    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Canadian Blood Services full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - Great cause, blood donors tend to be lovely people. - Pay is fair, not great - but good benefits for full-time permanent staff

    Cons

    - Staff morale continually low and disgruntled, often an unpleasant working environment - Confusion between head office direction and regional autonomy; makes it unclear who has decision-making power and so projects tend to stall indefinitely - Endless restructuring threatens job stability for most roles/departments - Many long-term managers/directors that are just there to collect their paycheque and pension contributions

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Canadian Blood Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing font line staff Great benefits Good pay and Pension

    Cons

    Too many middle managers who don't heave management experience CBS is changing everyday, causing more job losses CEO is on a mission to cut costs without thinking about the impact to the donors

    Advice to Management

    Management is too top heavy. There needs to be less managers and supervisors and more communication from Head Office.
