    I worked at Grifols

    Pros

    I was recognized for my work performance and given a bonus and a considerable raise in my first year.

    Cons

    I was treated unfairly by my manager after reporting him to upper management for ethics violations and a general "jealousy" over my bonus and raise and overall ability to out perform him with my ability to communicate. When I reported this retaliation and that I was working in a hostile environment it was largely sidestepped and not reported by upper management to the proper H.R. personnel which led to my resignation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take seriously the complaints regarding unfair/unethical treatment by managers to other hourly employees and outside vendors. You will have a happier work place and a more productive one. Also, do not punish an employee for being sick. i.e. getting written up for a sickness as it is an unscheduled absence even when they are notified in advance of shift of an employees illness. How can you plan a sickness? this policy is absurd!

    Pros

    Decent starting salary if new to management. Able to interact with a diverse group of people.

    Cons

    There is no clear objective or direction from corporate management. Responsibility is overwhelming with no recognition or support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time in centers to see what each centers needs are. Have more positive reinforcement for center management, along with support.

    I have been working at Grifols full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Grifols is a company that truly cares about their employees. They know the value and worth of each individual and the environment you work in is very close nit and has an atmosphere of family like comfort. The company offers amazing benefits such as medical, dental, 401k, paid time off, paid travel expenses, tuition reimbursement, leadership training workshops, specialized job enhancement classes, and definitely offers many opportunities for advancement. Also the company values long term employees. The turn over rate is very low and employees stay with the company and make a career.

    Cons

    I think the company can do a better job at planning ahead. It will eliminate their employees scrambling to meet deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You all have done an excellent job serving this company and I value the great mentorship you all provide!

    Pros

    Excellent job security (company continues to grow), health benefits, and work-life balance. Decent PTO, bonuses and 401k matching.

    Cons

    This is a large company with over 10,000 employees. Many people make a career out of working here but upward mobility can be slower here than at other smaller companies.

    I have been working at Grifols

    Pros

    I'm hoping there are good perks to this job besides the benefits.

    Cons

    I haven't started working for the company just yet, I did however, receive my offer letter and start date. Looking at the reviews on here makes me a little nervous because the main thing I'm seeing on here is no work life balance. I haven't been given a schedule yet, but I really hope I won't have to find another job and quit due to work hours. I'll be back for another review.

    I have been working at Grifols

    Pros

    Grifols is the 1st company producing life saving therapy drug with plasma. The company takes a lot of pride in what we do and our customers our Donors. Grifols is a family orientated business ranked the 61st best company to work for in Forbes magazine. The company is invested in providing excellent service and care for the customers, donors and employees. I love working at Grifols and I take a lot of pride in being and employee.

    Cons

    I have no complaints; Grifols is working hard as a company to grow and eliminate the areas in concern.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a recruiter I would like to see the company turn around in the HR functions with scheduling for our Plasma Centers employees and hours. I believe once the company gets a good control of the turn-over with employees entry level position this will benefit the company from having a negative reflection and comments and gain a positive image and light we are striving for.
