    I have been working at Advocate Health Care

    Pros

    This is Advocate's central lab prosessing site in Rosemont called ACL Labs. The staff is very friendly and wonderful. The area is nice as well.

    Cons

    The work load is too much for the amount of Lab Techs to handle. Many times, overtime is needed to cover the work. Often times overtime is not approved, which forces you to skip your lunch and break in order to cover the work. They need to have more lab techs per shift to make it more manageable.

    Be more attentive to lower management assessments and critiques of their sometimes arrogant bosses who rule by fear.
