    Pros

    the company has good health benefits. Since its open 24/7 the hours are flexible. Not much else good to say.

    Cons

    Parking is horrible. Offsite parking delays you by 30-40 minutes daily. They dont compensate you for this lost time. Raises are just cost of living increases and they consider them a bonus/ raise. given out to certain
    employees. No performance evaluations either so those "raises" are given out to managers favorite employees. Vacation and sick time is below average. Company has no problem spending money on electronic kiosks across the campus and have a lavish holiday party but cant afford to spend some money on the employees EVER.

    Advice to Management

    Start respecting your employees. Some of the newer positions actually require thinking and a deep knowledge of the subject. Stop thinking you can replace these people so easily. Times have changed.

    Pros

    Lab is very flexile great for vacations as you get 3 weeks vacation after 2 years of employment pay is ok not the best

    Cons

    There isn't much room for growth. Most techs leave after a year or two. It's either find a new job or be stuck on the bench with little to no raise for years

    Advice to Management

    Help train in different areas of the lab. Since turnover is so high the least they can do is train in multiple areas to give a better opportunity to the people who are there for the long haul

    Pros

    Flexible, fun, relaxed. Room for advancement if you work hard. Awesome benefits

    Cons

    I really have nothing negative to say and I've been there over 12 years. You have petty nonsrmdr like any other office environment but nothing out of the morm

  6. A fairly redundant job that should be viewed as a means to pay the bills and not as a career.

    Pros

    It had a high school atmosphere where everyone knew each other and certain fun cliques would form. Laid back in terms of coming to work on time, call outs, etc.

    Cons

    Too much gossip at the workplace. Some people are downright rude as some would not greet you as you walk past them. The graveyard shift is not fun.

    Pros

    Great medical benefits, Life Insurance policies, Dental insurance, work schedule flexibility, comfortable environment for the employee as well as the patient in the patient service center.

    Cons

    My only challenge I've experienced is being cut throated by other employees through gossip. Too much caddiness & pettiness among the employee & employers. Too much favoritism. Raises are a joke. Communication between supervisors & managers with the plebs are horrible.

    Advice to Management

    When hiring supervisors & managers to run this company, there needs to be more acknowledged potential persons who are fair to all & not just speaking down to their employees with disrespect.
