    I have been working at Bio-Reference Labs full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent Medical, Dental and Vision Insurance; Excellent Pay for Similar positions in other companies; Flexible Schedule; caring managers; Mom and Pop atmosphere, and everyone knows each other.

    Cons

    Practically no upward advancement and it is very difficult to be moved to new projects; upper management is stingy about hiring where there is a need for more workers; the parking situation is horrendous and requires better management; new projects are rushed without concern for trouble shooting which leads to issues with the project.

    I have been working at Bio-Reference Labs full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The work that I do here is actually very fascinating, I'm learning a lot of new things and am actually able to apply fundamentals and concepts learned in college. The work itself is easy physically. The amount of fulfillment i get is very high considering what we do here is very important and is tangibly relevant to actual people's lives ( many people may need laboratory testing and confirmation from these tests, as you can imagine may be very important to the concerned individuals and families concerned). This can actually be a very pleasant place to work.

    Cons

    As previously stated in the title and in addition, this can actually be a very pleasant place to work, if the dramatics and gossip are excluded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More effective communication may help the overall company culture, as the work itself can be pleasant, if the company culture can be a bit more professional, this place can actually be very decent.
