Former Employee - Senior Plasma Center Technician in Sheboygan, WI

I worked at Biolife Plasma Services full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Benefits are good, advancement opportunities exist, and lots of interaction with people every day! This is a social workplace. Compensation is fair, annual raises are common. The location is Sheboygan is VERY well managed. The manager cares about individual employees and is a good advocate for them when dealing with the demands of higher management.

Cons

Schedule and hours vary even for full time employees, often micromanaged by supervisors, very goal driven company. At times, they struggle to find the proper balance between taking good care of employees vs. decisions that meet the company's goals. Specifically- the productivity metric goals require employee sacrifice that is unreasonable for some.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Managers, supervisors, etc: you guys make ALL the difference in a work environment like this. The small encouragements make a big difference. Talking to employees as people instead of a means to meeting a goal is important. It is always a plus when supervisors are willing to put on a lab coat and do even the lowest tasks at times so that employees feel like they're on the same team as their management.

    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!
