    Headed on a downward spiral.

    Patient Service Coordinator (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsI agree with the below comment; the view of the mountains.

    Cons-Bureaucratic structure with layers of management - from regional managers to department managers down to team supervisors. This, along with mandates for compliance, takes precedence over doing the right thing. It discourages change and cripples improvement. You may ask "Why do we do it this way?" The answer is often, "We've always done it this way." Forget creativity. Forget talent. Forget improvement.

    -Micromanagement is crazy and is implemented with a command and control leadership style. Employees are treated like numbers. No one cares if you fall off the face of the earth. You're replaceable. We don't need you.

    -Bonuses and rewards are given equally to everyone. And tenure precedes performance. Just another way to promote mediocrity and high turnover.

    -Because management is so stuck in the past and resistant to changes, lots of processes (basically anything done on the phone or computer) is outdated. This is 2013, not 1992!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementTenure Suppresses Talent:

    Just because “Employee A” has performed a task longer than “Employee B” doesn’t necessarily mean that “A” is more skilled than “B.” Furthermore, just because “A” has been with the company longer than “B”, doesn’t necessarily mean that “A” possesses more talent, upside, knowledge, or adds more value than “B.” When an organization promotes based upon tenure, and not based upon recognition of talent, merit, performance, etc., the company is not leveraging its true talent base. Not recognizing, developing, and rewarding talent is the fastest way I know of to drive talent out of your organization and directly into the hands of your competition.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Terrible Place to work

    Patient Service Coordinator (Former Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsThe beautiful view from your work station.

    ConsMicro management, favortism for the employees they like. Work long hours, work faster, time lines given. The computers and phones need to be updated and make sure they work properly. If they like you it will be a somewhat good career. If you are not part of the management group prepare to be miserable !

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat all employees equally. Notice the employees working hard and that are not in the BIG boys club.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Myriad Genetics is a miserable place to work

    Scientist II (Former Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsSalt Lake City is a great place to live

    ConsNo career growth, Extremely slow promotion rate, promotions given on a 10% quota and tenure basis, not on merit. Management gives themselves 100 fold more stock options then mid level employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromotions should be given on merit. Stock options should be more equally distributed to employees to incentivize them to actually work. The atmosphere mgmt has created breeds laziness, distrust, and bitterness

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
