    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Management should better compensate their employees. Non-confidential information should be shared with people who need it. Operations management should have a more balanced mix between people with business and clinical backgrounds.

    I worked at Fresenius Medical Care - North America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have met some very nice and hard working people working for this company. And the clinic setup is very good as far as making them all very similar.

    Cons

    This company does not treat employees very well. They expect a lot of work from each employee with very low pay. I have spoke to many people within the company and none of them were very happy about their job, the pay was low and the work was to plentiful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please look at your workforce and really see how much work is being done by so few. All for the sake of the share holders.

    Pros

    FMC is a good place to work because they don't fire employees very often unless you fire yourself. I have not seen any layoffs. They will try and find a place for you to work if your facility shuts down or you are hurt.

    Cons

    It seems as management does not recognize or care about the common worker. There is a lot of back biting and politicing in upper management. Everyone has too many jobs and not enough time to complete the work. It is very unorganized at the lower level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to evaluate my upper-management team to let them know how they are doing without the thought of backlash. Some areas of the company would run smoother if some managers were held accountable to their management capabilities.
