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

    Pros

    Always entertaining. Room for growth in to corporate positions if you have the ability to prove yourself to certain people and py your dues. Good luck getting there.

    Cons

    Low pay, no work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should act more as leaders and not bosses. The pressure from upper management is a burden and not uplifting. You feel beat down rather than built up. Its difficult to grow if you're always being held down.

    Pros

    On the job training was great.

    Cons

    Seldom had schedule in advance. Hours were not consistent. For example: Off Sunday work Monday work 6-230, Tuesday 9-530, Wednesday 8-430, off Thurs. Work Friday 7-330, Sat. 615-245 Sunday 9-530, Monday 9-530, Tues 6-230, Wed8-430, Thurs 615-245 off Friday and Sat. but no schedule until the Saturday before you worked. Difficult to get days off especially around holidays. Open everyday except Christmas and New Years. Very little growth potential and horrible pay for the hours worked. Oh yea and more often then not didn't get off at scheduled time and got in trouble for having overtime

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with potential employees about what to expect working for the company.
