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

    Pros

    Good Training Program, Pretty good pay, Strong rapport with patients, work every other Saturday which may be a con but at least you can anticipate it.

    Cons

    Changeover can be extremely challenging when you have 4 patients coming off their machines and 4 to go on in a fairly short window of time, one small problem or heaven forbid a large one and you are behind for the rest different expectations at different clinics, just like anywhere there are lazy techs who don't find it necessary to do their job so you do your work as well as theirs.

    Advice to Management

    Get schedules out sooner than 2 days before a new schedule begins for work/life balance. Staff appropriately, during changeover there should be extra help.

    Pros

    People centric organization focused on developing and growth of staff. We provide quality care to those individuals thriving with ESRD. Leadership is connected and aligned to the vision of who we serve and the employees who deliver the services and support.

    Cons

    Lack of career advancement for our clinic staff, integration of systems, too many initiatives too quick in order for successful deployment and lack of execution and streamlined internal communication.

    Advice to Management

    Ask those in the clinics for feedback and ways to improve.
