Management horrible
LPN (Current Employee) –  Honolulu, HIMarch 31, 2016
Job security for sure. Unionized so Pay and benefits are good compared to other Lpn jobs in Hawaii. Love what i do for the patients but Management is terrible. Shift work no grave shift, rotate weekends, close major holidays Thanksgiving, xmas, and new years my main reason I'm still withthis company. Clinics closed on Sundays unless there's educational or meetings maybe few times a year. Only the Liliha clinics have parking, other sites you own your own. Has 401k paid time off sick leave educational reimbursement medical dental health flexible spending.
Pros
pay, benefits, major holidays off, job security
Cons

Poor Management
Hemodialysis Nurse (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 28, 2016
I have worked for the company for almost 18 months and when there's a turn over in staff of 40% (nursing) that alone speaks volumes. Management has no backbone and allows staff especially pct's to dictate the shift with no respect to the CN & TL as well as their co-workers. But if you complain you are labeled a "trouble maker " & they will find a way to drive you out; by either scheduling you to open, close or both on every shift you work. It's almost impossible to get a day off and if you call-in sick they make your life miserable. Unless you are a favorite of management. This company has the best benefits out of any employer I have ever worked for, but at some point you have to decide if it's really worth the trade of being in a miserable work environment.
Pros
Best benefits in healthcare.
Cons
Poor Management, No communication, Techs treating Nurses like they are nothing even though they aren't the ones with a license

horrible company
social worker (Former Employee) –  akron, ohioMarch 28, 2016
Want to know how good it was? It wasn't good at all. Pay is terrible, hours are horrible, lied to on a daily basis, treated like garbage, management is terrible, no one stands up for you. All the clients want things for free, then treat you like a speed bump as well. Raise, what raise? PTO? Yes, you can take it, IF they allow you. This place is all about lining their own pockets. For profit that doesn't give you incentive to work harder. Will take advantage of you at any moment.
Pros
generally work the hours you want
Cons

Certified Clinical Hemodialysis Technician (Current Employee) –  Augusta, GAFebruary 11, 2016
Poor management at my location. Could do better with hiring qualified employees in upper positions. Starting pay could be bette over all.

Typical work day is very busy on MWF days. We treat approximately 60 patients on these days.

I am constantly learning something new in dialysis.

Management is awful. No backbone and there hasn't been much positive change. It is not a pleasant clinic to work at.

Hardest part of my job is shift changes. The new scheduling system has not been implemented and it went into effect September of 2015.

The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to laugh and have fun with my patients despite their illness. We have a good time during treatment. My goal for them is to have a successful stress free treatment and not go home exhausted.

Great people to work with.
Dialysis Production Operator (Former Employee) –  Ogden, UTJanuary 15, 2016
Great people to work with; I absolutely LOVED my crew, work week is three and a half on - three and a half off (three 12 hour shifts, one 6 hour shift), advancement only happens by being one of the boss's friends, short breaks (mostly dependent on work location), crowded parking, pay is alright (on graveyard) but gets cut hard when using company benefits, have to have PTO for every holiday (basically Christmas and the August shutdown) and have to schedule time off at least a month in advance (also have to have PTO to cover it), overtime on D shift is almost impossible to get, and switching shifts requires being put on a waiting list that is pretty long.
Pros
Weekend to work week schedule, great people to work with, fast PTO and sick leave accural
Cons
Advancement is super hard, big boss hovers almost constantly, short breaks, no rotation on cart loading, overly obvious favoritism, no paid holidays or time off

FMC Biomed Hard work for decent pay.
Biomedical Technician (Former Employee) –  Ottumwa, IAJanuary 10, 2016
Your typical day as a Bio-medical tech will include a couple of monthly, quarterly, bi-annual, and or annual preventative maintenance checks. Maybe a dialysis machine repair or two, depending on the upkeep prior to your taking responsibility for it.

Learned how to repair and perform preventative maintenance on dialysis machines, Reverse osmosis machines, pre-water treatment ancillaries.

Most of your time is self managed with new challenges presented regularly.

Your co-workers will mostly consist of nursing staff, Social workers, and dietitians.

