    Pros

    Your peers and other departments are all friendly and most care about their job. From a non-union perspective the 401k program is good.

    Cons

    They pay their union folks well and significantly more then everyone else working hard just like they are. Everyone else unless you are in upper management makes far less and not even up to to industry averages for the job titles. Non-union pays $400 month for insurance, Their wage scales for titles are behind industry by like 5 years, All of the talented folks leave within a few years. Most of the people that stay are because they got into the "good ole boy club" or are from the area. If you are moving to CSL and plan to advance, DONT DO IT. I made that mistake, bought a house, and drank the cool-aid upfront. Now I realize there is no room to grow, nor get rewarded how hard or how many free horus you give the company. If you are salary it is expected you put in a lot of overtime and you are NEVER compensated or rewarded to it. I work along contractors and union employees who ALL get paid for being here on weekends. VERY FRUStRAtiNg. for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP THE MICROMANAGEMENT. It is getting so bad we might have to start asking permission to go to the restroom. No trust with anyone but senior staff that anyone beneath them can be empowered to do anything. No real chance to advance within your specialty of expertize (non-union)

    I have been working at CSL Behring part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours. Good food in the cafeteria and great prices for food.

    Cons

    Culture and environment is like a sorority and fraternity, no matter what department you work in or what your job title is. If someone person don't like you, then all persons in the department don't like you. HR people have been there so long, their views and work is substandard. Recruiting is based on ethnic background, not experience, education, or knowledge. They bring temporary employees in on a temp-to-hire position and let you go on your 91st day. Local and international employees are condescending. No diversity in most departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice....management is part of the bad core. The effects roll down the employee line.

    Pros

    CSL HQ is located in suburban Philadelphia; good area to live, work, and thrive. CSL offers competitive salaries, fair benefits, and financially, is doing well. However...

    Cons

    Toxic environment. A lot of in fighting, kiss up/kick down distrustful managers. Very few opportunities to move up unless you are on the A list or an ex patriot. Overall, many are frustrated and looking to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a serious look at the style/culture that has taken over the last two years - clean your house starting with HR, WW Ops, and Finance. Try motivating your employees instead of beating them down and out the door. PS, all the professional coaches hired in efforts to get others to get along is not working. Save your money and solve many problems by getting rid of the bullies.

    Good company and good pay

    I worked at CSL Behring

    Pros

    The pay is good and they have a great work environment. I would be interested to work here in the future.

    Cons

    They did not fully trust that a new hire could do the job right, so initially there was some hand holding. Eventually this changed after management became more trusting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to the new hires and ideas

    Pros

    Many disciplines to learn if willing.

    Cons

    The environment is quite hostile. The caliber of the employees is testament of whom is willing to stick around the longest mostly. The management has little control over the donors or the employees causing one to question if management can protect the employees in a number of manners, that being personal safety, integrity of workplace, and of the product.

    Pros

    Good 401K match, flexible work schedule, hard workers. Interesting projects/products. Ability to see what you do really makes a difference to patients.

    Cons

    Company culture is too political, hard work is not appreciated unless you are a member of "the club", too many chiefs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue. You are loosing good people who have been with the company for years while trying to make the company something it is not.
