I worked at LifeSouth Community Blood Centers part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Flexible hours .
Mid managers and fellow staff members were pleasant to work for/with.
It really is hard to think of 20 positive words to say about Lifesouth community blood center.

Cons

Lots and lots of micromanaging.
The interview process for an menial admin job was well over an hour.
Kind of disgusting how much upper management / executives make considering it's a non-profit.
No room for advancement.

Advice to Management

Restructure your top tier pay scales and allocate more of that money to opening new branches and benefiting the people for which blood donation was intended instead of treating it as a money grab for executives.

    I worked at LifeSouth Community Blood Centers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Talented and supportive co-workers helped a new team member get up to speed quickly.

    Cons

    Very high turnover among software developers. They only have 3 developers yet they are frequently advertising for another. They are known in town for a high turnover and letting good people go without good reason.

    Advice to Management

    Manage strategically, employ middle managers that you trust and stop demanding input on day to day design decisions.

    Pros

    The best reason to work for LifeSouth; is the scheduling. The lab manager is pretty decent in allowing time off on short notice.

    Cons

    Annual pay raise is a little skimpy at times but they have been decent in performing cost of living assessments.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the work force a bit more.
