    Always looking to improve.
    Successfully incorporate both inside and outside managers into leadership teams.

    I’ll let you know if I find one. No company is perfect, but Grifols has always done right in my eyes.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that a strong and motivated staff can carry your business. Give them a safe place to grow and a reason to come in everyday. They’re capable of taking care of the rest.

    Pros

    Work life balance is excellent and everyone is kind and caring. The companies mission to help patients is strongly embedded in the culture and everyone is willing to pitch in. Lots of charity events such as 10k Runs to raise awareness or Habitats for Humanity. Employees are encouraged to give back to their communities and leadership is supportive of these activities. Company has a great mission, employees are proud to work here and help those in need. Benefits are excellent, PTO is above average and accrues very quickly after your second year.

    Cons

    Foreign company managed from afar, so changes happen frequently. Some changes made seem out of touch due to management being in a different country with different culture. Otherwise, there's not much to complain about

    Advice to Management

    Allow the U.S. employees more freedom and value our judgement. Otherwise, keep doing your thing!
