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

    Pros

    There are so many positive things I could say about AlloSource but I will keep it quick. I have worked in quite a few different human donation settings, i.e.; OPO's/transplant centers, and I will say that this is by far the best! The wellness and insurance benefits, opportunity for growth, and satisfaction with management makes this a wonderful company. I was recently promoted to a different position and actually encouraged by my boss to apply and pursue the opportunity. I think that if you want to be happy here, you will be. If you want to grow here, take time to invest. I’ve read some of the previous negative reviews and can’t imagine...although I have never worked in the core to give insight. The whole company is constantly receiving emails from the CEO with the slogan “what you do matters” so I think you missed the point if you think leadership doesn’t care. We have recipients come in on a regular basis to thank us for our commitment to donation. This is truly a great company. They treat employees with respect and genuinely care about the culture and environment for everyone. This cannot be said for every company, especially in transplant. Also, I think it should be known that I’m not a big fish.. making what people describe as a ton of money. I think by most standards I make very little money but I am doing something that saves and enhances the lives of others and for that I am grateful.

    Cons

    The only con is something that I knew when accepting a position here, a commute. I wish there was a benefit to subsidize public transportation to a from work. Maybe an EcoPass or light rail benefit.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees and encouraging them to take opportunities for growth. It means a lot. Also, your wellness program is top notch!

    Pros

    The benefits are great - lots of PTO to start, tuition reimbursement, learning and development opportunities, wellness incentives, etc.

    The company is very mission driven - honoring the donor is everything, even if it means making the wrong "business" decision, which I think is cool. Hearing from donor/recipient families is always rewarding.

    Depending on your position, you get to work with many different departments.

    Challenging yet rewarding work.

    Cons

    Many people here have a distrust of upper management in general, possibly due to the fact that most are extremely underpaid and people higher up are overpaid.

    Frequent changing of priorities is difficult to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Finding a way to increase salaries would be much appreciated.

    AlloSource conducts annual compensation reviews with “like” companies and matches salaries to those companies to stay competitive with the job market.

    Pros

    This is a company that I would tell good hard working people to go and check out. This company real cares about the employees that works here, we are just like a family. If I really need some help on any level I know they will be right here for us. How I know, They have done it for me and its was a true blessing. I didn't even ask for anything. They just did it out of the kindness of there HEART!!!!!

    Cons

    Hard work and long hours, but its well worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    there are none. unless you're a temp because they pay them better than their employees.

    Cons

    treat their operations technicians HORRIBLY
    don't value the work you do, only the money you make them
    the "leadership team" doesn't do anything but ask for insight and ignore it.
    no place for advancement

    Pros

    Some benefits you may get if you can stand the environment long enough. I guess you are helping people, it just sucks that you are also helping others to get filthy rich.

    Cons

    Pay is awful. Workers are treated like peasants and cordoned off to their own section of the building away from all of the “white collared” workers. Many of the people working in the core are very intelligent and deserve way more respect.

    Advice to Management

    Do whatever you want, people who respect themselves will not work for you.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and wellness programs
    Flexible hours and shifts
    Four day work weeks (operations)
    Plenty of overtime opportunities
    Great mission statements

    Cons

    Lack of morale with the senior techs
    To work in operations you HAVE to start as a temp
    Operations is under appreciated and very underpaid
     CONSTANT training because AlloSource is hiring so many new people so there are inexperienced people training the newest people
    Push for more and more output, yet the staggered shift plus overtime creates lack of room and equipment availability
    Coming in for overtime means searching for equipment and stealing rooms
    Annomosity between the shifts due to differing work loads (less is expected depending on the supervisor)
    Inconsistent expectations for operations

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for giving us great incentives and amazing benefits. However, stop throwing more people into operations with the hope they will stick. It is exhausting training people for a couple weeks and then having them leave. Set a standard that shifts need to cooperate in order to complete the work scheduled, not pass it off to the next shift! Also, make it a point to pay your employees in operations well. It’s frustrating to know that you’re considered below everyone else in the company despite working hard to make the products the company sells. Finally, if you want increased production, give us more equipment, hire better people and stop allowing everyone to come in for overtime during the overlap between shifts. Hiring more people that are incompetent is making it seem like AlloSource is desperate and does not care about their mission.

    Pros

    Good people on the ground level. Equipment Management/facilities is a disaster due to upper management not knowing how to write procedures . I feel bad for the department. It was good up until the last few years.

    Cons

    Upper management is horrible. Upper management does not listen to their employees. They no longer have dedication to dedicated reliable employees.
