    Talecris is an outstanding employer.

    Quality Supervisor (Former Employee) Yuma, AZ

    ProsTalecris has entry level positions and is a company with room to grow from those positions to the corporate level. The company will support your growth and success with internal and tranditional education and training. The staff is fun. The envirnonment is warm and enviting.

    ConsIf you have a family, and your child-care is not flexible, the schedule may present hardship. The company is open most holidays and weekends. The hours can be outside normal business hours to meet the needs of clientel.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement has generally been very supportive of formal education, regardless of operational hours. That shows great employee support and builds moral! Pay is very competitive for the Yuma area.
