    Current Employee - Phlebotomist in El Paso, TX

    Pros

    the donors are great and I feel as though i am doing something to contribute to the people that need medication and cannot survive without the lifesaving plasma.

    Cons

    the leadership is bias and there is significant favoritism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    clean house starting at the top and listen to what employees need to balance their life with their jobs. schedules need to be constant so employees know when to make personal appointments and not have their pto taken to make up for time needed and then work extra at the end of the week because pto hours dont count as hours worked.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    I loved my employees and the donors and appreciated the fact that the end result was saving people's lives.

    Cons

    Everything
    - Stressful
    - No work/life balance
    - Unrealistic expectations with no resources to get the job done (no support)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees when they try to reach out to you for issues in the Centers. Don't assume you know the answer, especially if you've never worked in a Center. Don't hold high expectations for your mediocrity.

    Corrupted upper management. Promise made but never kept. Beware.

    Current Employee - Quality Associate  in  Emeryville, CA
    Current Employee - Quality Associate in Emeryville, CA

    Pros

    Vacation approvals are easily requested and approved.

    Cons

    If you work more, you will be less appreciated and will be awarded with a 25 to 50 cent raise no matter which department (e..g QC, Engineering, etc) you work. If you threaten your managers to leave the company even though you work less, you will be rewarded greatly. Promotions are not earned by hard work, but through favoritism. Corrupted Management, they will reject overtime pays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to be removed and replaced with new management. which includes Senior Managers and Directors of QC.

    Former Employee - Project Manager in Emeryville, CA

    Pros

    The senior management seemed saavy of the public relations game when acquiring the Diagnostics and Vaccines division.

    Cons

    Middle management is often the lynchpin of a successful corporate career. I'm not sure about the quality of their middle management so I cant say its a con.The little I experience I had with them doesnt bode well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of middle management

    Former Employee - Accounts Payable  in  Los Angeles, CA
    Former Employee - Accounts Payable in Los Angeles, CA

    Pros

    The pay check will cash.

    Cons

    Big corporate mentality that runs with "sweatshop" tactics. HR has no clue when dealing with associate problems. Absolutely no work life balance here. They will squeeze every minute out of you...even if it means NOT paying you for it. A/P department is overworked with a many internal problems. The Senior managers are the biggest problem. Run, don't walk from a position in the A/P Dept.

    Pros

    The pay was awesome! And seeing the donors of all walks of life

    Cons

    The employees who gave a crap about their job where dumped upon! The ones who didn't care (and admitted) continued to be rewarded! If you are a hard worker and want to advance you CANNOT do that in this company- only if you kiss butt or worse!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It wouldn't do any good- all of management is corrupt and don't give a crap about ethics!!!
