    Pros

    You get plenty of hours with this company the benifits are great and My clinical manager goes up and beyond for her staff the nurses are amazing and very helpful 90 percent of the time the atmosphere is fun and we joke and tease each other fun heartedly and maintain professionality most of the patients are so greatful as well

    Cons

    Some Co workers and be selfish and only look out for themselves especially when it comes to going home with the first in first out and who works the next day issues if you work there then you know what I'm talking about but I guess that is a Co worker issue

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having the schedule done in a timely. Manner and not a couple of days before would be greatly appreciated and clear up a lot of scheduling. Conflicts that could be avoided rotating who closes more would be nice as well

    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

    benefits, flexible hours aid dietitian in meeting with patients who dialyse early AM and late PM.

    Cons

    too many corporate projects assigned that are mgt. duties

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep projects within management instead of delegating to dietitians; projects always involve numbers and statistics and not nutrition.

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

    Pros

    Work-life balance is certainly the biggest positive. I don't believe I have received an email from a co-worker after 6PM, and never on weekends. In today's working life, that's hard to find. I also went to a 3 day training session which discussed many of the aspects of the job, though not all.

    Cons

    There are many negatives. First, there is no clear way to move up in the company. I do not believe they want to promote from within. I also do not believe in the vision or that it applies to daily working life. It seems like the stock price is the determining factor, though very few positions get bonuses (i.e. maybe corporate positions do, not sure). There are no promotions or possibilities of promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a fair, open and honest compensation model. Have clearly defined path the employees can take to get to the next position. Provide the necessary tools for people to complete the tasks they are asked to complete. Provide better incentives to work harder or longer.

    Pros

    Decent training and flexible schedules

    Cons

    Pretty disorganized overall. Waste lot of money on some things and then sedn people home early to save money and the rest of the staff is overworked, etc.
    Salaries lower than other dialysis companies in the area.
    Management incompetence/ignorance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about the PATIENTS. Take care of the staff better and this will be better for the patients.

    Pros

    great job to get experience, good benefits

    Cons

    hard job to get patients in clinic, weighed, vitals taken, report any changes to RN, cannulated, and get patients on dialysis machines safetly, within 15 minutes. Each PCT gets 3 patients per round to get on a dialysis machine and each patient only has a 15 min window from their appointment time to the next patients appointment time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a better way to schedule patients
