I worked at Gulf Coast Blood Center full-time (more than an year)

Pros

I met some nice people and the job duty of saving lives meant a lot to me. I always had something to do and every day was an adventure.

Cons

Bullies are a major problem there. HR is an incompetent group that favors certain "creeds" and goes "Above and Beyond" to protect those certain creeds. Lack of communication is a big problem there along with incompetent managers and back stabbing "friends" that will be more than happy to throw you under a bus to put themselves in a better job title.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Jettison the bullies and enforce rules to EVERYONE, not just the employees you don't like. And treat everyone fairly.

    Lots of good folks work there, but departments don't work well together.

    I worked at Gulf Coast Blood Center

    Pros

    Great employees work there who care a lot about the organization and its mission. The business of collecting blood is a good cause to work for. Some innovative business practices are used to get the work done.

    Cons

    Lots of favoritism. Departments fight as often as they work together. Some of upper management are really arrogant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to stop fighting amongst themselves and create a more cooperative environment company wide. Also, being a manager doesn't mean you can delegate all of your work to your subordinates.
