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

Pros

Great job if you enjoy meaningful patient interaction and making a difference in their lives.

Great clinical staff. Most are committed to patient care and are willing to work long hours and on days off - usually in the form of overtime.

Like most healthcare companies, Fresenius runs lean. Clinical managers can expect to work long hours and on days off, usually with limited support. Managers must be comfortable wearing many hats and understand the importance of meeting clinical, quality, training, productivity and financial goals. Some managers can become overwhelmed.

Cons

Expect to work hard as a manager, if you can't make the commitment, you simply won't last. Staffing and scheduling can be an ongoing stress point.

Advice to Management

Improve turnover, reduce manager workload, improve and streamline systems.

    I worked at Fresenius Medical Care - North America full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    PTO was generous, location was good for me, was there for almost 9 years and they
    started out good, I think benefits were OK .

    Cons

    Manager failed to acknowledge PTO requests, even for Medical Appts. and treated me like I did not exist. Unprofessional work environment, company should have drug tested on a regular basis to weed out the problem people.

    Advice to Management

    More thorough background checks on Managers, make sure they have the experience when you hire them they say they do.
