    I worked at Fresenius Medical Care - North America full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits package. Lots of job opportunities outside of management and lots of opportunities across the United States of America. This is a good entry level company to start with.

    Cons

    Poor management teams in place and no real oversight over their functionality. This scenario hurts everyone. Most clinic managers and directors are clueless with respect to their duties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Observe in person your management teams and the work culture that they create.

    Pros

    I can't think of any, to be truthful.

    Cons

    Fresenius is the McDonald's of dialysis. Training consists of numerous corporate made videos, including one expressing the evils of labor unions. Leadership is nonexistent, and there is a constant turnover of healthcare staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the people who come to this place for care more than the profit that they generate.

    Pros

    compensation is "ok", and they do give annual increases

    Cons

    They will not hire you in another city if you move. Don't even bother putting in for a transfer. When you move, you will get completely ignored even though you were a former employee in good standing with the company. The company would rather hire an anonymous idiot from outside the company rather than an internal hire that know what they are doing. Don't expect to get proper training at this company. Nobody there knows what they are doing and people just "guess" or make it up as they go along. There is no formal training program for the Social Workers and you will get passed around to many different people who largely do not know what they are doing. Also the company will expect you to do more work and not get any pay increases. Disloyal company, I would never for work them again. They do not treat employees with respect or dignity. The CEO has no clue what goes on in his clinics and better yet doesn't care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should consider that if they expect you to do additional work, they should compensate you.
    There is never room to be promoted, there is no upward growth.
