      Pros

      Most of the people are terrific, pay and benefits are strong.

      Cons

      The workload expected of finance team is outrageous, especially given the crap systems we have to work with. This is not a learning environment. You are thrown into the deep end with a weight around your feet.

      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at CSL Behring full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Flexibility with hours OT allowed

      Cons

      If trying to progress within company it would seem unlikely unless within good standing with management.

      Advice to Management

      The progression within the company shouldn't be based on the friendly relationship you have with the employee but rather based on their performance

      "Not all pieces of the puzzle fit"

        Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 
        Approves of CEO

        I worked at CSL Behring full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Company is trying to be flexible, forward thinking for patients and employees. Making progress.

        Cons

        Not all managers live in current times. Some tend to be archaic, treat team members with little respect and can be very passive in how they manage.

        Advice to Management

        Managers need to be cohesive with the upper management and their goals in providing a positive, flexible work environment. Managers need training to be better leaders/mentors and to communicate better with their teams.

        Pros

        Great bonus structure and pay. Good Culture, patient focus.

        Cons

        Although CSL prides itself on promoting from within they have not found the proper balance. Some areas they promote from within others they will not give the opportunity to grow. Employees are seeking opportunities with other companies. CSL is losing good talent. Medical benefits are not what you would expect from a Patient Focused pharma company.

        No opinion of CEO

        I have been working at CSL Behring full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        -Lots of different jobs. Each location has numerous departments, each department has numerous jobs. -Pay and benefits are some of the best in the county. -Union board members and union stewards are all very helpful with explaining any questions you have

        Cons

        Depending on your department, it’s hard to make plans outside of work. Some don’t know if they are working the weekend until the day before. Overtime can sometimes be to much, work 12 days straight with 8-10 being 12 hour shifts (depending on department) There are times I feel like I’m back in high school with all the gossip and drama

        Advice to Management

        Revise how people get trained. There should be some people who’s only job is to train new people. Instead, there are people who haven’t even been on a job for 2 months and they are training the next person in line

        Approves of CEO

        I have been working at CSL Behring full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Products are mostly first-rate. CEO is good. Some great people trying hard. Patient commitment is strong. Some benefits are good, some not.

        Cons

        Dysfunctional behavior and weird culture in many departments and at many levels, including up to CEO. Compensation not up to industry standards. Poor career development or advancement prospects.

        Advice to Management

        None. Survey results are met with defensiveness and no action, so what's the point?
