    I worked at Talecris Plasma Resources full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company provides excellent opportunities for skill growth and advancement within the company. There are opportunities to transfer to centers across the country once you have completed training. It is very difficult to be fired from most positions.

    Cons

    The Eugene center in particular has an extremely high turnover rate, as a result employees who exhibit dishonest or abusive behavior are allowed to remain in supervisory roles. The higher management of the center seems completely unconcerned with employees beyond their ability to generate profit, and seems to have no problem lying to or misleading lower level employees or applicants. You may be at times expected by Mid-level management to disregard standard operating procedures or current good manufacturing processes in favor of profit, and higher level management will not act to rectify the situation unless forced to do so with undeniable evidence.

    Pros

    Good benefits, ability to gain experience.

    Cons

    Very demanding, perpetually short staffed so the workload can be overwhelming with angry donors who have to wait long periods of time. Constant management turnover makes for very poor employee morale.

    I worked at Talecris Plasma Resources full-time

    Pros

    Plenty of work hours to go around, fast-paced, never a dull moment. Learned a lot while working on the job.

    Cons

    Leadership was not good and didn't seem to care about working us like dogs. They seems only concerned with how many donors they could fit in the door. They had the highest turnover rate while I was working.

    Pros

    I was able to get a lot of hands on clinical experience. I also loved the amount of people you came across.

    You deal with some unusual people on a daily basis. Management was terrible. Seniority does not exist in this place.
