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

    Pros

    Autonomy, base pay plus acute shift diff (15%), night shift diff (30%), mileage to hospitals (.51/mile), free uniforms, lots of hours avail if wanted

    Cons

    18 hour days mandated, worked 24 hour days frequently plus on call and every other weekend, often by yourself after just 10 weeks of class even though policy says 6 months with another RN at all times, forced to do PD and CRRT with zero training (they want to talk you through the process over the phone with pt family in the room - very unprofessional and dangerous!) Several sentinel events in the short time I was there. Very unsafe for staff and patients alike.

    Advice to Management

    Train staff better, have charge nurses that are willing to help and aren't online shopping all day, listen to staff complaints and get rid of those that are not following policy and practicing in a dangerous manner instead of promoting them

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

    Pros

    Hard working pt care staff. Good quality control. Documentation gets done. Staff is pretty good for most part.

    Cons

    Few professional managers. Little thought to competency in hiring but rather just hire for a body.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your staff and be truthful. No need to deceive workers. Some managers, their first response to suggestions is negative because they are too afraid to "rock the boat" for fear of losing their livelihood.
