    Pros

    employee discounts, decent schedules sometimes

    Cons

    Pay is all over the board. Supervisors and Managers with no training on power trips. No one knows what to do. Upper management will tell you to do something and if its wrong you get thrown under the bus. You can not trust upper managements, from your leads on to HR. High turn over rate because everyone is afraid for their job everyday.

    Pros

    Good health insurance. (Terrible 401k)

    Cons

    After Fresenius passed their FDA audit, management cut the quality staff by 25%. Tons of people with 15 years plus experience were walked out, no two weeks, no managers were notified that their employees were being let go.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that software is the only way to increase efficiency in a company in the 21st century. You still havent gotten it right, expand your software and IT department 10 people isnt enough.
