    Pros

    Great company, culture and people. Everyone is very supportive/collaborative and a clear focus on the patient.

    Salaries are very competitive and benefits are good. 401k match is decent, but not as strong as some of the larger pharmaceutical companies.

    They do offer a stock purchase plan at a discount for employees.

    Cons

    Flexibility on working from home is limited Monday through Thursday, but varies by function. Work load can be significant, which includes some work on weekends because of rare disease. No set standard policy on comp days, which can be difficult from a work/life balance perspective.

    Bonus structure is not as good as competitors. With the amount of growth the company is experiencing, this should be much better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the environment and culture on the same path. Need to have more flexibility on working from home, especially those that travel far distances. Comp days should be standard anytime anyone works over a weekend day or the weekend. If you work one day, you get one. If you work two days, you get two. Otherwise, great place to work!

    I have been working at CSL Behring full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    CSL is by far the best employer around the Kankakee, IL area. The company offers great benefits and very good compensation. It is rewarding knowing that your efforts are helping to save patients’ lives through the medications CSL produces.

    Cons

    At times, it seems that some make it to management only because they have put in their time or who they know. Some of those managers are then never removed, harming their teams by their poor performance.

    It should be stated though that generally speaking, there is good upward mobility within CSL.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to evaluate poor performers and those that are dishonest who are in a management position. It seems that there certain individuals are never re-evaluated with a fine tooth comb to see if they are performing as expected. Ask managers’ direct and lower level reports how they view their manager’s performance. Key insights could be gained from hearing lower level employees’ feedback.

    Pros

    Not much in positive attributes.

    Cons

    Culture and values starts from the CEO and works down. Human Resources and Recruitment does not believe in diversity and inclusion. The company is very biased against minorities and uses HR recruitment metrics that don't support D & I.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house of Human Resources. The sea level management team is complacent to this also. I do not think it can change. Very disconcerting because the organization is a pharmaceutical company which should know better.

    I have been working at CSL Behring full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The majority of lower level employees are great. I have learned a lot from some cross-functional teams.

    Cons

    Disrespected and unappreciated despite working like a dog for nearly a decade. Constantly increasing responsibilities and poor work-life balance yet the minute life happens there is no loyalty or compassion. Employees in the safety department are nothing more than a number. I was treated better by other departments who recognized and appreciated the quality of my work and work ethic. I was used and treated badly. I was told to leave by members of Senior Management because they said I would never be acknowledged or recognized the way I deserved to be. Promotions are rarely available and if they do promote from within it is about who likes you and has nothing to do with your skills and experience.

    Advice to Management

    Clinical Development and Medical Writing have strong Senior Management teams but Global Safety (worse since May 2017) and Pharmacovigilance & HR are a nightmare. Learn to appreciate what you have in your employees instead of ruining what works. Promote from within, stop cutting benefits, and value loyal, hardworking employees.

  10. "Horrible place to work. Not professional at all. CSL Plasma will ruin you emotionally, and no regard for your life."

    Pros

    Benefits offered a great, however knowing what they are is the hard part, if you don't find out on your own you won't know what the benefits are your entitled to.

    Cons

    Short you work hours, if you have issues within they ignore them. Better be a favorite or you won't last long.

    Advice to Management

    Get real management as what's there now is a lawsuit waiting to happen. Quality and management not on same page. Turn over is huge.
