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

    Pros

    Friendly work environment, Clinical Managers are easy to work with, love the patient interaction. Mileage reimbursement is good. Personal Time Off (PTO) is nice and can usually be taken anytime.

    Cons

    Pay is not what it should be for the required education, licensure. MSW's are undervalued within the team. team staff should not have to answer phones, not enough office staff hired/working hours given. Not enough office space and computers to go around for all staff. MD's sometimes take over MSW and RD's office and computer. Clinic to MSW ratio is not good.

    Advice to Management

    MSW's are not paid enough for the patient/Clinic/MSW ratio. Hire enough office staff to answer phones so your team staff are not answering the phones. This takes away valuable patient time. Purchase enough computers and have a designated office in each clinic for visiting MD's so that they do not take over staff offices and computers. Provide Laptops for MSW's and RD's to rectify the computer issue. Sick time cannot ever be used and should be changed to make more employee friendly.

    Pros

    The Benefits are awesome, you can work around decent and good people.

    Cons

    No room for advancement, the pay is trash, my manager has no professionalism and lacks good basic communication skills. I had no prior training with machines until I went to a class 3 months after my start date. Be ready to hit the field running after the 1 week training class.

    Advice to Management

    Better training, better communication between upper management and Biomeds. Reevaluate the pay scale/ raises for technical.

    Pros

    Most of the managers I have worked for will work with your schedule as best as they can

    Cons

    It is a lot of work. If you don't want to or like to work hard everyday then it's probably not the job for you. You work as a team and as with all teams there are weak links so just hope that you are partnered with a strong worker so you don't have to pick up their slack. Ridiculously early hours, like clock in at 330/4a if you work day shift...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they are unhappy about patient schedules bc we are doing the work. Patient safety should be 1st and it takes time to take care of them

    Great training. Love the patients. Three days a week.

    Cons

    Pay not great. Not 40hrs a wk. No respect for nurses. Techs make as much money as nurse.

    Advice to Management

    Fire workers that do not pull their own weight. Other workers have to constantly pick up slack.
