    Pros

    Able to work independently, no micro-managing, however this was dependent upon the region you were assigned. Bonus plan. Great training opportunities. Could be a fun environment depending on team.

    Cons

    Salaries not competitive in some areas. Focus often heavily on bottom line compared to patient care. Regional management and above oftentimes forgot about the impact to the field when decisions were made with regards to staffing.

    Advice to Management

    Listen, follow through, diversity, be fair and consistent, acknowledge good performers, when increasing work load look at increasing staffing, evaluate salaries to ensure they are competitive.

    Pros

    Patients are fabulous to work with 99% of the time! Enjoy supporting patients and educating them on ESRD

    Cons

    Poor resources the company holds direct care staff accountable for thing out of their control. While managers are prasied for ill treatment for staff they don't see

    Advice to Management

    Watch your clinic managers a little closer don't believe all they tell you without proof. I have seen this happen over a a over. Staff will not tell you what is going on because they have to work with the manager after you leave the clinic

    Pros

    Large company with many benefits
    On the job training
    Challenging and rewarding job
    Forming personal relationships with patients

    Cons

    Hours
    Inconsistent Schedule
    Very demanding job mentally and physically
    Work/life balance
    Everyone has many jobs within in their job that all need to be done at once

    Overall, people seem to love this job or hate it. I saw that most people had either been with the company for many years or were gone in less than 1 year. There is a lot of emphasis on this job being a career and everyone staying there for years. With the low pay, early hours, and high demands, I personally could not dedicate myself to this job. It was a great learning experience, however, and like I said, some people really love it.

    Advice to Management

    PCTS are doing work that done wrong could easily put someone's life in danger and often doing it at 5 in the morning. More pay and more incentives to these employees would help.

    Pros

    Their located all over the US, which is great if you ever want to relocate.

    Cons

    Management is very juvenile. It's like junior high school very clickish. She only look after her inner circle.

    Advice to Management

    A team is built up of all types of individuals who come from all kinds of background. Who come together for a common ground to give great healthcare and service. Keep it professional and not be so concerned what people do on their personal time unless it affects his or her job. Stop being petty.

    Pros

    I do it for the patients

    Cons

    Always short staff and there's no team work

    Advice to Management

    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
