    Pros

    I loved Fresenius at first. Great and friendly environment, great team I was working on, product line was great, the culture of the overall company and senior management I found wonderful.

    Cons

    Management in my area had bully mentality. I personally observed one employee being personally tussled by a manager. I went to human resources (as I was new to the company) and told to mind my own business. I am sorry, but no matter what the issue, the management should never put hands on employees (especially as the employee came nowhere near that type of behaviour and had a valid question to ask the manager. Having heard the argument, the manager was wrong and I showed HR the FDA Regulations showing where she was wrong.

    I soon have that manager on my back for "butting in". All I did was simply point out the pertinent answer. I did not do so out of disrespect but because as someone in quality and compliance that is my role.

    Advice to Management

    Your managers are not know it alls and should be willing to listen to employees.

    As should HR.

    Say goodbye to your family life, weekends and holidays if you are going to work in production.

    Pros

    I was paid fairly well considering what I had to deal with. There are plenty of other dissatisfied emloyees to vent with.

    Cons

    Unrealistic and un reachable expectations, 12 hour shifts, must work all holidays including Christmas. Employees are treated poorly. No appreciation towards employees whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Quit over looking quality for quantity and show your employees some respect and appreciation.

    Pros

    Low absentees and many people who have worked there 20+ years.

    Cons

    Little to no training, poor morale, poor batch record management.

    Advice to Management

    Get the training department to really train and fix the batch record management. Also, complying with the FDA is a good idea.
