    Pros

    Most but not all donors are nice people.

    Cons

    Worst management display ever! Prime example of what NOT to do in management!Good ole boy system and non-educated people in high paying positions. Flocking from one center to the next! Promoting ignorance and jealousy of you are seen as an educated threat to them. So sad these people are destroying the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of you need to get an education on managerial skills and take the job seriously and not as a social setting!

    Former Employee - Quality Supervisor in Yuma, AZ
    Former Employee - Quality Supervisor in Yuma, AZ

    I worked at Talecris full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Talecris 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.

    Cons

    If 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 ManagementAdvice

    Management 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.
