with 5 weeks PTO is fantastic, as is non-gender based domestic partner benefits. The pay rate advancement and tuition reimbursement are great too.

Cons

This is a global, for profit company and is ran for the express purpose of making money. In other words, if you work at Fresenius, you're going to work hard. You are going to sweat, whether it is in management trying to meet goals and deadlines, or in non-management just trying to get to the end of your shift - working short staffed when someone is sick. You're going to earn that vacation time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember how it feels for the people on the front lines. They are the base of support for the company. Employees are not disposables.

    I worked at Fresenius Medical Care - North America full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for improvement but be prepared for politics, in-fighting, the FDA and a disjointed group of managers who should know better.

    Cons

    Major FDA problems. FDA problems. Legal problems...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to work as a team and remember the FDA can impact your careers, it seemed as though the FDA was a secondary issues and besting your colleagues was job one, a staggering attitude.
