    Pros

    Enjoyed my job, left alone to perform my assignments and tests, not too micro managing. Good health insurance and Vacation time.

    Cons

    Pathetic annual raises, no promotions, out of touch with employees, company had no idea of what employees think or feel - but didn't really care either.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring upper management and listen to the people on the "floor".

    Pros

    Great benefits and location. The team I was a part was fairly cohesive. I found the company overall to be a good place to work.

    Cons

    Poor communication between team members and across other teams made it difficult to accomplish goals. There was a lot of training which is mandatory in FDA regulated industry but many employees did not take it seriously, which only hurts the company in the long run. HR was difficult to deal with and rarely advocated for the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house! Review the effectiveness of upper management and actually do something about those who are not effective.

    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.
