    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 Management

    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

    good benefits, earned time off is generous, pretty much make my own schedule, only work three days per week and every third weekend

    Cons

    employee turnover is high, possibly due to burnout because it's hard to schedule unexpected days off for emergencies because of no one to cover your shift

    Advice to Management

    we need more coverage and support while working. I need the secretary there to answer the phones because I cannot run the floor and answer the phone 1,000 times a day
