Unfair shift priority and stressful work environment
Automation Senior Technician (Current Employee) –  San Germán Municipio, PRJanuary 14, 2018
Fresenius Kabi is not bad at all. With better management, fairly decisions and growing opportunities they will have more happy employees. Every day I have to make corrections was the last shift do not do. Sometimes I do not have spare parts to make corrections and this is stressful. Friendship also make a stressful work environment because friendship is first than the work efficiency. Dispensary close at 12 AM so night shift workers have not a nurse or medicine in case of any accident or situation. You are not suppose to leave the facilities to buy food outside in the paid break and night shift do not have cafeteria available, so if you do not brought lunch or forget it at house you will have to eat vending machine food or drinks only. In resume morning shift have better quality work environment than the evening shift and evening shift have better quality work environment than the night shift. Weekend shift also have the same problems as a night shift or maybe worst because they works 12 hours without dispensary and without cafeteria. The company provide vision, audition and medical examination for free once a year. They provide personal protection equipment too.
Pros
free parking, facilities security, they make free lunch and dinner for special occasions, free turkey and cheese with ham for thanksgiving and Christmas and perfect assistance compensation.
Cons
No cafeteria and dispensary available for all shift, not fair evaluation for salary upgrades, not fair shift compensation, not consideration for night shift workers when they make activities during the next day, have a stressful work environment

Poor pay and no room for advancement
QC MICROBIOLOGY TECHNICIAN II (Former Employee) –  Grand Island, NYJanuary 13, 2018
Fresenius is not the worst place on the planet to work. However they will pay you just above poverty wages and expect you to be happy with that. They will do everything they can to avoid giving you a promotion or raise unless you are best friends with your manager. If you get in good with management, they'll promote you through nepotism. Yearly "merit increases" in pay are a joke and barely cover inflation. Management plays favorites and promotes based on that instead of seniority. Benefits were good, and PTO was nice. Other than that, it's nothing special if you have even half a brain. You won't be challenged at this job.
Pros
Good vacation policy
Cons
Nepotism amongst managers, terrible pay, terrible raises

Pan Washer (Current Employee) –  Melrose, ILJanuary 7, 2018
I learned how to sterilize veils before we put in the oven and to be ready to put the medicine. You need to follow the policy like wear scrub before entering in your work place. The only hard thing is if your working over night for twelve hours of your schedule. We buy lunch if we have good production during our shift.
Pros
Once we have free pizza
Cons
Long hours

Very back breaking position
Chemical Compounder (Former Employee) –  Melrose Park, ILNovember 26, 2017
The chemical compounder role was misrepresented to me as more of a Q.C. position but it's mostly just back breaking manual labor with really long hours but good pay.

No advancement opportunities
Sr. SAP PI/PO Developer (Former Employee) –  Lake Zurich, ILOctober 12, 2017
The co-workers were all very nice and a pleasure to work with,. However, there was no advancement opportunities unless someone left or dies. Also, the compensation was not based on individual performance. It did not matter how well you performed during the year because you could only get x percent raise no matter what.

Island of misfit toys
Aseptic Operator (Current Employee) –  Wilson, NCOctober 12, 2017
The bulk of staff are rejects from other area pharmaceutical companies and it shows. The manufacturing associates are strong, which is why they see the least turnover, but support departments are anything but supportive of manufacturing. Most staffers are in a startup mentality and really have no urgency or comprehension of organizing a system of operation. The plus to that is you can not be held to a high standard because no one knows what the standard is suppose to be. Corporate keeps talking about growth and the addition of a new plant at the site but heaven help them if they depend on the same group that was responsible for botching the exististing plant operations.
Pros
Stave off poverty with a weekly direct deposit
Cons
Incompetent managment, clueless quality, pay is lowest in the area

The only complaint that I really have is the commute to the northern suburbs.

They keep you on as a contractor a little too long for my tastes
