Pros

If you are on Welfare and Medicaid and need to be careful to not make too much money this is the place for you!

Cons

Everything! The inmates run the asylum. The worlds most miserable clients. Worst of the worst.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Why didn't you ever leave? It might have to do with your lack of marketable skills.

    Current Employee - Medical Screener in Norfolk, VA

    I have been working at Octapharma Plasma full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Good medical experience for those just starting out in the medical field
    - Easy to be cross-trained to other departments and increase salary/experience

    Cons

    - Extremely low salary for everything that you have to do
    - Actively seeks out employees with college degrees but does not pay them according to expertise or experience levels
    - Management is so far detached from the actual problems of the employees that many don't even bother going to management with problems
    - Donors are rude at best and dangerous at worst (there's no security in the building, and my location faced many problems with sexual harassment from donors)
    - Hours are ridiculous; you could easily be there until 10pm during the busier times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more sensitive to the needs of employees and stop trying to work them like workhorses. They are people too, surprisingly enough.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    Pros

    No two days are exactly the same.

    Cons

    Negligible room for professional advancement and financial compensation is well below comparable averages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase security measures for all field locations and don't be afraid to reward those who are directly responsible for that very significant success you continue to enjoy in a hard economic climate.
