I have been working at Biolife Plasma Services full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great pay for those that have a high school diploma as their highest level of academic achievement. The benefits are amazing including health, dental, vision, 401K, and tuition reimbursement. It is rewarding to know that the work you put in everyday is bettering patients lives and even saving them in some cases. Great opportunity for advancement if you are willing to put in the work to get there. Great atmosphere with fun people.

Cons

Undesirable hours that mean starting very early in the morning or working late into the evening. Open some holidays and every Saturday making it difficult to have a good work/life balance. Operational policies and hours are changed frequently to meet the demand for the product. The company has to be very demanding so they are able to meet their goals as patients lives depend on it. You really have to embrace the goals and become part of the team to adjust to the disadvantages.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the triple bottom line in mind when strategizing to meet goals and forming policies. The business is important and the goals need to be met, but the employee's needs have to be taken into account in those decisions as well. The knowledge and experience each employee has cannot be replaced by hiring someone new.

    Pros

    Environment is awesome, and people are really nice.

    Cons

    They expect their employees to stay late day after day, witch can be nice sometimes but when their are kids involved staying hours after your shift is expected to be over is uncalled for. They have favorite employees also, and most of them slack, while the hard working employees get no recognition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't get rid of the good employees, watch the Masters!

    Pros

    Great people, managment is a little young and inexperienced. Rapid advancement opportunity available to non nursing staff. Average pay and benefits.

    Cons

    No opportunity to advance for nurses, the expectation is that you will cross train to fill lesser roles when you are not engaged in nursing activities. Work/life balance is approaching that of a hospital as the company continually expands hours to increase profitability. Wages stagnant with annual increases that barely match inflation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add at least one nurse to the management/decision making team. I don't like the fact that a group of 25 y/o's with no medical expertise or experience is determing how I should best do my job.
