    I have been working at Fresenius Medical Care - North America full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Finally, after an 18 month wait, working the nocturnal dialysis shift I was recruited to! Much better compensation than previous employer, DVA. Work experience and nursing education are acknowledged through tiers of compensation. Excellent technical/support staff. Realistic expectations concerning work and patient care responsibilities.

    Cons

    Some of the older clinics have antiquated infrastructure (plumbing, mechanical, water systems). Staffing is stretched to the minimums required by law. Expensive healthcare insurance; family health insurance coverage is unreasonably expensive (as in shock, horror, disbelief). Antiquated electronic/computer systems (circa 1998-2000?!?!); however, there is progress being made in this area. Some policies and procedures (use of certain medical supplies also) are very outdated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace and upgrade infrastructure in the aging clinics ASAP, seriously, before they literally fall apart, I'm not exaggerating. Continue the progress with the electronic/computer systems. Thouroughly examine policies and procedures to modernize and to recover some ground lost to your competitors.

    I worked at Fresenius Medical Care - North America full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and pretty decent pay.

    Cons

    Management is rude to employees, especially those who are not of their ethnicity. Non-white problem employees are treated differently by management than their white counterparts. A white employee may receive counseling for an offense whereas a non-white employee would be fired. I was not fired, but have had management lie to me about job hours and get angry and disrespectful when asked about them. I had to resign my position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some diversity in management.