The hardest part of working for FMC is the constant changing hands of responsibilities and taking on more with same pay and less time.

The most enjoyable part of this job is the freedom to manage your own time and responsibilities
Pros
Decent pay, benefits, Freedom
Cons
Long hours, Large responsibility load, and overly superior superiors

Patient Account Representative (Former Employee) –  Ocala, FLJanuary 25, 2016
Very demanding fast paced dialysis billing group. Required diligent time management and attention to detail. Excellent co-worker relationships and attentive management. Very positive experience, unfortunately the corporate decision to consolidate nationwide billing to one location resulted in the regional closing of the billing group.
Pros
quarterly bonuses, insurance benefits and ample paid time off
Cons
stressful due to heavy workload

Good atmosphere, Lower compensation
Biomedical Engineering Technician (Current Employee) –  Myrtle Beach, SCJanuary 29, 2016
This would be a great company if the compensation was on par with the level of work you are required to perform. The work load is far from basic when it comes to being an engineering technician, along with your technical duties you are also required to to do compliance auditing of clinics and multiple duties that are not discussed during salary negotiations.
Pros
Great people

Okay I Guess
Transportation Supervisor (Former Employee) –  FreseniusOctober 12, 2015
Not bad but management is on the decline and doesn't have direction. At first seemed like a great place. Constant change without actual direction. Upper management pushed the work load to hourly employees without taking away work and all hourly employees basically work 50+ hours a week. The company loves spreadsheets and is living in the past with some methods and newer ideas are not thought through before implementation. Lower level management controls the budget but doesn't display the knowledge to do so. Like any company watch your back and pick allies carefully. Hourly employees run the company. It's not a bad place if you like 400+ emails and 100+ calls a day. Several upper management members have jumped ship and company is positioning it self for an overhaul.
Pros
Time off, Insurance, Salary
Cons
401K, Management, Hours

Medical Social Worker (Current Employee) –  Rio Rancho, NMNovember 17, 2015
Great opportunity to learn about Dialysis Medical Care from highly experienced interdisciplinary team members. Health benefits are limited due to high deductibles. One Social worker to a clinic of 90 patients with less than 32 hours authorized to work. Good time management and advocacy skills are necessary to manage to work load.
Pros
You are part of an interdisciplinary team.
Cons
Limited or no opportunities for advancements.

Dialysis Rn
Dialysis Nurse (Current Employee) –  Middletown, NYDecember 14, 2015
Every job has more training to endure as time passes by. so the only thing i would have to say is that there are like 20 managers involved in 1 clinic. very difficult to address your concerns. And on call pay is terrible so is the salary. Entire hospital rn make more than dialysis rn and the 1199 union is not effective. But its the people you work with that make you hang in there.
Pros
time for family, good colleagues
Cons
minimal breaks, double charting, supervisors work even though you barely have time for patient care and documentation

Alternate Solution Packaging Production Specialist (Former Employee) –  Ogden, UTJanuary 23, 2016
Decent place to work with good benefits. The shift I was on had a lot of good people on the crew. Advancement was possible but not for much more of a wage increase which I thought was counter productive as far as morale.

Inventory and Compliance Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Nicholasville, KY 40356February 15, 2016
Fresenius Medical Care is not a bad place to work. Good benefits. Nice pay. Inviting workplace. But after dedicated years to the company, they will get rid of you in a heartbeat. I would rather have a job that doesn't in tell me worrying if I will have a job tomorrow or not.

A fair work environment
Regional Technical Operations Manger (Former Employee) –  Garden City, NYSeptember 28, 2015
FMC has a culture of respect and professionalism. They pride themselves on being the largest provider of both dialysis products and Services in the Hemodialysis industry. Fresenius has always been fair in the treatment of their employees, and they offer opportunities to their workers. They have good health benefits program and a decent 401K program.
The people are friendly, and the environment is safe and conducive to a healthy work day, any given day. I've grown with FMS from the very beginning, and I'm proud to have worked for them during the many years.
Pros
Safe, Fun, and Healthy working environment
Cons
Can become hectic at times....so does any company for that matter.
