    I have been working at Bostwick Laboratories full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The great pay and the ability to truly run your own business. Great products and excellent pathology.

    Cons

    Management calling audibles at the line and telling nobody. Constant shifting of commission structure and renigging on pay. Clueless "Middle" management. No one taking accountability for errors and pointing fingers at others. Closure of labs and minimalist approach for the few with no regard for the masses in other locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the growth vs the stagnation. Fix the problems and move forward. Do not limit yourself to one location. The government has changed the playing field and now we need to leaarn to play a different game.

    I worked at Bostwick Laboratories full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Learning how to deal with the darker side of politics.
    General training.
    Character development.

    Cons

    The general lack of values, respect, integrity, effective communication and general professionalism make it extremely difficult to come to work and simply do your job. If you don't mind being a politician all day, constantly checking and re-checking other people's work, playing blame games and looking over your shoulder then this place is for you.

    A lot of newly enacted policies tend to be done by word of mouth and leave too many points open to interpretation.

    Three rounds of 10-20 employee layoffs in 1 1/2 years, locations being shut down and distrust of management/leadership positions do not promote a positive work environment. When layoffs are made, they tend to cut people who have been with the company the longest and/or have given the most.

    People who are clear leaders and have been with the company for 5+ years are in the same positions they started in, so the opportunity for growth and advancement are slim.

    Newly enacted health care reform laws are making testing more expensive so the future for the industry does not look bright.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up.

    I worked at Bostwick Laboratories full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A wonderful opportunity to work with very smart and hard working people, from all strata of work, from a mail clerk, to the medical COO. Also, I had an opportunity to broaden my learning horizons by attending seminars, and so on.

    Cons

    It seemed like that there was no appreciation for all the hard work that was invested by all the smart heads. When the lab crew was told that "there might be closing of the lab", no one really believed in that, because that lab was a money maker, so it seemed illogical. But it did happen, and a whole bunch of people ended up either without a job, or being moved to clerical positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish you would bring back the momentum back where the brainpower ruled. I am afraid it might be too late for that. I don't think I would like to work again there.
