    Congenial coworkers, reasonable workload, good benefits

    Performance judged by how well patients do on labs, not private office, having to do action plans

    Consider years worked and if eligible for rehire before termination. Consider work performance before termination and other reasons Albumins low.

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

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement. Good pay. Great schedules. Lots of opportunities to grow. Moving options. And friendly people.

    Cons

    The only downside that I have to make clear is it is taking on some changes. New systems, new states to take on, more departments and more People needed. The only reason this should truly be a con though, is if you yourself can not work hard and at a fast pace. But if you give it your all, not just a team but a growing family to a great business, it could be very rewarding!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and continue to grow as a family. It's all new! People are gonna critique every detail but we can not give up. Things are changing and
    though it's rough to start change is always good. God gives a reason for everything that changes... Maybe this is all for the best in the end and we'll be bigger than we already are. The future starts with us! Motivation, positivity, hardwork, an learning together is going to be the best technique we could use!

    Pros

    Rewarding field to work in. Manufacturing devices to save lives.

    Cons

    Poor pay and even worse company structure. No support at all from management as they bully employees into mandatory overtime. The focus is on quantity over quality by any means necessary. The results are poor quality devices that fail patients at an astounding rate (15-20%). Terrible work culture from top to bottom. Pathetic annual raises that don’t reflect the additional work taken on over the course of a year. No incentive to over perform as promotions are based on available headcount rather than merit. Fresenius is a revolving door of staffing/management with an unsafe, unorganized workforce reliant on unqualified temporary employees.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down and focus on quality. Narrow the scope of leadership and revise the pay structure for experienced employees. Look into talent retention strategies and emphasize individual growth.

    I worked at Fresenius Medical Care full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are good. FMC participated in a college tuition reimbursement program that allowed employees to receive a percentage of their education expenses each semester.

    Cons

    Low pay for the duties I was given. I worked at a smaller unit where I often performed duties for the social worker and dietitian because they were rarely at our facility.
