Pros

We make life saving products and people who work here have a real sense of purpose. The Company is high integrity and there is plenty of scope for advancement as they like to promote internally. The international aspect is good - we have a lot of contact with colleagues from around the world and the Company believes in supporting travel to work face to face with colleagues and build strong relationshios. The Company is financially secure.

Cons

The site and some of the offices in Melbourne are old fashioned and a bit shabby. If you are working on international projects youj often have to take calls late at night.

    I have been working at CSL full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent colleges to work with. Excellent company perks compared to other companies I've worked for. Well developed processes, structured and mature company. The industry agreement in place makes the company benefits and payment structure very transparent to employees. Enables me to see where i am in terms of salary and where i can go when it comes to annual performance review. And the performance review process is one of the best I've seen.

    Cons

    Management are the bottle necks. Some are great; sadly depends who you report to. They take too long to make decisions and do things for the sake of doing things rather than for the good of the company or for the sake of improving processes. Too many middle and senior bosses who think and stay short term in their role. No long term commitments. Sad to see a successful company badly run when it can go and do so much better and faster. I'm not working as fast as I am capable or making a difference as fast as I would like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less politics, recognize the management bottle necks and do something about it or remove it (don't move it elsewhere in the business). This will make things move and happen faster because it's proud managers stopping or delaying progress, not processes causing the bottle necks.

    Nice way to ease into the healthcare field with no prior certification.

    Pros

    A lot of practice with phlebotomy and customer care. I was lucky enough to work with people whom were nice and wanting to work as a team.

    Cons

    Can be stressful at times when handling impatient donors waiting to be disconnected/stuck, reporting to a donor reaction, and multiple alarms all at once. It is a physically demanding job on your feet at all times and constantly moving the entire shift. Fast paced.
