    I have been working at Talecris

    Pros

    Benefits are outstanding! Salary is competitive and the work we do saves lives and adds money to the local economy every day! Very rewarding!

    Cons

    Hours can be gruelling. Staff attendance is sometimes a problem. Fighting the stigma that plasma donation has with some communities is a constant battle.

    "It was a good expedia except for the Managers."

    I worked at Talecris

    Pros

    Meeting different people. The pay, and the coworkers. Great opportunity to grow with the company. Traveling was always an option.

    Cons

    If you did not do what the Managers liked you were gone. Regional management was a click. If you were not in their circle be quiet. Long hours and no appreciation.

    I worked at Talecris full-time

    Pros

    Made relatively good money for not having a degree.

    Cons

    worked like a dog. you never knew when you were leaving. Mandatory 50-60 hour work weeks made it impossible to go back to school. Applied for numerous positions and did not receive an interview.

    Co workers. Benefits. Good health program with rewards. No work life balance even though they say they do.

    I worked at Talecris full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not much is pro for this company except they are collecting a product needed for medicine production. Other than that I can't say much good about Talecris.

    Cons

    Inappropriate gear for working in freezers and asked for a year and a half and over 3 managers for new and refused to replace. Allows sexual harassment and hostile work environment. Passes donors for donation who should be refused. Issues with other employees are swept under the rug because they are members of the clique. The clique runs the center and management has no control. Moving up in the company is not an option if you don't belong to the clique.
