    I worked at CSL Plasma full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's an opportunity for the most desperate of people.

    Cons

    The lowest pay, the most demanding hours and effort...Also high risk dealing with potentially infectious blood(and other body fluids). Yuck especially considering the high volume and the risky population!

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional, especially the Center manager! Pay more to donors and employees! Treat employees with respect!

    Pros

    The work is not difficult, and the people are (in general) pleasant to work with. Great place to gain experience in a large scale laboratory

    Cons

    The work is very tedious and not challenging. Seems like it takes a lot of work to get through to upper management when raising concerns with processes. They also seem to operate fairly chaotically for such a "regulated" lab. Every process is becoming more and more automated, growth of the company seems optimistic, however employment seems to be declining.

    Advice to Management

    Listen down more, we have good ideas too.

    I have been working at CSL Plasma full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    learn a skill
    easy work
    great travel opportunities

    Cons

    Very low pay
    corporate is clueless- most of them don't actually know what it takes to work in a center
    very poor treatment of employees
    favoritism and sexually abusive mentality
    At local level- management is untrained and inept
    very poor marketing ideas and unrealistic agendas from corporate put on to entry level staff for extra "positions" in which there is no raise or time in the normal work day to complete ay extra tasks for said positions.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more and you might get actual people qualified to do the job to apply. Hire some marketing teams to do more about promoting the centers in their local areas. stop trying to divide the number employees allowed to be hired on and make them do double the workload. in the 8 years I have worked at CSL my centers numbers of staff have literally decreased by half and these employees are still carrying the same work load done by twice as many people.
