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.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, great benefits (PTO is awesome), nice people to work with,

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive compared to competitors, not a lot of room for growth/promotion unless you have an RN degree, Better training for non-clinical employees, communication is poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your key contributors/positions to the company's success and reward/ bonus them. Revisit pay scale. Be more transparent with future goals and direction of company.
