    Pros

    Pay is fair for most employees...Not all

    I was mistreated because I was black. When I reported it...HR worked very hard to fire me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not allow people to be discriminated against and do not black ball whistle blowers.

    Pros

    The people are great! Hard working teams all around, with strong performers who are capable of achieving a lot within a lean organization. Great CEO!

    Cons

    Some bad apples carrying incredible negativity, I often wonder why they stay...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure strategic alignment from the top down. You have great leaders, but they need clarity in terms of focus, who is their customer and what they should really be doing. If everything is a priority in a resource constrained environment, then nothing is a priority.

    I worked at CSL Behring full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great industry to work in. Nice benefit package. The PTO policy is nice. Employees earn roughly 4 weeks of vacation/sick time a year.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive with the rest of the pharmaceutical industry. The operators make more then most of the salary personal. Very difficult to earn a promotion unless you're in the right crowd. Raises do not keep up with the cost of living or cost of rising healthcare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorites when it comes to promotions.

    Pros

    Learned a lot of things

    Cons

    The coworkers there really only care about gossiping, less work, the quality and appearance of the facility is terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get people to work more efficiently and less conversations about another coworker. Also, don't let the team leaders off so easily. They are just as liable as the person who committed the mistake.
