    Current Employee - Financial Analyst in King of Prussia, PA

    I have been working at CSL Behring full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Most of the people are terrific, pay and benefits are strong.

    Cons

    The workload expected of finance team is outrageous, especially given the crap systems we have to work with. This is not a learning environment. You are thrown into the deep end with a weight around your feet.

    I have been working at CSL Behring full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility with hours OT allowed

    Cons

    If trying to progress within company it would seem unlikely unless within good standing with management.

    Advice to Management

    The progression within the company shouldn't be based on the friendly relationship you have with the employee but rather based on their performance

    "Not all pieces of the puzzle fit"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 
      Approves of CEO

      I worked at CSL Behring full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Company is trying to be flexible, forward thinking for patients and employees. Making progress.

      Cons

      Not all managers live in current times. Some tend to be archaic, treat team members with little respect and can be very passive in how they manage.

      Advice to Management

      Managers need to be cohesive with the upper management and their goals in providing a positive, flexible work environment. Managers need training to be better leaders/mentors and to communicate better with their teams.

      Pros

      Great bonus structure and pay. Good Culture, patient focus.

      Cons

      Although CSL prides itself on promoting from within they have not found the proper balance. Some areas they promote from within others they will not give the opportunity to grow. Employees are seeking opportunities with other companies. CSL is losing good talent. Medical benefits are not what you would expect from a Patient Focused pharma company.

      No Opinion of CEO

      I have been working at CSL Behring full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      -Lots of different jobs. Each location has numerous departments, each department has numerous jobs. -Pay and benefits are some of the best in the county. -Union board members and union stewards are all very helpful with explaining any questions you have

      Cons

      Depending on your department, it’s hard to make plans outside of work. Some don’t know if they are working the weekend until the day before. Overtime can sometimes be to much, work 12 days straight with 8-10 being 12 hour shifts (depending on department) There are times I feel like I’m back in high school with all the gossip and drama

      Advice to Management

      Revise how people get trained. There should be some people who’s only job is to train new people. Instead, there are people who haven’t even been on a job for 2 months and they are training the next person in line
