I have been working at Fresenius Medical Care - North America full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Finally, after an 18 month wait, working the nocturnal dialysis shift I was recruited to! Much better compensation than previous employer, DVA. Work experience and nursing education are acknowledged through tiers of compensation. Excellent technical/support staff. Realistic expectations concerning work and patient care responsibilities.

Cons

Some of the older clinics have antiquated infrastructure (plumbing, mechanical, water systems). Staffing is stretched to the minimums required by law. Expensive healthcare insurance; family health insurance coverage is unreasonably expensive (as in shock, horror, disbelief). Antiquated electronic/computer systems (circa 1998-2000?!?!); however, there is progress being made in this area. Some policies and procedures (use of certain medical supplies also) are very outdated.

Advice to Management

Replace and upgrade infrastructure in the aging clinics ASAP, seriously, before they literally fall apart, I'm not exaggerating. Continue the progress with the electronic/computer systems. Thouroughly examine policies and procedures to modernize and to recover some ground lost to your competitors.

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

    Pros

    Depending upon the area you are in, the work can be interesting and there is a variety. In some departments, the work is monotonous and lacks variety.

    Cons

    Lots of inbreeding, so the influx of new ideas is few and far between. Best to pay your dues and then leave.

    Advice to Management

    Organization is not very collaborative, lots of fighting and lots of staff overhead. Learn how to be lean and support the clinics.
