    Current Employee - Technical Supervisor in Indianapolis, IN

    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

    I do it for the patients

    Cons

    Always short staff and there's no team work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need a better system put in place for the patients and staff and I do not think that 1st and 2nd shift should put on 3rd shift patients because we are not getting paid there salary

    I have been working at Fresenius Medical Care - North America as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of my co workers had many years of experience and were very knowledge about dialysis.

    Cons

    In my 3 years with the company my department was never fully staffed with adequate nurses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company does not care about you as a person, all they want is a RN in the building. I have worked for them almost 3 years. They don't do evaluations yearly nor do they give cost of living raises. In all my years of service I only received 1 raise of $0.50.

    Pros

    My learning experience was impeccable. It enhanced the skills I already had as a phlebotomist. My trainer was awesome.

    Cons

    Always short staffed, unprofessional management team, lack of assistance from upper management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When hiring mgmt staff please make sure they are qualified and not just a body. It makes a difference if they have a nice personality because they interact with the public and the last things patients need is person who makes them feel less than who they are. Saying "good morning" matters.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for learning new things, pulse on the industry, they promote learning and networking outside of Fresenius.

    Cons

    While the PTO seems great, you have to use it for sick, vacation and holidays. The benefits at my prior companies were far better. At my level, no bonus or stock options.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fresenius needs more competitive salaries, bonuses, and stock options.
