    I worked at CSL Behring full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is for salary people: Great people to be around. Training is great and everything is streamlined due to pressures from the FDA and the issues they had in the past- made them a great model for training and cGMP compliance. Start with 4 weeks PTO which is pretty amazing.

    Cons

    Salary side holds all the responsibility to ensure the work gets done, but the union does the work. I knew people with GEDs making 100k, while people with advanced degrees, great work ethic and a good attitude make 40k. The union protects all, even the people who need to be let go within the union. As salary- these are the positions from micro, production supervisor, quality, validation, etc- you get less pay, worse benefits (except better vacation), and more expected of you. If you get a promotion expect a 8-10% raise, even if you jump a lot. The levels built into the different jobs are better promotions and come automatic. This means negotiate the hell out of your salary upfront or you will be at a low salary for the remaining time there. I do believe over 10% requires senior VP HR approval-good luck!

    Advice to Management

    High level management needs to actively engage with the people at the ground level. The front line manager/middle level managers are top notch.

    Pros

    There is no pros to working here besides the fact that it's a job.

    Cons

    The management is terrible. There are serious understaffing issues and overworking issues. In the winter your checks may be late. There is a lot of favoritism shown by management.

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional. There is a way to handle things and a way not to. Be more courteous of how people work and stop telling them to work so fast or to be more polite especially if you're always in a bad mood.

    I have been working at CSL Behring (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Drugs that make a difference in patient's lives. Great 401k match. Company car.

    Cons

    Idiotic and disconnected management that cant seem to understand how to improve their reimbursement or market dynamics. Also unable to understand that their channel distribution is degrading their reimbursement and profitability. Salary and bonus are poor and subject to change.

    Advice to Management

    Train your current talent for the jobs that will carry CSL to the next level. Invest in your top employees that understand marketing, launching products and reimbursement.

    Pros

    Clear focus on bringing life saving therapies to patients. Great people. Strong pipeline. Global environment with amazing opportunities for those who pursue them. Culture of accountability. Those who seek to make a difference can absolutely make one. Brand new facilities. Progressive thinking in relationship to flexible work environment and employee recognition.

    Cons

    CSLB is going through some growing pains (as many companies do) as we rely more on R&D for new products rather than simply increasing revenue through manufacturing efficiencies or yield improvements. This has required additional R&D investment, new systems/processes as well as people with new skills. People who are not comfortable with some level of ambiguity or those who need a lot of job structure will struggle here.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in R&D. Continue to hire and retain great people. Continue to invest in our biggest asset...our employees.
