    Pros

    Benefits and 401 k. A good way top learn Phlebotomy.

    Cons

    The center is run like a dictatership. They give certain people dollar per hour promotions while giving others 50 cents. Manager sits in office watching TV and reading newspaper all day and when her has to get up and do something, he's belligerent, angry and bellitles people. All you hear all day is how close to getting fired you are and how good you have it there. Their bonuses ate based on favoritism and all week you receive "qq" messages that say what you do wrong and it's shared everywhere among the centers. They constantly run employees off and complain that no knows what they're doing. They waste money retraining all three time, never have funds to fix and supply things, but they'll give their friends within three center 500 dollar raises. I can go on.
    Basically, if you want something temporary, it's good but stay there long enough YOU WILL BE MISERABLE.

    Advice to Management

    This isn't a Dictatorship. This is America where employees have rights. Btw, if you're going to expose workers to incurable diseases, pay them more. if you live to walk on people and throw your weight around, it doesn't make for good employees. All it does is anger people. Look at your turnaround. You have a very bad reputation as it is.

    Pros

    Health benefits are very good

    Cons

    Promotions are solely based on the relationship that you have, who you have lunch with, dinner or drinks with. The harder you work, the less likely you are to be promoted.
    If you accept a job here, spend your days networking and you will be very successful within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Promote employees based on their ability and not on friendships and your company will be successful. Recognize that the strength of your company is based on the skills of your employees.
    Recognize that you are a separate company from your German counterparts and make decisions which will lead to success of BPC and do not make decisions solely because Germany tells you to.

    Pros

    Health benefits package is not bad

    Cons

    favoritism is like no other in this place. If you work hard and commit yourself to improving this biotest this is not the place for you. This place promotes employees who gossip, parties with management, and for friends with management. There is a lot of cover ups and shaddy business in this company. Employee are not valued in any way. Two employees passed away in the same week and the company did not want to acknowledge their passing or existence.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the nepotism. Actually show that you value all your employees. Listen them. Appreciated employees builds a better company.

    Pros

    The coworkers are awesome and the company is in very good location

    Cons

    I don't know where to start about Biotest....starting from CEO all the management has to be replaced, there is no point in sharing your concerns with HR, there is no confidentiality of what you discussed with HR. All politics , there is no recognition you will be where you are after 10 years also, if you ask for a recognition or promotion you will get fired....

    Pros

    As a biomedical technician the job offers experience in your field, a reasonable work environment, and a chance to learn.

    Cons

    The pay is very low, advancement is slow, and the very worst part is that they company will give you an arbitrary work schedule at arbitrary times that change every single week. It is impossible to plan your life when one day you work 7am-2:30, the next day it's noon-8:30, then a day when you're only scheduled 5 1/2 hours followed by a 10 hour day. Your days off change every week. It is chaos and it makes the rest of your life chaotic.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to schedule people in a reasonable way. You are losing way too many good people because they can't live with the crazy schedules you give them. Also, if you are going to promise opportunities to cross-train and work in other areas when you hire people you need to follow through, or just don't say it. Saying it and not doing it creates ill will. Also, managers should not become part of the drama of the facility.

    Pros

    Salary and PTO. If you get the chance to use the PTO.

    Cons

    Work environment, preferential treatment, no team work or comradery. Owned by German company that does not seem to have an interest to grow in the US.

    Advice to Management

    Be equitable with all employees.
