    Great work life Balance and Benefits

    Account Executive (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat Benefits, good products and ability to make great commissions.

    ConsIt appears to be a lot of favoritism. Not always based on how well you do but rather who you know to advance. Some people are penalized even if they are achieving sales growth while others who are not achieving sales growth are rewarded. This is a sales company and the more you sell should be the focus!!!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the employees and don't lose site of the big picture.

    Really Good

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsThe people there are nice and fun to work with. There is lots of room for growth. They are hands on with training and try to make sure you know as much as you possibly can before they put you on the computers. Benefits are great. Stalk options.

    ConsThey are stingy with raises. There are metrics for raises and the raises aren't that great, and they are only every quarter. You have to be in a position for 9 months before you can move to a new position.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't micro manage. Not many of them do. Try to help your team, or someone on your team grow to a manager if that's what the eventually want to do.

    If no desire to move up, would be satisfied

    Data Technician (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsSurrounded by well established, and highly educated professionals. Great coworkers, decent benefits, and decent pay considering job responsibilities.

    ConsVery difficult to move up career ladder. Management plays "favorites" and depending on which department you begin in can "make or break" you in your desire for advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore opportunities to move across departments or upward mobility. Treating all employees equally.

    Myriad is a fantastic place to gain valuable experience.

    Lab Technician II (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsFull-time employees are immediately given all the same benefits as long standing employees.
    Alternative work schedules
    Great People

    ConsThe development pathway for the main lab is murky at best.
    Production expectations seem to be out of touch

    Advice to Senior ManagementCome down to the labs and get a real feel for the workflow before establishing expected outcomes.

    Great place to start out and grow your skill set

    Medical Affairs Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsSmall diagnostic company with big ideas. Opportunities available to move within the company if you work hard and navigate the players.

    ConsCorporate headquarters based on Salt Lake City, UT and many upper level positions require relocation to corporate headquarters. Lower salaries than your larger pharmaceutical or biotech companies, but different culture that makes up for it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to grow and develop, but remember to recognize the value of employees as you grow.

    Myriad was a very good company to work for.

    Account Executive (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsThere were many pro's to working for Myriad. One of the primary was the access to clients and physicians because of reputation. Another very important was that Myriad used to value work-life balance.

    ConsWhen I started with Myriad, there was a "non-pharmaceutical" feel to the company. After a while it seemed that Myriad was moving in the direction (culture-wise) as the big pharm companies. Although there is nothing inherently wrong with that, I missed the Myriad culture that I gambled on when I came on board.
