    All in all a good company to get your foot in the door.

    Laboratory Technologist (Current Employee)
    Elmwood Park, NJ

    ProsExcellent 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.

    ConsPractically 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.

    An actually decent company, barring all the drama.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Elmwood Park, NJ

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsAs 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 Senior ManagementMore 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It was a very informative and educational experience working for this company.

    Service Representative (Former Employee)
    Elmwood Park, NJ

    ProsThey provide great health insurance with very good options. The overall experience they provide you with knowledge about the company and what they are expecting to accomplish in the future is a great optimistic boost for employees. It is an exciting and fast paced atmosphere

    ConsCommunication was sometimes lacking, and depending on who you worked with made a very big negative or positive impact on your daily motivation to work in that department.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to appreciate what employees do and how much effort they put in on a daily basis. Do not look at small mistakes as large dissatisfaction, but look at the overall experience and work ethic such employees provide for the company every single day.

    ProsGood Health Insurance
    Flexible schedule
    No experience neccesary to start

    ConsNo room for advancement if employee do not kiss the butt at their Managers.
    Senior employees are not considerer to get a Team Leader position.
    Managers has no have experience and skills to be

    Advice to Senior ManagementInstead to make team leaders to new employees without experience choose the correct ones who has been working at Bioreference for more than 10 years showing loyalty also, some Managers forgot to give a yearly raise to employees working there more than 9 years.
