    Pros

    Extensive training and good benefits.

    Cons

    Reporting structure is confusing and can cause difficulty.

    Advice to Management

    Allow Social Workers and Dieticians to directly report to someone in their field rather than a Nurse whom does not understand restrictions on their specific scope of practice, or provide training for Clinic Managers on specific scope of practice and whom should be responsible for what.

    Pros

    Very friendly environment and great manager.

    Cons

    So far is all great

    Advice to Management

    For the short time being at Fresenius, I think management is very by the book but also personal. There is incentive to work better, and the managers are good leader.
