    Research Assistant

    Research Assistant (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsTax free commuter costs, friendly culture. Great learning environment. Organizers try their best to provide fun events and wellness initiatives for the employees.

    ConsYour quality of life as a research assistant is directly correlated with your principle investigator. Pay is low compared to other research institutions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer leadership/management training to supervisor PIs about rules of professionalism and conduct.

    Good place to start your career

    HLA Laboratory Technologist II (Current Employee)
    Long Is City, NY

    ProsIn the years I've worked here I enjoyed mostly the benefits and the excellent training they provide. There's a nice balance between life and work here at NYBC.

    ConsThere's not much room for promotion and salary increase. So if you're looking for a high paying job and professional growth then this place is not for you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The worst place to work as inefficient managers will dump their job on the workers , will be exhausted . HR is use.less

    HLA Laboratory Technologist II (Current Employee)

    ProsThey pay while you work but no growth opportunity.

    ConsNasty working environment. 3 technologists left in 2 months from December to January. 2 of them resigned and one got fired as the tech. informed the HR about the irregularities at cellular therapy laboratory / Stem cell Laboratory.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIneffective management. The CEO should get confidential review about their Managers and Directors from workers as they have no unions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I worked full time at New York Blood Center for more 3 years in donor recruitment.

    Account Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsBenefits and working with the donors. Mission of recruiting donors and making it a win win for all who participate.

    ConsPriorities are upside down. There is no appreciation for the donors. People who run the place are arrogant and clueless. Run like a fiefdom. No respect for the people who do the work or take the time to donate. No job security, can be fired on an insecure persons whim.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReplace managers with people who care about their employees and the donors. Bring in qualified individuals so they can grow the business. Stop hiding behind non profit status as an excuse for poor business practices and ineptitude.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    security

    Team Leader (Former Employee)
    Elmsford, NY

    ProsI was able to easily provide for my family. Salary was great! Being that it was a not for profit company I was happy to be part of helping people.

    ConsSchedules are very erratic, consequently was unable to pursue a degree. This also prevented me from going to the gym to burn off negative energy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSupport your middle management. You have some great employees (team leaders). Let them shine.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
