    High turnover, poorly managed, below average pay

    Current Employee - Supervisor in Grand Island, NY

    I have been working at Fresenius Kabi USA full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Learn a lot about generic pharmaceuticals, great resume builder.

    Cons

    High stress environment, resources inadequate for number of tasks, very high turnover rate, poorly implemented corrective actions, extremely reactionary, low level of competence, management seems to work far too many hours, employees terminated frequently, bureaucratic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on proper improvements, foster a culture of healthy change which will allow workers to come to a job where they have pride rather than one where their performance is strictly out of fear of losing their job. The turnover rate should give you a hint of the health of a company.

    Pros

    This is a Pharmaceutical company and we change life's on a daily basis, due to our commitment of excellence in making our pharmaceuticals,

    Cons

    The company has become so large that the employees are just a number, only concerns now are about the dollars, and employees are not valued

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Happy employees make happy accounts and happy satisfied accounts spread the word and want to return to your company when someone else may be cheaper.

    Former Employee - Regulatory Consultant in Lake Zurich, IL

    I worked at Fresenius Kabi USA as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Hours flexible

    Poor project management
    Clueless as to what is really going on and how to run the organization and needs to take accountability for own actions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously look at management and to why you can't keep quality workers/people in your department.

    I worked at Fresenius Kabi USA full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and health insurance. Personal growth can be had with the right manager.

    Cons

    Be prepared to wear multiple hats, which is surprising for the size of the company. Organizational structure changes constantly. My personal experience was that I was held back by my manager because of my software expertise (SAP MM) which my manager did not have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep an open mind when getting suggestions from lower level employees and be careful of mid level managers keeping highly motiviated and exceptional employees right where they are to make them look better.

    The drugs and devices they make r good. The Culture internally is stringent.

    Time off and work from home should be equal among all. Training should also be available.

    Pros

    Great work environment, corporate bylaws protect the employees. Fast changing environment and great school for becoming a professional in the industry.

    Cons

    Plant located very far from everything. HQ are in Germany, which make EOM a timing nightmare. People who came from previous owner of the plant (Baxter) still have their mind set in the 80's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to education than applying pressure on your employees. Stop cooking the numbers to achieve company goals, pay rise and bonus.
