Pros

Flexible hours .
Mid managers and fellow staff members were pleasant to work for/with.
It really is hard to think of 20 positive words to say about Lifesouth community blood center.

Cons

Lots and lots of micromanaging.
The interview process for an menial admin job was well over an hour.
Kind of disgusting how much upper management / executives make considering it's a non-profit.
No room for advancement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Restructure your top tier pay scales and allocate more of that money to opening new branches and benefiting the people for which blood donation was intended instead of treating it as a money grab for executives.

    Pros

    The best reason to work for LifeSouth; is the scheduling. The lab manager is pretty decent in allowing time off on short notice.

    Cons

    Annual pay raise is a little skimpy at times but they have been decent in performing cost of living assessments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the work force a bit more.

    Pros

    Incredible mission, helping the local communities supplying blood to local hospitals. Great people to work with. Pay is comparable to similar in the industry.

    Cons

    long hours. this job is not for everyone. there is more to it than just a paycheck. you must love what you are doing, and take ownership in it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    corporate management should trust local management to make managerial decisions more regularly. sometimes takes too long for decisions to get back to the local level.
