A long haul to go public, then comes the sellout.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Bloomington, IL

ProsHealth insurance
Comfortable yet busy work place
Staff are mostly awesome
Sundays always off

ConsUncertainty due to recent firings
Buyout by Grifols makes long time staff less valuable
Management lacks independence from corporate that it once had

Advice to Senior ManagementStand up for you staff. You know their character, now keep yours by fighting for the good ones.

Treat the donors better. They are the lifeblood of your business, literally, so a gatorade or a speedpass will mean nothing when your numbers drop too low for Grifols to maintain you.

Don't badmouth hourly staff to other hourly staff--every word you say gets back to them. If a person is willing to sit and listen to badmouthing, they are willing to share it with everyone else, and that becomes part of your character to the whole staff.

Remember that "Go read the SOP" is only a fair answer if it's followed with "and I'll do your job for you while you read the SOP" because the staff with good work ethic will simply go ask someone else instead of making donors wait.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
