    Pros

    loose schedule, good vacation, 401k match. Employees are able to somewhat make their own schedule according to what needs to be done.

    Cons

    training, communication, pay, lack of time to perform all of the duties required. Very poor training on new roll outs.

    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.

  3. Once a great enjoyable place to work. Changes have resulted in extreme under-staffing and overworking staff.

    Pros

    Almost impossible to get fired and job security. Lack of leadership in some not all centers. Job satisfaction depends largely on who the clinic manger and charge nurse are.

    Cons

    Patient assignment and work load. More requirements with no additional help or time to complete.

    Advice to Management

    Increase direct communication with staff (Not just notes and signs), monthly staff meetings. Bring back the fun stuff like compliance day, real staff Christmas Party etc.

    Pros

    Good insurance and benefits

    Cons

    You have to stay with the company for a year before the 401 k is matched. Poor raises. Keep adding responsibilities. Lpn are treated like technicians.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to work the floor when staff is short. Treat everyone equal regardless of race.

    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.

    Pros

    Work to improve patients lives

    Cons

    Corporate Quality and Regulatory are “top heavy” Management at ALL levels is more interested in “self” advancement than team building/development. Accountability is practically nonexistent for managers. Hence there are too many unqualified managers around. There are a large number of associates and contract staff with little to do and yet Quality and Regulatory keep adding more.

    Advice to Management

    HR should look at the staff turnover rate
