    Pros

    Health insurance
    Comfortable yet busy work place
    Staff are mostly awesome
    Sundays always off

    Cons

    Uncertainty due to recent firings
    Buyout by Grifols makes long time staff less valuable
    Management lacks independence from corporate that it once had

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand up for you staff. You know their character, now keep yours by fighting for the good ones.

    Treat the donors better. They are the lifeblood of your business, literally, so a gatorade or a speedpass will mean nothing when your numbers drop too low for Grifols to maintain you.

    Don't badmouth hourly staff to other hourly staff--every word you say gets back to them. If a person is willing to sit and listen to badmouthing, they are willing to share it with everyone else, and that becomes part of your character to the whole staff.

    Remember that "Go read the SOP" is only a fair answer if it's followed with "and I'll do your job for you while you read the SOP" because the staff with good work ethic will simply go ask someone else instead of making donors wait.

    Pros

    It is very rewarding to work for a company that is involved in the community and provides a product to critically ill patients. Pay and benefits are above average.

    Cons

    The transition to new ownership makes it hard to maintain job focus. Sometimes it appears that different departments are not treated fairly in comparison to each other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to work hard during the integration to be honest and open to the new opportunities presented while maintaining our committment to the patients.
