    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

  2. Good Company

    Pros

    Most of my co workers had many years of experience and were very knowledge about dialysis.

    Cons

    In my 3 years with the company my department was never fully staffed with adequate nurses.

    Advice to Management

    This company does not care about you as a person, all they want is a RN in the building. I have worked for them almost 3 years. They don't do evaluations yearly nor do they give cost of living raises. In all my years of service I only received 1 raise of $0.50.

    Pros

    My learning experience was impeccable. It enhanced the skills I already had as a phlebotomist. My trainer was awesome.

    Cons

    Always short staffed, unprofessional management team, lack of assistance from upper management

    Advice to Management

    When hiring mgmt staff please make sure they are qualified and not just a body. It makes a difference if they have a nice personality because they interact with the public and the last things patients need is person who makes them feel less than who they are. Saying "good morning" matters.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for learning new things, pulse on the industry, they promote learning and networking outside of Fresenius.

    Cons

    While the PTO seems great, you have to use it for sick, vacation and holidays. The benefits at my prior companies were far better. At my level, no bonus or stock options.

    Advice to Management

    Fresenius needs more competitive salaries, bonuses, and stock options.

    Pros

    Benefits, nice patients (most of them at least), learning more about kidney disease, and some great co-workers

    Cons

    Backstabbing colleagues, favoritism by management, cliques

    Advice to Management

    Employees don't want to work their tails off to have their accomplishments minimized. This is how you burn out employees and that's why turnover is so high.
