    I have been working at Biotest Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    PTO days are in abundance. Stable, self-sustaining company that develops, manufactures, performs quality control testing of, markets, and sells it's own products. A lot of veteran employees (some more than 25-30 years).

    Cons

    Management is changing, so there are a lot of unknowns (company got bought out by ADMA).

    Advice to Management

    New management: Take the time to understand the number of personnel required to carry out the functions of the company, so that the employees do not become over-burdened.

    I worked at Biotest Pharmaceuticals (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Benefits! Great co-workers and very well managed.

    Cons

    Management was not willing to work with you at times. Non-medical staff telling medical staff what to do.

    Pros

    Great benefits, unbeatable PTO time! Saving lives and you get to interact with a lot of people every day. Management is understanding and tries to get you scheduled what you need.

    Cons

    Can be long hours, donors can get mean when they cannot donate. Negative co-workers can be the worst... have had some people think they are the best thing there and they are not!

    Advice to Management

    Management should try to not let the negative people affect everyone else so much - they should discipline them and get them out the door!

    I worked at Biotest Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits for full time employees and extra hours offered, depending of the department that you work for.
    Flexible schedule for those going to school, etc.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement. Depending on your department you may be required to work weekends and holidays.
    If you are a Part-Time employee, it may take you a long time to become Full-time..

    Pros

    Great place to work, decent benefits, great coworkers. Each center is different though and us having a great manager probably helps with the issues everyone else is having.

    Cons

    Close quarters creates drama sometimes. Holiday hours are pointless...production is low, but were open. Not much support is given to the training department.

    I have been working at Biotest Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I work for the corporate office, and I have been very happy with the particular job that I got. It was fairly well paid, and the people are great.

    Cons

    In the last couple of years we've been experiencing some growing pains. In efforts to save money, as people have left, we have not replaced them, and in turn every time, people have to continue taking on extra work with unfortunately no relief in sight.

    Advice to Management

    I understand needing to save money, but at some point just adding more responsibilities to each individual becomes risky. Tasks start being completed just as fast as possible, not as good as they could be, and things just start falling through the cracks. This practice is not sustainable for the long term.
