Very stressful, work life is horrible
OPO Surgical Specialist (Current Employee) –  Richmond, VANovember 19, 2018
The CEO is amazing and it trickles down form there.
The mission is spot on.
Management needs to take into consideration the stress of the job and to be more professional. Being in Virginia Beach has its perks, and working with good people helps too.

Receiving and Finished Goods Technician (Former Employee) –  Virginia Beach, VANovember 2, 2018
At times you could see your hard work in action when someone writes a letter thanking us for helping them receive a transplant from and wonderful donor.
The hardest part was the lifting as a lot of work required heavy lifting. I did learn the proper way to lift while working there to prevent back injuries.
I absolutely loved the courses/seminars they let us attend especially with new technologies. Very exciting!
Pros
Got paid to eat lunch
Cons
Very low salary

As a volunteer I cannot truthfully answer some of the questions asked. However, my experience at LifeNet was very positive. The people work together for the good of the organization.

Great Mission, Dysfunctional Culture
Manager (Current Employee) –  Virginia Beach, VAOctober 4, 2018
Great mission, products, partners, and customers. In the past 5 years the company culture has deteriorated significantly. Lack of collaboration between departments, lack of development/internal promotions, lack of diversity, overall it seems people don't respect or care to respect one another which permeates.

Interesting and easy work, but can be a stressful work environment
VIVIGEN PROCESS TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) –  Virginia Beach, VA 23454July 7, 2018
P & L Department:

Assignments are text the day you come in to work. You review the donor information you are assigned and once all data has been collected you proceed to the clean room area were processes and packages are performed.

You will learn about the human body anatomy, aseptic techniques, compounding, CNC operation, data entry, chart reviewing. You will experience processing and packaging donor tissue, which includes debriding, grinding, rinsing to packaging and freezing tissue.

Work place environment is recognizably unique. It took over of a year to find a team who understands it is okay to laugh and have fun, but we also know when it is time to work and fun has to be less when we are taking care of donors. They need our focus to minimize error.

Most of the supervising team show favoritism. Most hard workers will not be recognize. If you are a great worker you will be used to the maximum. The not so hard workers will be the ones that are put in leadership roles.

Most ideas will be rejected even if some are beneficial to the teams and company. Communication is poor in this company. Growth is the company is tough, not because everyone are hard-workers, because they would rather put a friend with poor leadership skills in charge. There is a pack at this company.
Pros
Pay, benefit, 4 work days 3 off days, paid holidays, overtime.
Cons
Donors are not tested before processing, risk of contracting diseases (pay does not include risks), lack of maturity, little to no advancement in company.

Technician Position
Tissue Recovery Technician (Former Employee) –  Roanoke, VAMay 9, 2018
A typical work day consists of being on call for 24 hours each working day with a minimal requirement of 6 monthly shifts and at least one weekend shift per month. Can result in long work days, but there is a flexible work schedule as one is able to create their own work schedule. This position is per diem and unbenefited.

Very rewarding yet stressful job.
Organ Recovery Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Richmond, VAApril 19, 2018
Feast or famine. You either are working hours upon hours with no food, breaks, or sleep. Possibly up to 60-70 straight with no down time. Management has no grasp or clue on the intensity of job. No compassion for hours worked. Great job, great mission, great benefits. Just need better management!
Pros
Benefits, bonuses, compesation
Cons
crazy hours, very stressful

Lost sight of the reason
Donation Coordinator II (Former Employee) –  Virginia Beach, VAApril 6, 2018
Primary focus is on money making and the huge bonuses given to management over the empathy towards people who have lost someone close. Research bonuses given and create HUGE income to management to offset for non-profit status. Not a company that truly cares for other human beings but rather for their fat wallet.
Pros
Bonuses
Cons
Hostile ; money driven

Worked in MS Processing, Second Shift
MS Processing technician (Former Employee) –  Virginia Beach, VAApril 2, 2018
Work days were long and stressful. So many things that could go wrong with a high level on responsibility placed upon the techician. Moral was low generally all the time. Management expected to keep the same level of production even when our shift was down 2-5 workers.
Pros
Paid lunch and occational activities
Cons
Stress and long hours

Great Benefits, Inconsistent Leadership
Tech (Current Employee) –  Virginia Beach, VAMarch 25, 2018
The benefits at LifeNet can't be beat as far as I am aware. The culture is also overall really awesome. Most employees really value the mission statement and work together as a team to collaborate towards serving that mission. The leadership is a bit inconsistent however. Some departments have great leadership and others do not. Some departments are severely lacking in ethical and respectful leadership.
Pros
Benefits, Pto, Sick time
Cons
Leadership

Amazing learning experience
Marketing Communications Intern (Former Employee) –  Virginia Beach, VAMarch 19, 2018
While I interned at LifeNet Health, I worked in the Marketing Communications department. This department was very important in conveying LifeNet's services to others. They helped to make creative content that would help people understand LifeNet's purpose. My job consisted of enforcing brand compliance, assisting in the launch of the new company website, and developing an organization systems for creative content. Working here was a great learning experience and really helped me solidify what career I wanted to pursue.
Pros
Wonderful learning experience

Worst recovery office out of national...
Tissue Recovery Technician (Former Employee) –  Renton, WAFebruary 12, 2018
Management is absolutely awful at this particular location. I cannot vouch for other offices but this one should definitely be avoided. Management justifies their abuse and disposal of employees by calling them "mercenaries".

The "training" is an absolutely atrocious, unorganized mess. Many seasoned employees have offered to help better training but this of course goes on the deaf ears of the micromanager who knows more than anyone else in the industry although they were never really a tech. They also change policies on a whim according to some weird idea they randomly regurgitated out.

I agree with another reviewer on this particular point:

"Tissue program and the upper leadership within that department are the absolute worst in the industry. The fundamental core structure and values of the tissue program is all over the board. Constantly changing. No consistency in policy and practice among the regional offices.

Fundamental tools like donor management software is archaic at best. Some of the worst regional recovery staff in the industry. Traning program is like having the blind lead the blind. Recovery stats are some of the worst in the nation."
Pros
Mission is great but the same for all tissue banks
Cons
Managment

Fast pace environment but not many oppurtunities to advance in company
Processing Sterile Department Technician (Current Employee) –  Virginia Beach, VA 23453January 10, 2018
Good job for established persons in a career, not so much if you are trying to build a career. Mostly overworked and underpaid, and the work hours dont leave you much time to balance your life.
