    Nice full time work, loved our donors and co-workers

    All of management doesn't help out the employees when they fall behind, just some.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to lead by example

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Stand 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.
