I have been with a small FMC clinic since starting with dialysis 6 years ago. LOVE the patients, LOVE my coworkers and LOVE what I do... but the company TOTALLY sux !!!
As stated above, the employee is their LAST consideration, if at ALL. VERY poor pay, even worse benefits, and ALWAYS looking for ways to save a penny, even at the patients' expense. For such a HUGE corporation, it is inexcusable.
Last year they took our retirement and switched to "profit sharing".. mind you, this is to replace our current retirement... I received a full "$24.00 for the quarter !!! I can see myself in the Carribean now, can't you? :chuckle
Forget bonuses, not even a little turkey for Christmas, a $50.00 W-Mart gift certificate is the most we have ever received from them at the end of the year.
They also tried to get rid of our LPNs who have been there over 10 years, totally dedicated and dependable...and tried to "force" them to go back to school or be laid off.. OR put their licence in their pocket and work as Techs only. The company finally backed down after a massive revolt nationwide, and the input of the docs, who were disgusted by this suggestion.
If you can ignore the corporate BS and enjoy your patients and the work itself, it's ok... that's the ONLY satisfaction we get.
Would not be surprised to see this company go bankrupt in the near future.
