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

Pros

flexible work hours, lots of training opportunity

Cons

complex and disorganized organization,
incompetent, arrogant upper management
general frustrated atmosphere if you care about quality work, low employee morale
back-stabbing and little regard for professional conduct.
managers show favoritism to particular employees, thus unqualified but was promoted few times over 1 year from hire
No recognition, no rewarding, no promote within
poor benefit, no bonuses for non-management, low increase in salary % for non-management

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees, treat them with more respect to their job, and more attention on employee morale.
Own up to the responsibility as the management, back up your team, they are the ones who work the wheels!

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

    Pros

    Layback environment. Plenty of parking.

    Cons

    No recognition, no rewarding. Generally, for the same position, Fresenius's salary is $10k lower than other companies in the same industry. Very little chance for advancement. If you get a promotion, your salary would only increase 2-3%, but your work and responsibility increase much more. Sound like what happened to George Costanza?

    Lots of nasty fights among the upper management. Even at the employee level, it is hard to ignore it and focus on the work.

    It is a unique industry. The skill you developed there may not be transferable to other jobs. The company does not care about "employee loyalty".

    Poor benefit. 6 holiday, no sick leave. At the flu season, you hear coughing here and there across the hallway. Horrible! Having over 80k employee worldwide, most of those in North America, Fresenius should have strong negotiation power for employee benefits. Its health insurance has the highest co-pay. Under that policy, the maximum out of pocket for delivery
    is $10K. No kidding.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all your staff but not just one! Open your eyes!
