    Pros

    The management position is respected by the hourly staff. If you get a good Assistant Director you will be able to run your center your way if not you will have a less than desirable time

    Cons

    Many battles are fought between some quality supervisors and the management staff. some centers show favoritism towards theiir coworkers and will make life unhappy for those people they do not like


  2. Great place for learning

    Pros

    Many opportunities to learn and grow in the science field. Lots of opportunities to expand knowledge with classes such as auditing, computers, etc.

    Cons

    The company paid lower salaries than most of the competing companies. However, the company is stable providing most with good job security, so this may be looked over.

    Advice to Management

    Management was doing a pretty good job when I was employed at Talecris, however, they may need to listen to the needs of their employees as far as salaries to be more competitive.


  3. stressfree, sometimes boring, friendly atmosphere, not very organized company.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Great people, very professional and passionate about the plasma industry, yet relaxed enough to make long lasting friendships. I am very impressed by this company.

    Cons

    Very fast paced, at times the amount of work is overwhelming. Some days are just hectic. This industry is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Management at the center level is outstanding. Kudos to the great teams of Talecris Plasma Resources. Donations are increasing all across the nation!

    Pros

    If you are in with the good ole boy network then you will have a wonderful experience. If not, your experience will be horrible. Not a good place for a Northerner or an outsider to work.

    Cons

    It is a managers place to work from a standpoint of HR. Company's HR policy is heavy favored for the manager and not the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the good ole boy network and get some talent in there. Make clayton a melting pot. The un-welcoming of outsiders will catch up eventually.
