    Pathetic pay as compare to job market
    No promotions & salary hikes or good bonus
    No remote work allowed. People asked to take a paid leave if late by 2 hours.
    No good projects in IT - only support work
    401k is vested after 5 years. 20% each year

    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.
