      Pros

      Very professional, straight forward rules and regulations

      Cons

      Upper management is very sterile in terms of how the lower ranked employees are treated. No since of team work. Money is obviously the bottom line.

      Fresenius: Where you go to retire

      Aug 20, 2020 - Quality Specialist in Waltham, MA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The main products haven't been redesigned substantially since the 70's. The manufacturing division is very slow moving and conservative. As a result, not much is expected of/needed from the employee base. So you won't have to do a lot if you don't want to.

      Cons

      Not a dynamic work environment. Upper management wants to do just enough to collect their paychecks. Very much an old-boys club. It's easy to keep the lights on in an extremely vertically integrated company funded through government medicare reimbursements.

      I love the work I do.

      Apr 23, 2020 - Renal Dietitian in Chicago, IL
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The RD is important to the team which is wonderful. Nutrition is seen as important. The company has some nice benefits like tuition reimbursement. I have enjoyed the relationships I have established with my patients, doctors and other team members.

      Cons

      The upper management doesn't engage with their employees and show any care. Employees continually give feedback and leadership in the region dismiss the employees completely. I don't think that reflects the entire company.
