    I worked at Fresenius Medical Care - North America full-time

    Pros

    The contractors and most of the full time staff were great. I developed many lasting relationships with colleagues who became great sounding boards for similar experiences with management.

    Cons

    Bosses are untrained, uncaring and not held accountable for their actions or interactions with employees. Many were promoted above their competencies to perform. Demonstrated by presenting wrong information and questionable interpretations.

    Advice to Management

    Miserable employees are a sure sign of bad management, employees know when they are not respected. My advice, forget the girls club and support your people.

    I worked at Fresenius Medical Care - North America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay and paid time off

    Cons

    Horrible work life balance, I worked in manufacturing and was stuck on graveyard shift for the entire length of my employment, it was based on tenure so coming in a couple months after an employee with the same job title meant that until they quit you were stuck. Management played favorites, gave special training and promotions to the "yes" men and cronies. Allowed the chosen employees to flex schedule etc. Recognition was reserved for the employees that spent more time socializing with management. Selective enforcement of policies. HR department had 2 separate sets of policies, one local, the other corporate that they could pick and choose from depending on what best suited them. Major form of communication is poorly written emails from management and training staff. Due to the scheduling format and poor communication, many times employees would hear about major projects hours before they were supposed to initiate them. Night shift leaders rarely see management unless they come in hours early or stay hours late uncompensated. Management and HR has easy flexible "banker" hours and are mostly unavailable, bad practice for a 24/7 facility. The blind leading the blind. Miscommunication and finger pointing followed by CYOA is the norm. Quality Systems are a farce.

    Advice to Management

    Work life balance is horrible. Being stuck on night or swing shift is bad news while trying to raise a family. Rotating shifts should be considered. Hire people to accommodate and train employees who don't share the same hours as Management. Management should accept responsibility for their inadequacies and not blame lower level employees for problems.
