    Truly a shame; some of the best people I have ever worked with, in the worst environment.

    I worked at CSL Behring

    Pros

    The people that you work with, for the most part, are truly wonderful people. That makes the day-to-day tolerable. The benefits are average to slightly above average, and the work environment is clean and comfortable.

    Cons

    The senior IT management has to be a group of the most incompetent people that I have ever seen. most got to where they are not on merit, but by default, They cannot manage their way out of a wet paper bag, they get way too involved in technical aspects of running the organization something that none of them are actually competent to do. They spend more time on their own political agenda than they do getting things done that are in the interest of the company. The "reorganization" that they put in place is a joke. They were running an organization that was not performing, and they were tasked with designing a new organization - guess how that worked out ? They gave people positions based on global location, not on ability or the fact that they were the best possible candidates for a particular position.

    The organization is now matrixed with decision makers (albeit non-empowered decision makers) all over the world, no one works together, no one is managing priorities, and you have to work ridiculous hours in order to be in meeting with people from around the world - something required by the new organizational design. The hours are long, the work unfulfilling, the stress level is high (mostly due to dealing with incompetence that hampers the ability to get anything done), and there is ZERO room for advancement. There is little regard given for work-life balance, and it is expected that you will work long hours regularly. There are way too many hands in the cookie jar, and it continues to get worse, not better. They pride themselves on how lean they run, they work you hard, and the amount of "dead wood" in the organization is amazing for a shop this lean. that, in conjunction with the long hours and lack of advancement potential, is a significant contributor to the incredibly low morale within the organization.

    I would never recommend this company to anyone that is looking for a rewarding job in IT. they will take everything that you can give them, and in the end they will give nothing back; no recognition, no advancement, nothing. There is a reason that people are leaving this place at a rate much higher than it has ever been.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Admit failure - the reorganization did not work and your leadership team, the directors, are a hindrance to progress. Dissolve the ITB and get rid of the directors - all of them. New blood, and a new organization built to deliver, not to appease the political gods, is the only way to salvage the wreck that you have created.

    Do it now, before it's too late. Your organization can and will be outsourced as a means to fix it... We all know that the Aussies don't care about the people at all.

    I worked at CSL Behring

    Pros

    Good growth potential, focused on making things happen. Decisions get made, usually in a sound business like manner. Sometimes too focused on micro-management by senior management

    Cons

    Decision making not transparent. Not competitive with compensation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve competitiveness wrt compansation, scope and accountabilities
