    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

    Great pay and superb PTO policy.

    Cons

    Extremely poor leadership with no, I repeat, NO communication. Management would not return a voice mail, email or text.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to have input on what your field employees are doing then return their messages.
