    Pros

    stable, fair compensation, especially on 401K matching

    Cons

    Cannot speak for all department. My department is stressful. Upper management not responding quick enough to support operations. Daily fires to put out....

    Advice to Management

    Come to the floor and actually see the operation and its problems.
    Be more flexible with hiring temps for support due to large fluctuations with workload.

    Pros

    Once staff are off of orientation , the medical staff is able to work independently. The donors are usually very nice to the Medical Staff, The Center can not open without a CMS in the center. The Center Medical Director is very kind and gentle, and easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Management can be overbearing at times. The Quality management checks the file, if you forget to initial and date all entries then you are placed on a log for the error. The next day,they read all errors found, this log is available for all staff to read, and know how many errors all staff has accrued.

    Pros

    Nice facilities and no graveyard shift

    Cons

    Only 2 supervisor positions total

    Advice to Management

    Promote people more often, as long as they're worthy of being promoted. there are times where people are clearly worthy and yet aren't promoted

  9. Extended hours and a demanding culture, it's not for everyone but you do help a lot of people in the long run.

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity for advancement and development
    Contribute to the overall well being of patients and donors directly and indirectly
    Great benefits

    Cons

    Extended hours
    Behind the times compared to some competitors
    Rapidly evolving regulations and policies can be difficult to keep up with

    Advice to Management

    Aim for a goal beyond what the competition is doing, not just to catch up. Benefits are great, but work life balance plays a large role in employee retention

  10. Salary is ok

    Pros

    My direct coworkers were kind, helpful, small family type of environment, hard working, devoted to their jobs, great training coordinators.

    Cons

    The paid time off/sick/vacation time isn't even 10 days a year yet the company expects you to work 7,8,9 days consecutively and then rarely get 2 days off in a row! A lot of pressure from upper management on throughput times, the more you give, the more they demand. This job would make me have a mental breakdown at some point if I stayed. Morale is low even though the employees are not showing it...management couldn't care less.

    Advice to Management

    Try talking to the employees at the donor centers who work so hard for you everyday for your bonuses. A simple hello and a smile wouldn't hurt! Stop micromanaging the employees! We know our job roles & responsibilities...you don't need to remind us so often.
