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

    Pros

    Can have flexible days. Pay is decent but there is big disparity between the social worker salaries, some new social workers may make more than others who have been there 5+ years.

    Cons

    Very high turn over rate (probably over 60%+ for MSWs), high caseloads, no support from upper management, high stress, case management focused despite hiring managers stating that you provide counseling 8 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and compensate your social workers like you do other parts of the interdisciplinary team. CMS requires social workers to be in the clinic and provide services. Pay us like we are and not like a receptionists.

    Pros

    Good benefits, co-workers are good

    Cons

    Impatience with new employees. They eat their young, even when the 'young' are older nurses. Very difficult computer systems in chronic units making the work twice as hard, and it is already hard work. Toxic environment, punitive mentality.

    Advice to Management

    You need to really look at your harsh stance with employees, particularly newer ones. This company has had 'no help' crisis in the past, and are now having another. What is wrong with this picture?

    Pros

    Nothing at all. There is not one good thing to say. Fresenius is a global company that needs to be put out of business.

    Cons

    They will over work you and be ready to sell your soul. There is nothing good about the way they treat patients and their staff.

    Advice to Management

    This is not McDonalds. Treat your patients and your staff better

    Pros

    It is my calling to work with the population. Company is a great one and very good with education with staff

    Cons

    Too much dumped on this discipline making it challenging to get all the work done and easy to fall behind. Case loads are high

    Advice to Management

    Take away some of the "extra" and hire secretaries for the units which will alleviate alot of busy extra work on this discipline giving us time to do the job we were hired to do
