    Pros

    Fresenius takes good care of its employees and has some of the best medical insurance out there, hands down. The environment on the Dialyzer line is very clean and controlled. The people are great and there are many opportunities to progress in your employment.

    Cons

    Working at Fresenius involves many of the difficulties commonly associated with manufacturing labor: long hours, repetitive labor, and physically demanding work.

    Pros

    Travel Pay and mileage is good.

    Cons

    Long hours. Favoritism and lots of talk behind your back. People higher up in the company get away with anything even if it puts patients in danger.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees no matter what rank with as much respect as you do your nephrology doctor!

    Pros

    Loved the amount of Autonomy with the position. The salary was decent at the time.

    Cons

    Personally I hate company politics and that was so prevalent in the company that it made working unpleasant sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the personal political game. You're losing good people because of it.

    Pros

    You get to work with some good people. The patients are awesome.

    Cons

    Lack of communication and too much control is given to the managers.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is take away some of the control/ decision making from the managers, when it comes to the employees and their pay. That way the retention rate might not be so high, and you wont have to worry about staffing your clinics.
