Weekends off (depending on your staff), flexibility when it comes to having to leave early or come in late, 3 weeks PTO after one year, pay equal to CSL but less than Octapharma.
During the busy season, you are expected to work (not supervise, but work!) directly in production for 8 hours most of the time without a lunch and then come back to the office for 2-3 hours of office work. Company wide quality is very strict when it comes to deviations so expect to open 5-8 deviation records a day (for minor errors). The quality unit will be hounding you daily more than your direct supervisor and they put most of their monkeys on to your back. If quality has a call in, they will just take a person from operations and you have to improvise but if the shoe is on the other foot quality will refuse to help you out doing non cGmp tasks.
Advice to Management
VET YOUR POTENTIAL CENTER MANAGERS! They set the tone for the entire center. Just because they served 9 years as an Assistant Manager does not mean the "deserve" a center. Some AMs are just not meant to be CMs and putting a poor leader in that position can be detrimental to a center!! This is why on the job posting board you will see all the leadership positions posted (CM, AM, CQM, OS etc.) at a particular center. They put bad leaders in charge, then a year later CLEAN HOUSE. This is a sign of poor corporate management.

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Biomat USA.
Felt like a joke interview, and waste of time. Interviewers looked like they didn't want to be there and looked distracted. When asked about salary they low balled the average of that position.
