    Pros

    Essential service to collect, manufacture and distribute blood products to health care organizations for patients whose lives depend on the generosity of donors.

    Cons

    There is a corporate expectation that the employees will immediately drop everything to meet the organization's needs. Employees are not rewarded for innovation, cost savings or loyalty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to recognize the contributions of your employees in meaningful ways.
