Horrible staff.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) –  Peoria, AZFebruary 1, 2017
Training is so unorganized, the girls in the back are awful and rude. Management basically says they will talk to them and don't. They complain about having no help but in return they scare potential employees away. This place is awful and no one has control over their disrespectful employees. Not to mention its dirty, never change their gloves in between sticking tge Donors, I witness donors sitting in chairs with dried blood on them.
Worst place I have ever worked and to refuse to ever donate there ever again!
Pros
Lunch room?
Cons
Bad pay, bad employees, dirty.

Recp.Tech "currently training 95% chance i'm not going back
Recp.Tech (Current Employee) –  Melrose Park, ILFebruary 2, 2017
The training is a mess, never in all of my years of working have i came to an orientation with a trainer that talks more about her lifestyle then the material that should be taught. They wanna pay nothing but wanna cross train everyone that comes into there doors. Management sucks and its a sad environment. I have never experience something so non professional in my life thus far.
Pros
Free lunch on first day

Phlebotomist (Former Employee) –  Greenville, SCNovember 9, 2016
Enjoyed working there for about a year. After a year promotions were promised that were not given. People call out of work way too much and messes the whole day up. Good luck getting a manger to help or cover a lunch so u can eat will not happen. Managers at this facility were by far some of the laziest individuals I've ever had the opportunity to work with. Great company, not the right ppl managing. They do not pay there workers enough thus this vicious cycle of employees who do not stay.
Cons
No lunches, no breaks, can't leave until last donor is processed. Rude patients

Demanding with opportunities to learn & be challenged
Finance Manager (Former Employee) –  King of Prussia, PAFebruary 9, 2017
CSL expects a lot of their employees, if you come from "big pharma" it may take some time to acclimate to the culture and expectations. Philosophy on bonus payout was somewhat stingy with them paying out 80-90% of target for strong performers (just something to keep in mind)

Products are amazing but new management is terrible
Area Manager (Current Employee) –  King of Prussia, PASeptember 14, 2016
This company has such amazing products, but under new CEO and yes men following behind him, it's turning into big Pharma which is not the direction a successful biotech company should be going. The culture and work life balance is horrible and management seriously needs to get on track or there will be many more people leaving soon.
Pros
All the perks included
Cons
Micromanagement

Excellent place for a person that can move in a fast paced enviornment
Senior Phlebotomist (Current Employee) –  Oak Park, MIOctober 9, 2016
CSL is awesome because of the endless opportunities that can be afforded if you are willing to remain with the company. Unfortunately CSL does not pay a living wage that would allow a single individual to meet bill obligations and save.

Corrupt IT Department Managers/Directors (they are all buddy-buddy)
Sr Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  King of Prussia, PASeptember 5, 2016
If you don't have any ambitions in life, go for it; you will get your paycheck in every two weeks. You don't have work to much - just say that IT vendors need to provide updated software.

Corrupt IT managers; those are good for nothing. They will throw you under the bus in a routine manner to save their tails. CSL's IT is outdated. Some of the worst (so-called) Sr IT/BT (that's what they call their IT Dept.) Managers are harbored at CSL. Wonder if the Business there thinks at all as to why some of the Jr workers are always blamed and involved with decision making! (when Sr Managers got no clue about their critical applications)
Pros
You don't have work to much - just paly blame games; point fingers at others.
Cons
Your manager will try to intimidate you. If you do your job, you are doomed; if you don't, you are still doomed.

Bunch of the worst IT Project Managers are working at CSL
Analyst/Developer (Former Employee) –  King of Prussia, PAAugust 17, 2016
The supervisor I was reporting to was the worst of the worst one I will ever know. He has no integrity and has many behavioral issues. He was pretending to know IT stuff very well and always claimed he has so much experience that he forgotten half of the stuff. Sadly his background was non-IT engineering. He could not even be a good project manager (forget about the IT part) cause he lacked understanding of the IT methodology and constantly needed to be explained many basics. But he was showing off to his bosses that he is the guy who does things and always collected credits. CSL seems to have no problem harboring such project managers without any problem whatsoever.
Pros
I have worked with some very nice colleagues
Cons
Too much politics

Not what they promise
Complaince Specialist Alternate (Former Employee) –  Lakeland, FLAugust 3, 2016
I worked here for about 7-8 months. I spoke with my manager on several occasions about alternating schedules because I have a child and he ignored my email and kept me on a closing schedule.
Managers were more concerned about gossip in the center instead of the actual operations.
I did like my position, I enjoyed the people I worked with in production.
Pros
Some managers are good.
Cons
Frequent changes

Playground for nasty incompetent IT Managers - Do yourself a favor - stay away from CSL!
DBA (Current Employee) –  King of Prussia, PADecember 2, 2016
CSL’s IT department takes IT to a whole new level! Incompetent IT manager makes rules as he goes along. So called validation team at KOP has no IT resources to conduct even minor testing activities. They hire consultants to upgrade IT software and those consultants see that this company lacks many processes, so they get away with pretty much not doing anything; incompetent mangers unable to communicate technical details to Business therefore projects are dragged without upgrading software to latest/stable releases. This place is filled with so-called system engineers, DBAs, analyst, managers, and some other people, those who will not last long at any other companies. Lots of games are played routinely by “political management team” and some even play games on their smartphones.
Pros
Nasty, incompetent, IT Managers; Lots of games are played routinely by “political management team”
Cons
Difficult to determine if anything good at this place at all.

Worked here for summer temporary work. Just did odd jobs so did not get a first hand look at the process of the company. Everyone seemed to be nice and a joy to work for.

Can be fast paced and you learn a lot about the pharmaceutical industry. Good room to grow. Work life balance is not the best due to weekend work.

The biggest Wonder of this century and of my IT career !!
Analyst/Developer (Former Employee) –  King of Prussia, PAAugust 23, 2016
The biggest Wonder of this century, One could just imagine how the IT department of this company still functions and survives.

Toxic culture
No transparency
No collaboration among teams.
Lack of good technical discussion thorough out the IT department.

Surprisingly supervisor does not have any clue about the technology we are working on. The Supervisor expects us to do his work then take away your work and present it to upper management to get the praise for himself. Somehow he has become the lead of the team. Do not know how??

Outdated people through out the company and they do not know what is going on outside of this company.

If you are tech savvy, want to work without any restriction and like to work on the latest technologies, this is not the company for you.

If you are good in politics, like to roam around, like to do the maintenance work and do not have any other ambitions in your life then this is the company for you.
Pros
Coffee
Cons
Could not count/Unaccountable

Too many organizational changes
Sr. Specialist, Human Resources (Current Employee) –  King of Prussia, PAJuly 7, 2016
The team I worked with was experienced and professional. The executive team still trying to figure out the overall direction of the company, which creates organizational changes too often in every department.
