its ok. managment has their priorities somewhere else other than their employees.
Generalist-Help Desk Specialist (Current Employee), nashville tnJuly 9, 2015
Pros: birthday pizza and cake once a month
Cons: allows no room for growth within the company.
answering phones. with 20 second intervals.
co workers are amazing to work with. everyone gets along.
the thing i like most about the job is getting to talk to and help people. the worst part is that the procedures change so much it is hard to keep up with. on top of that there is severe micromanaging.

Hemodialysis Technician (Current Employee), Concord, CAJuly 7, 2015
No two days are the same. It is hard work, but the coworkers are great to be around. Management is pretty cool. The hardest part of the job is being lucky enough to have the testing go smoothly. The most enjoyable part of the job is the coworkers.

A typical day a work is not so typical in dialysis. Everyday has its challenges. As long as you have a great group of co-workers next to you the day will run smooth.

Realistic goals and expectations
Admissions Supervisor (Current Employee), Longwood, FLJuly 6, 2015
Pros: great benefits, great team, learned alot
Cons: salary, no lunch, unpaid overtime
The company itself has great benefits, and pay compensation. If you are salary you can expect to work a tremendous amount of overtime. I believe that my experience was not the best only because I worked in a finance center with growing responsibilities and no approval to hire the adequate staff to realistically complete the required tasks responsible. This was because they were closing down billing – more... and finance centers world wide. With this they then overwhelmed the ones who stayed open with the assigned responsibilities to the finance and billing offices that closed. All the sacrifice, hard work and dedication to get the job done does not matter. Eventually we were closed too. My review may have been more positive if I worked within reasonable expectations and sacrificed myself for a growing company which valued my work ethic. – less

management does not care about employees
Inpatient Patient Care Technician (Former Employee), Conover, NCJuly 3, 2015
management does not care about employees,
example: an employee was admitted to hospital due to an emergency and got in trouble with management because scheduled work was not completed by a deadline.

Enjoy working with the patients
Dialysis Technician (Current Employee), Louisville, KYJuly 2, 2015
Pros: will work around my personal schedule
Cons: early hours
I have worked for Fresenius for 7 years. I have enjoyed working for this company and the patients that i care for. I mostly enjoy the respect and care that I receive from the patients as I see them almost more than some family and become somewhat close with them. To know that I am helping these patients to stay alive is very rewarding.

Job Work Life Balance was stressful, as my supervisor expected me to be connected to my laptop nearly 24/7, answering her emails at 11pm, weekends too
Project Coordinator (Former Employee), Nashville, TNJune 29, 2015
Pros: Great folks on the deployment teams & in the office
Cons: Supervisor's unrealistic expectations
My co workers and deployment team were very friendly, professional and fabulous to work with! However, my supervisor had no life outside of this company, and expected everyone else to be working practically around the clock like she was.

Meaningful and life changing career
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee), Keauhou, HIJune 27, 2015
Pros: Offers paid training & always extra hours.
Cons: Unpaid meals, over worked workers, split days off, sometimes no days off, low moral, each man for himself mentality.
I worked at the Fresenius facility in Keauhou. Training consisted of sitting in a room listening to "education coordinators", powerpoints, and taking tests/quizzes. The facility was once a liberty dialysis. The education coordinators compared the policy and procedure of Liberty Dialysis to Fresenius, which made learning a bit difficult. On classroom days I always took initiative to make sure my co-worker – more... and I were connected with the education coordinators. A lot of the questions on the quizzes were on the powerpoints and not in the text book given to us. A lot of the times if you did find an answer in your text book, it did not coincide with the power points. To be in this field/facility you have to take initiative in educating yourself on every part of the job , if not you won't understand anything. Sometimes the education coordinators were wrong or didn't know an answer to a question so they would refer you to the Fresenius policy and procedure to look up yourself. I had no past experience in this field. My preceptor wasn't the best but she tried. She did a lot of things against Fresenius policy and procedure, so when I got caught doing what she was doing, I got into trouble. I was taught to cannulate patients on a fake arm for maybe an hour. I actually made it past all the quizzes and tests. IF YOU DON'T PASS THE FINAL EXAM ON YOUR 2ND TRY YOU WILL GET FIRED! After 2 months of class and on the floor training I had my own pod. I still hadn't met some of the patients nor did I cannulate some of them. This facility seems to be always pressed for time. Needless to say, my 2nd day on the floor I was left pretty much alone cannulating patients I never had before. With this job of course not everyone are happy rays of sunshine. Needless to say I left after my 2nd day on the floor. I kept telling my preceptors that I am not good with cannulation. They all said it comes with time, but try saying that to a patient with no patience that only like particular people to cannulate them. I understand perfectly... but hey sometimes no one else is around. I was told I would have patients that were easy to cannulate.... boy was that a lie. I also worked off the clock a lot. Oh, and a lot of the staff members dislikes the clinic manager, who pretty much sits behind her desk, inside her office with her door close, in a constant bad mood. – less
