its just a production company, You're in there day in and day out so you lose sight of what you're doing is actually helping someone else. company is pretty small, the management and some of their policies are not so great. You have to shut your brain off and keep your head down just to get the day over with
403b, healthcare, dental, vision and clinic on site
Core Tech (Current Employee) – Centennial, CO – September 8, 2016
We'd go into the core, process tissue, get scolded for not processing to their standards yet processing it to work instruction. Management is in a constant power struggle. The job itself is easy and completely do-able if left to our own judgements. If we had the transparency and communication that we were promised, I think everyone would be a lot more relaxed while working.

I have been with AlloSource for several years and although I did not expect to stay long I have found a company for which I am proud to work. If you are planning on working in operations it can be very challenging to move up in the company. Oftentimes, I feel like I'm back in high school, however the company mission is strong, the benefits are great, and the company is growing quickly. The operations staff is a tight-knit group of introverts who love science and a good work-life balance. Unfortunately, because the company is growing quickly, AlloSource is going through growing pains and sometimes is struggling to move from a small tight-knit family-style company to a large competitor which has implications for production technicians and employees.
Lots of vacation time and holidays, on site clinic and gym, doing something great for other people
It can feel like high school, poor advancement opportunities
Growing business with highly reputable senior leadership.
AV Access Trainer (Current Employee) – Centennial, CO – September 20, 2015
Overall, great company. I've worked here for several years and have little to no complaints. Middle management lacks some leadership. The company is in transition, filling positions on cultural beliefs and not experience.
Data entry specialist (Former Employee) – Centennial, Colorado – September 3, 2015
An amazing place to work. Day to day tasks included data entry, file scan and upload, organizing and filing paperwork. Mission to enhance lives through the gift of donation. I had the amazing privilege of meeting donor families and assisting in making lives better. Organization and efficiency are key. The ability to meet deadlines was very important and being up to date was integral. I learned a lot about excel, word, communicating through technology, scanning, and having the ability to work as a family as well as coworkers.
great work environment, friendly coworkers
other parts of the company were not as up to date or organized
Great with promotions and year end bonus, TONS of benefits!
Demin/Lyo Operations Tech Level III (Current Employee) – Centennial, CO – August 22, 2015
Depending on the operations position you apply for it might be difficult to transfer departments further down the road, but overall, the company is amazing! But as with all work places, there are some employees to avoid.
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) – Centennial, CO – April 2, 2015
Great place to work if you are very mission driven. Career advancement can be an issue if you get stuck in the same position for a long period of time you may get looked over. The company is very reactive rather than proactive which can make for a high stress environment but that is starting to change.
Core QA Technician (Former Employee) – Centennial, CO – March 13, 2015
This company is very driven by mission. Which is great, considering what they do there.
A typical day at work was busy, a lot of hustle and bustle in very tiny spaces. There are shift "wars", and a lot of finger pointing that goes on, before anything is resolved. From working here, I learned a lot about biologic regulations, quality control, and the process of organ and tissue donation. Management is very poor. There is a lot of favoritism, and seems to be held to a different standard of accountability, by those above them. My co-workers here were fantastic. A truly great team to work with. They are all hard working and very knowledgeable regarding processes performed within the controlled work area. I would say the hardest part of the day here, is dealing with management, or other departments designed to support the technicians, being understaffed and reassigned duties constantly. The most enjoyable part of this job, is the satisfaction you feel, after you have heard a story from a donor family, thanking your company for fulfilling its mission, and giving back to the community.
The benefits here are decent, there is a clinic for employees and their families. Their mission is inspiring.
Management plays favorites, and is not held to the same level of accountability as the technicians below them.
Confidential (Current Employee) – Centennial, CO – May 17, 2014
I can agree with the previous comment. I had a two person job to do alone and I was OVERWORKED. I had to function in multiple roles consistently without assistance.took this issue to my Manager and then HR for no reason as nothing was ever resolved! I believe the mission of this company is Wonderful but by the time they have overworked you, your stress level and personality has changed. I would hear many of my coworkers complain of the same problem.

Traditional/Intermediate Operation Technician (Former Employee) – Centennial, CO – November 14, 2013
Our Mission- Honoring the gift of donation, AlloSource responsibly develops, processes and distributes life-saving and life-enhancing human tissue for our communities. We stand firm and proud for this mission.Saving one life at a time.
I worked as an intern at AlloSource this last summer. It was a wonderful experience. The work was stimulating with lots of variation, and management was down to earth and friendly, always taking extra time to clarify. The company had a overarching good feeling to it when you walked through the doors. I learned so much at AlloSource, I consider myself very lucky to have been able to work for this company.
People, management, intern office, independent work approach
Support Technician (Former Employee) – Centennial, CO – May 8, 2013
A day at Allosource consisted of me doing more work than everyone else, because I was given a two person job to do by myself. I had to make canisters first thing in the morning, once I was done I'd make a stock list. I'd take out the trash constantly. Then I would go pull my stock, then check my work email to see if I had work instructions to complete. Put my stock away, make another stock list, the go to lunch. When I came back from lunch I'd pull stock again, go put it away then take out any trash left over.I wasn't the greatest fan of some people put in management, of the fact that they thought it was fine to have one person do a two person job which physically broke me down. I did however like majority of my co-workers, they were nice people.
Sr. Project Manager (Former Employee) – Centennial, CO – December 19, 2012
There were too many meetings during a normal work week and I found it difficult in getting things done or planned. The work environment was one of reaction, rather than being proactive. To my knowledge, I can’t recall seeing a 1, 2, 3 or 5 year plan or forecast. Very little planning was ever done…
