- Lots of micromanagement by staff that do not know what they are doing
- Same monotone work every day
- Rude management staff that are encouraged by senior management
- Hardest part of the job is being talked to as if you were a child and being treated like you know nothing
- Most enjoyable: non Rude donors and non Rude staff
- Very toxic culture

Toxic and venomous environment
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NEJune 6, 2016
CSL was a stepping stone for my Science degree, so I thought. The information learned had almost nothing to do with working in a lab. The jobs entails much on production, customer service, and numbers. Meaning, how much plasma the company can drain from donors within a day and then prizes with small cash amounts to keep many of them coming back. it's mainly working class, those on disability, students, unemployed o/in between jobs, or out for quick cash donating.
The environment is so toxic from management on down, where behaviors of venomous acts are more than rewarded than discouraged. Management sits back to watch the cameras when they send venomous employees to harass those who do not participate in the middle school "MEAN GROUP" nonsense. The bullying is of that you wouldn't believe from grown ups. The CSL Plasma work environment is AWFUL and damaging to those with a sincere conscience.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Bullying, horrible management, and lack of consistency

HR Ops Partner (Former Employee) –  King of Prussia, PAJune 6, 2016
I was in CSL for about a month which is so short as a contractor but I have gained a lot of experience from this job. It's like working in a company for an year. As an entry-level functional consultant, It's a very good experience working with them.

Too many managers and directors, where not so many qualified employees to get the job done.
Sr Systems Analyst (Current Employee) –  King of Prussia, PAMarch 25, 2016
Only a few individuals around who lead by example. When it comes to employees, in quite a few departments, there are several disrespectful, disgruntle, dishonest, unethical characters are roaming around in this company.

If you are good at what you do and believe in yourself, stay away or your ability will be hindered due to the culture of this company!
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
Lack of resources and technology, Employees' background mismatched with their roles, Too much expectations

Anonymous (Former Employee) –  AnonymousOctober 10, 2015
CSL used to be a strong company and a great place to work. In the last 1-2 years, the company has turned the reigns over to a cadre of poor leaders from the big pharma space who are giving key jobs to their friends and ruining the company day by day. It's gotten to the point where people are literally walking out with no place to go.
Pros
Nice onsite gym
Cons
Incompetent leadership, directionless management, throw people under the bus culture, lack of processes are borderline illegal for an FDA regulated industry

CSL Behring is a global leader in the plasma protein biotherapeutics industry. It is rewarding to work for a company that focuses on saving lives and improving the quality of life for people with rare and serious diseases.

Controls Engineer (Former Employee) –  Bradley, ILJuly 30, 2014
First of all CSL is great if you work as an Unionized hourly employee or a contractor. For those two groups of people there always limitless budgets. If you come in as a salaried employee you are trapped. HR does an outstanding job portraying this place as potentially endless opportunity and overall a great place to work. Well... it isn't!
CSL is so stingy, getting a simple computer accessory for your desk computer turns into a month lasting battle with IT, that you might not win. As an engineer you are handed a pager (yes a pager) and are expected to call back(using your own phone) whenever you get paged. You will not be reimbursed IN ANYWAY for your weekend, or night hours. Getting a laptop to do your job is like an act of God - you're supposed to share one with others. Your so called merit increases (rounded at 2.5% yearly) are penalized by the fact that Union employees have their increases at lot higher scales, so whatever you negotiate up front, you will be stuck with it regardless what you do in the future. Every morning you walk into the building you are being asked for money by some good cause committee - remember CLS loves to portray themselves as a great contributor to the community, so what that its at your cost.
If you are in anyway ambitious about what you do, and are not in need of a job, steer away!!
Pros
free fastfood lunch once for two months.
Cons
so many...

Good people, great products, lousy management
Clinical Research and Development (Former Employee) –  King of Prussia, PAJuly 9, 2014
SEPTA buses should avoid CSL with their culture of "throwing people under the bus", as staff struggle with poor direction, strategy flip-flops, and management blame game. Staffing agencies can't fill roles, as candidates run for the exits and staff look for other opportunities. With a robust pipeline and a specialty niche in plasma proteins, it should not have to be so hard to work but no accountability for directors.
Pros
available training, rehabbed offices, new cafeteria, good place to get some experience
Cons
no processes and first time directors making a mess

No room for advancement/Unprofessional HR Staff
Scientist (Current Employee) –  BradleyFebruary 14, 2014
Do not work here if you are a young, talented individual with the desire for growth within your career--it will be a long time coming. The salaries are bottom tier for entry and mid-level positions following you on the way up.
Pros
corporation benefits, good mission
Cons
incompetent hr, low pay, no room for advancement

Pharmacuetical Eng. (Former Employee) –  Kankakee,ILFebruary 10, 2014
Everyday was a learning process. The supervisors were very helpful and very easy to communicate with. My co-workers were very friendly and hard working, which made me very hard working and thrive to do my best every day. I enjoyed the hard work because on a good note it made the time go by, but seriosly made me a better multi-tasker and efficient to get work done in a timely matter with no mistakes.
Pros
would would have pot-lucks on every friday if work provided that free time.
Cons
some times did not get a break
