    I worked at Fresenius Medical Care - North America full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This company had good salary. There were many and varied reference materials available to all staff. Good training.

    Cons

    They spoke about being patient driven with care when in reality they were only concerned with the bottom line. I felt married to my patients and had no time in which I wasnt supposed to be available to my patients, not even when on vacation.
