    Pros

    -Raises were OK, they have a bonus program too which is nice -I really liked my boss -Lots of potential to learn a lot very quickly

    Cons

    Overall, FK- Melrose Park has the potential to be a great place to work. It could've been worse however the environment at the plant is unnecessarily hectic. At the end of the day, it's the same old story; the low base pay and hectic schedule is what keeps the plant having "swinging doors". Turn over is very very high. They remind you that its a manufacturing environment with a lot of changing priorities, but coming from...

    Advice to Management

    Anticipate things that can go wrong further ahead of time. Stop the "put it off until tomorrow" mentality; that is why things are never caught up. Revise systems that aren't working. Think about the big picture and not just about what needs to get done today so you can go home. Your employees spend the majority of the day putting out fires; implement processes to ensure that fires wont happen again!

    I have been working at Fresenius Kabi USA full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    -Company growing at a fast pace -Lots of opportunities to acquire new skills, multiple internal job opportunities in other departments -Meaningful work (providing US market with low-cost generic injectables) -renewed focus on employee engagement -increasingly competitive compensation -good healthcare benefits

    Cons

    -poor work/life balance -pervasive "hurry up and wait" mentality with regard to project management -high level of turnover -lack of recognition of employees that excel -lack of promotion opportunities within job role -lack of cooperation from senior management with regard to employee engagement initiatives -no employee profit-sharing program -burdensome and discouraging annual review process

    Advice to Management

    -Focus on the engagement of your employees, make them feel valued if they are actively contributing, and provide them opportunities for promotions to prevent costly and disruptive turnover. -6 and 12 month employee performance review process is burdensome to supervisors and tends to treat excellent employees and "bare minimum" employees similarly, making otherwise good employees apathetic over the long term.

    I have been working at Fresenius Kabi USA full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The benefits are decent. They have employee outings but if you work in production forget about it! They’re mostly available for corporate employees only.

    Cons

    Pay- Compared to other Generic Pharmaceuticals, horrible! Perks- Forget about anything you hear. Many volunteering events are just for corporate employees. They treat everyone in production like slaves. Hours- We work 12 hour shifts and still get treated horribly. When you interview they lie about the hours. They make it seem like it’s not bad but once you start working and have to deal with the production managers...
