    I worked at Grifols full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Important work is done there - making life saving medication for lesser known disease states.

    Cons

    Unless you are related to a Grifol or in a power clique, you have to watch your back always.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are paying very talented people who are not allowed to be used to their potential. They do not fit in to the culture that does not reward excellence and in fact covers for failures.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Values are high for both donors and patients but the focus is on employee development. The company continues to evolve and change to meet the demands. There are several departments and sub companies within Grifols that offer growth potential.

    Cons

    Long hours. Such a great company to work for that that internal growth can be slow. And as with any big company the stupid politics.

    I have been working at Grifols full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everything is very simple and easy to understand. Most of the equipment does not do complex process. As a calibration technician most of my knoledge is not being fully utilized.

    Cons

    The company loves to low-ball you at entrance and it can affect you in the future. It is very hard to get a raise greater than 25cents every year. It is also hard to learn new concepts everything here is basic and does not require any critical thinking. The off shifts provide lots of downtime and you can spend your free time worry free.

    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.

    I have been working at Grifols

    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.
