    Lots of employees in the labs are fresh out of college, creating a similarly youthful work environment.

    Salary is a little lower than the average for this position in a similar company in the area.

    Pros

    Good health insurance & 401K options. Pioneer Day.

    Cons

    Passive-aggressive culture and negative competition are both self-destructive.

    Advice to Management

    Do what's right and be accountable... not just what looks good on the surface. It will catch up in the end. Set the example for the employees!

    Pros

    I like my coworkers very much. They are good people and very good at their jobs. Company takes care of their sales people. Expectations of them are usually unrealistic but they continue work and perform well. 12 paid holidays, decent benefits (better than average).

    Cons

    Management is losing touch with employees. They have many good employees that have been promoted beyond their competency. Company is becoming more and more sales focused. It used to be a very employee friendly environment but that has changed a great deal in the eight years I have worked here.

    Advice to Management

    Business model seems very old-school. Need to modernize their time-off and work from home policies.

    Limited opportunity to move up.

    Pros

    Time off is stellar 3 1/2 weeks vacation and 12 holidays. Stock options and decent healthcare is available. Training is 3 weeks in Utah. Will utilize Insights during training.

    Cons

    If you don't have a background at Eli Lilly, you will have a difficult time advancing. They do not provide any management training so they manage with "carrots and sticks". They offer a variety of personality assessment tests but the tests are never used by management to motivate.

    Advice to Management

    You have great talent but you should consider letting individuals return if they leave to better your insight into the industry as most Fortune 500 companies do.

    Pros

    Myriad provides opportunities for growth based on performance. It is great to know that everyday we help people make critical decisions about their own health care.

    Cons

    Pay tends to be at the low end of the curve for all positions and they are slow to catch up. Resources sometimes seem to be insufficient which leads to high workload for a few.

    Pros

    It's very fulfilling to be of service to patients going through newly diagnosed cancers and providing answers to their questions.

    Cons

    The management has changed and is making MANY people unhappy. No matter what you do, you're doing it wrong. If you don't fit in with management, you don't fit.

    Advice to Management

    Relax!
