Company Updates

  • Grifols today announced that the European Commission has approved U.S.-based Rigel Pharmaceuticals' TAVLESSE® (fostamatinib) for the treatment of chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) in adult patients refractory to other treatments. In patients with ITP, the immune system attacks and destroys the body's own blood platelets, which play an active role in blood clotting and healing. The launch of TAVLESSE® in Europe and Turkey, where Grifols has exclusive rights, reinforces Grifols’ commercial strategy and reflects the company’s commitment to continue expanding its product portfolio to benefit patients. For more information:

  • 2019 has been a year of great achievements for Grifols. As we turned 110 years old, we launched new solutions to provide better treatment options for our patients, presented promising AMBAR results that show the potential of plasma proteins to treat high-prevalence diseases, and once again received recognition for the industrial excellence of our state-of-the-art facilities.

    We begin another year as committed as ever to our mission: continuing to help thousands of people around the world. Our horizons keep expanding with our pioneering spirit leading the way.

    Our best wishes for the New Year!

People are at the heart of our work every day.

Our mission to help improve the well-being of patients depends, in turn, on the generosity of plasma donors. We are proud of the donors we work with and their dedication to supplying the vital elements that save others’ lives. That is why our commitment extends to the communities in which they live—Grifols donation centers help strengthen cities and towns by creating job opportunities, stimulating the local economy, offering a variety of outreach activities, contributing through charitable donations and volunteer programs, and providing professional and educational support locally.

Grifols’ commitment to Alzheimer’s research goes back 15 years, and recently released the complete results from its groundbreaking trial AMBAR, showing a reduction in the progression of the disease in patients with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s.

    I have been working at Grifols full-time (More than a year)


    Work life balance is excellent and everyone is kind and caring. The companies mission to help patients is strongly embedded in the culture and everyone is willing to pitch in. Lots of charity events such as 10k Runs to raise awareness or Habitats for Humanity. Employees are encouraged to give back to their communities and leadership is supportive of these activities. Company has a great mission, employees are proud to work here and help those in need. Benefits are excellent, PTO is above average and accrues very quickly after your second year.


    Foreign company managed from afar, so changes happen frequently. Some changes made seem out of touch due to management being in a different country with different culture. Otherwise, there's not much to complain about

    Advice to Management

    Allow the U.S. employees more freedom and value our judgement. Otherwise, keep doing your thing!

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Grifols (Clayton, NC).


    3 people interviewed me and asked me different question about current skills and what do I do at my current job that relates to the current position. Also would I be able to work overtime and the shift hours would change after six months.
