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

    Pros

    I was proud to be a part of a company that works to improve the lives of patients every treatment. I worked for them almost 20 years and was promoted a handful of times during that period. The employee benefits are amazing, especially the paid time off!

    Cons

    As with any healthcare position, there is a lot of stress in dialysis services. When there is employee turnover, there is increased burden on everyone else in the department and frequently, staff became burned out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe that when upper management considers adding to task lists, that it should be also considered that something either be removed or future plans to add staff to accommodate the changes.

    Pros

    Open environment where you can grow and learn a variety of skills/duties.

    Cons

    I guess the 1 con was that my Contract ended and was one of the last contractors to come aboard, so I could not be transitioned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was excellent. They encouraged employees to grow and did not over manage.

    Pros

    The relationships you form with patients and staff enrich their lives and yours.

    Cons

    Constant "New Initiatives" without dropping any old duties. Everything that comes down from the top is "mandatory" right this second, and it creates incredible stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The people you promote to the top have no management skills and are honestly no help at all. The great people end up "stepping down" which is a horrible loss to you and the employees.
