    Great place to work, but needs a bit of work like any other company.

    Phlebotomist (Former Employee) Gainesville, FL

    ProsThey have great pay and benefits. Work with the same people frequently so you become a bit of a "family". Working for a good cause.

    ConsIt can be difficult to communicate with upper management. They hear what you say, but don't always act on it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the little people. They are the front line.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Software Developer (Former Employee) Gainesville, FL

    ProsTalented and supportive co-workers helped a new team member get up to speed quickly.

    ConsVery high turnover among software developers. They only have 3 developers yet they are frequently advertising for another. They are known in town for a high turnover and letting good people go without good reason.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManage strategically, employ middle managers that you trust and stop demanding input on day to day design decisions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not a very good place to work.

    Associate (Former Employee) Gainesville, FL

    ProsFlexible hours .
    Mid managers and fellow staff members were pleasant to work for/with.
    It really is hard to think of 20 positive words to say about Lifesouth community blood center.

    ConsLots and lots of micromanaging.
    The interview process for an menial admin job was well over an hour.
    Kind of disgusting how much upper management / executives make considering it's a non-profit.
    No room for advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRestructure your top tier pay scales and allocate more of that money to opening new branches and benefiting the people for which blood donation was intended instead of treating it as a money grab for executives.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    LifeSouth Community Blood Centers

    Medical Technologist (Current Employee) Gainesville, FL

    ProsThe best reason to work for LifeSouth; is the scheduling. The lab manager is pretty decent in allowing time off on short notice.

    ConsAnnual pay raise is a little skimpy at times but they have been decent in performing cost of living assessments.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the work force a bit more.
