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

    Pros

    Fresenius Medical Care offers a great benefits package, college reimbursement and great PTO. This company is a really great company to work for I fell in love being a dialysis Techinician there's alot of opportunities out there to make great company and still manage a real decent work/life balance. You absolutely need to experience to be a Dialysis Techinician but however; The passion and the drive is what you need to work at a company like this. You will get attached to the patients at your clinic or at other clinics but what I know you can't get too attached to the patients because alot of the great ones end up passing away and this is the hardest part about the job honestly.

    Cons

    I love working long hours, MWF I go in at 5a and work until 10p but this was by choice. If you don't like long hours then accept a part time position.
