    Pros

    Great pay and benefits at entry level. Nice tuition reimbursement program.

    FMLA program needs to be better defined. Too many employees abuse the program causing shortages in staff.

    Pros

    Had a great mentor, the staff (the most of the time) was a good staff and didnt need much direction to do their job properly and efficiently

    Cons

    Upper management could have used some work in talking and relating to employees, some employees were allowed a little to much leniency that shouldnt have been tolerated

  6. Rewarding

    Pros

    I've worked with some great people.
    Very high standards of quality.
    Producing high quality plasma for thousands of people in need of life saving medicines.

    Cons

    Biolife continues to open up it's hours of operation in order to collect more plasma, expecting its employees to work even more inconsistent schedules.
    The pay doesn't reflect the job expectations, which is exactly why so many great people leave.

  8. 6 years of experience in a regulated environment...That's all I took away

    Pros

    I spent years working 40,50,60 and even the occasional 70 hour work week. The only form of gratitude I received was the overtime on the pay check. And OT is each required by or banned entirely, depending on the year.
    Now, what I did walk away with is a strong understanding of regulatory compliance.

    Cons

    -Completely inconsistent between the 12 regions
    -Typical HR responses when an employee files complaints, so not all bad but they are there to defend the company
    -Local management on all levels does not last for very long. But some of management is very good.
    -Hours vary by facility, but I have experience more obnoxiously horrible then pleasant.

    Pros

    They have a decent benefit package for their employees. Not much else going on.

    Cons

    They overwork you, their understaffed and don't care about their employee's well-being. They told me straight out I couldn't get moved up in the center because I was a male. Apparently they felt they could only move women up because they needed males for the heavy lifting jobs. The management there is terrible as they disregard any doctor's orders for weight and time restrictions. They don't care and will force you to do whatever they say and then write you up whenever you make any little mistake. They show now respect for their employees and everyone says they can't wait to leave as soon as they come into work.

    They will also sell the job to you in your interview and then put you in a completely different position with lower pay once given the job.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people for management with an education and some experience on running a workplace. Have respect for your employees and don't treat them like trash.
