    After Talecris was acquired it feels as though the company is moving backwards

    Current Employee - R&D in Raleigh, NC

    I have been working at Grifols full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some departments offer the flexibility to work from home a few days a month.

    Cons

    No growth opportunities and low morale. The company has healthy profits and continues to downsize workers and freeze raises and hiring. After being acquired two years ago, integration efforts have barely begun. Legacy Grifols doesn't share information and is more interested in slashing budgets at any cost. They are also phasing out systems to go back to paper.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve morale and invest in your people before more of them leave for better opportunities.

    Current Employee - Regional Manager in Denver, CO
    Current Employee - Regional Manager in Denver, CO

    I have been working at Grifols full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    -Great place if you simply need a paycheck
    -Fantastic if you have no desire to move upward
    -Great for those who like silos
    -Wonderful if you have no ambition and don't like to exert yourself
    -Excellent case study if you want to learn how not to run a business

    Cons

    -Pay is low to moderate
    -Little ambition in senior management; there are occasional bright pockets, but they generally don't last long
    -Low IQ or EQ among most of the Executive Team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a consulting group to integrate the company. Operating three as one, without actually meshing them, is creating a non-beneficial competitive environment where those who stay are becoming apathetic. The recent merger with Biomat, Plasmacare and Talecris was actually a smart move but not having a plan to integrate the companies has put you way behind the competition.

    Develop a vision and share that with the team; move the company in one direction. There is currently very limited leadership ability in those that lead in Barcelona. This is noticeable throughout the company and the best people don't want to stay in this type of environment. Identify top performers and top outside talent and work to move them up. Get rid of dead weight.
