    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 was a Patient Care Technician here and I absolutely loved it! They are the top notch dialysis companies in the United States.

    Cons

    There are no cons to working at Fresenius. The only reason I resigned was to go back to nursing school full-time.

    I worked at Fresenius Medical Care - North America full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits package. Enjoyed working in business/financial side of things while still being close with my patients. Learned a lot about the business of medical care,

    Cons

    Too many projects all the time, leaving too little time for actual patient care. Too much focus on spreadsheets and numbers instead of the actual people these printouts affect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure what needs to change. Would benefit the company to put more effort into small perks for the clinic level staff.

    Pros

    The work atmosphere is great. I really appreciate my coworkers because we work as a team. Fresenius promotes good customer service to all.

    Cons

    The patients sometimes are angry about not feeling so well. The challenge having the ability to press on in spite of someone else's bad attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The work atmosphere is great but a little encouragement from time to time won't hurt anyone.
