Innovative and challenging.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good position for someone with no work experience as it includes a lot of things to be approved by management, waiting for full approval is the most irritating part of the job. overall a good company but not much room for growth in the digital space.

It would be a fun place to work at if the was appreciation of the staff and support from management

No honesy and a lot of backstabbing amongst the employees.There are employees who feel that they are more entitled than others. Employees are not fairly promoted, its a survival of the fittest kind of environment.Employees had to use other employees’s heads to climb the ladder.Non qualified candidates are occupying top positions because of their race,those candidates end up running the company (Fresenius) as if its their backyard spaza shops.

Pros

14th cheque

Cons

Long hours, no appreciation

team work

they have the best dialysis machines, material resources always available. I would recommend someone to work there,except they don't have benefits. I enjoyed working there as I learned how to manage and also I grew my renal skills through pushing myself and being dedicated. The trainings I attended gave me the necessary skills to take with me anywhere I go.

Pros

Training for new satff, refresher courses

Cons

long hours

Fresenius Medical Care is a great company. The only problem at Fresenius Medical Care is Leadership/Management style used by most senior managers

good work ethics

i enjoy working at the company but my salary is not meeting my life expenses. The company could assist its employees with medical aid subsidy to make their life a little stress free

Early morning shift or late night shift. Learning opportunities are endless because of the nature of the work. Management of renal treatment is vital.

Workplace culture can be toxic at times due to high levels of sexism, racism and territorialism of female nurses towards their male colleagues in workplace environment. Otherwise good, most of time.

Pros

Excellent learning opportunities.

Cons

Long hours work. Shift work.

No team work and poor management.

Unit manage not fair to other staff as she has her favoritism that can do things and she will let it go and get angry if its others, she even says to us if we wanna leave we can leave she does care. reason its because her favorite staff doesn't work hence us we always on the floor while her sitting down with them. We are not allowed to get sick and there is no medical aid for staff.

Pros

Nothing its free

Cons

We work long hours +- 17hours

The management team makes it hard for emplees to love their job. They don't appreciate their employees.certain subordinates use intimidation

If only the management could stop treating employees like they are trash, like they did them a favour and stop intimidating. Students are exploited and their futures are threatened when they try to oppose. For students this company is a trap

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours and safety

stable company to work for

My work included 24/7 to place acute persons in the private hospital to do acute dialysis. Sort out staff problems. Sort out all paperwork that had to do with all acute dialysis issues. Ample opertunity to improve yourself Work place culture very stress full but enjoyable. Hardest part of the job was to wake up in the middle of the night to go and work when you could not get any of your staff members on the phone to go and work.

Pros

14 cheque

Cons

long hours

Negative environment

Productive

I work in a 15 bedded unit, shifts start at 5h00 in the morning, after connection of patients we do delegation and carry out our responsibilities for the day, we have special responsibilities like anaemia nurse, hygiene nurse and so on, I have learned a lot, simply because of the nature of work and patients that we have, I have developed good interpersonal skills, and communication skills, I enjoy the challenges I cone across because they make me understand more and enhance my management of patient

Pros

Recognition

Cons

Long hours

it was very intestring experience nd i learnt a lot

at work is was quite enjoyable because there was no superior and inferior at work we were treated equally by our manager up to the stuff. it was to hard to be in the middle between the permanent employees and the management when there is a certain conflict between them. i learned that u must not take sides at work in order to survive you must learn to work with anyone in order to survive long enough. working hard its the part i liked the most because i told myself that nothing come easy

Pros

tea time

Cons

long hours

A typical work day starts at six in the morning and finishes at around 8 p.m.Interesting place to work,not every day is the same but being in a position to make a difference in a patients life is fulfilling

Pros

good salary, benefits, international company

Cons

long hours
Was this review helpful?

it can be better

day starts at 8, very busy till i leave. i work well with the people in my team and enjoy when everyone is included in talks etc. my co-workers are young and vibrant. will rather not get into the topic of management. the hardest part of my job is dealing with a supervisor that doesnt understand me or have much supervisoral skills/people skills.
