Great team of nurses. Loved the patients and joy of being able to help and educate.
BSRN (Former Employee) –  Marion, INNovember 16, 2018
Job kept you busy and your days went fast. Great group of nurses, Social workers and doctors to work with. We had a great Manager when hired for several years and then hemodialysis management and Home dialysis were separated. Current Hemodialysis manager is great and fair and works as part of the team. Home dialysis changed drastically and became like walking on egg shells and you hoped you were on the good side. Not good atmosphere with patients reporting and several staff with no results. Overall, great place to work!
Pros
Great team of Nurses, doctors, and Social workers. Good compensation packages and offers.
Cons
Management in Home Dislysis

A good team where everyone is happy to put in their 100%, but without too much in the way of attitude. Very cordial environment. Good place to work.

Provided excellent training, but the compensation is not enough to stay
Hemodialysis Nurse (Former Employee) –  Hazel Crest, ILNovember 14, 2018
I loved the staff and the patients, but the salary and benefits fall short. They do invest in training you to be competent in your role.
Hard to have a good work life balance, because of difficulty finding coverage.
Always being short staff is another challenge, it becomes tired. You eventually move on
Pros
Uniforms free and replaced quarterly
Cons
Salary and benefit package

It is what it is, don't expect too much from here.
Assembler and Assembler Tester/Technician (Former Employee) –  Concord, CA 94520November 14, 2018
You can start off good with your first few month of working here. If you seek career advancement while working in the production area, you MUST ask and always be pursuant of that desired advancement. Career advancement isn't immediate. My promotion was effective in the work place, but wasn't effective on paper. I wasted 6 months working as an Assembler Technician while being paid as an Assembler salary. When asked for a follow-up, management dismissed it.

Depending on your work station, your coworkers can either be cooperative or competitive. This can affect your work ethic. It is a production site, people need to be cooperative but some say otherwise.

Management is lacking. Most of the time, they are just there to make their pay and leave. If you have issues with a coworker or personal matters needed to be addressed, they'll hear you out but it is in your hands to make your decisions. They have this look of disagreement on the production employees.

If production schedule is behind or there is a huge work order needed to be done, expect lots of overtime. If you're a working student, busy at home, or can't afford to spend most of the time at work, this place will be your undoing.

Benefits are basic. You get health, dental, vision, 401k, life, etc.

They hire new people constantly, parking in this location is terrible. They have available valet parking for those who can't find a parking spot.
Pros
consistent hours, overtime opportunities, benefits, friendly(sometimes)
Cons
management, competitive, parking

Great work/life balance and benefits, slow work
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Ogden, UTNovember 14, 2018
Fresenius is a great place to get comfortable. Benefits are awesome, but compensation isn't the best, either on the line or in a professional setting. There's desire to improve and become more efficient, but no desire to change the status quo. The culture is not a project-team friendly culture, and change is very slow.
Pros
Healthcare, work/life balance
Cons
Culture scared of change

Not a good place
Initial Verifications (Former Employee) –  Tyler, TXNovember 13, 2018
Very cutthroat, I was new to the job and they gave me one of hardest states to do. It was like they wanted me to fail. And then they let me go saying I was rude in emails and made loads of errors. I was a new person new to field and got assigned to do stuff that someone who been there for a year should be doing.
Was never trained the right way, trained by someone who was there maybe 5 months.

Was thrown into a desk and assigned states to do. Never could get help as manager, and our team leads were never at their desk always in "meetings" or just gone.

Left a full time job for this and got let go a week before I went full time here.

Also never taught how to respond to emails, told not to be honest in emails after I sent them.
Place is a joke... regretted leaving my last job for this one.
Pros
Free coffee, cocoa, break room with food to buy
Cons
Micro managed, training is horrible

Hostile Environment
Patient Account Representative (Former Employee) –  Tyler, TXNovember 13, 2018
If you are not a "favorite" then the working environment is extremely stressful. The only thing that is important to management is your productivity and over 180 day aging. Company expects employees to meet a quota, but having access to the tools to accomplish this quota are not of high importance.
Pros
Pay and PTO accrual
Cons
Management, co-workers, expectations

User Security Administrator (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNNovember 11, 2018
I enjoyed working there & liked all employees. Every 2nd Wednesday of each month they had a "pizza day", which was nice. However, I would have liked the opportunity to have become a full time employee.
Pros
Great people, learned a lot
Cons
I was a contractor with no benefits.

Place to start a career in healthcare
Insurance Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNNovember 8, 2018
Good place to start a career but if you want to advance without a nursing degree, it's very difficult. I would like to advance within the company but, with a master degree without nursing backgrounds, I find it nearly impossible. Especially in Minnesota. It's a great company for renal patients and their families.
Pros
Tuition reimbursement, 401K match
Cons
Limited room for advancement

PCT (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCNovember 7, 2018
A wonderful place to work, specially if you like work in places that help people like the Red Cross and you will learn new things everyday. The most part I love was that you meet different people and learn to love them.
