    Pros

    Very much a family-run company
    Good work-life balance

    Cons

    Not always clear direction from the top, and many leaders are from within the ranks of the company. Not always focused on industry-standard solutions to common problems - too often focused on internal thinking and not looking outside the company.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility where i worked.

    Cons

    Management is a revolving door at the Salem, OR center. I was there for 7 years and had 5 different center managers. A 10 year employee was fired for making one mistake, once, fired just like that. But he was also set up by the center manager and made him skew his words so she could put in in the deviation report to cover her butt. This company thrives off favoritism, you could be the best employee but if regional support likes someone more, guess what, you're screwed. Constantly asked to work off the clock, or stay late because turn over is so high.

    Advice to Management

    Hire quality people, or realize that the salem center is failing. You see only metrics and nothing else. Why has the center been short staffed for almost 2 years now? hmmm, revolving door for center management? probably has to do with everything wrong with that place.

    I have been working at Grifols full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Grifols is a great company with a lot of big plans for the future. There is a lot of potential to move up in the company and they reward hard working employees every chance they get. Management is very understanding and works with you on schedules and any issues you have.

    Cons

    Rules change constantly and some of them are far too open to interpretation. Too many rules don't have a solid reason behind them besides "because it's SOP" so employees don't understand their significance. Not to mention certain procedures are very different from other medical settings. Centers don't communicate well with others and it's difficult to get in contact with them. The software they use is horrible to navigate as well. The MST position in my center isn't very well defined. Nobody knows what MSTs are supposed to do or where they are supposed to be

    Advice to Management

    Better communication is always needed, educating the employees on what they're doing and why helps with compliance. Work on the turnover rate, my center is good at weeding out bad employees, but wouldn't have to if they vetted properly.
