    now a part of Myriad Genetics so the company has deeper pockets, people are good to work with, fantastic product

    could use a little more internal organization, but that is changing quickly with the acquisition

    Pros

    Generous compensation overall. If you are lucky enough to be in one of the few groups with a good leader you will probably thrive. Sales will be pleased by the relative freedom, lack of reporting, and opportunity to contribute to future direction.

    Cons

    Poor leadership and decision making process. Many unhappy employees throughout, many of whom are looking for new jobs now that Myriad acquisition has gone through. Expect a lot of turnover in the next 6 - 12 months. Seemingly low accountability for under performing people in several senior level positions.

    Treat employee as huamn being

    Pros

    Many very gifted and kind individuals at this company.

    Cons

    In the lab you will find unstable and unprofessional behaviors such as throwing tantrums when they can't have their way. Ignorance about statistics and how to create a Quality Assurance System. Hiding behind hording all the knowledge of the QC system in order to keep others from finding their mistakes. Is threatened by anyone who has better ideas. Shockingly gets away with back stabbing polarizing behaviors. Clueless about laboratory regulations and has the company at a liability risk due to it. Manipulating upper management to allow liabilities due to their lack of understanding of laboratory regulations. Will steal your ideas and claim them as if they were their own. Revolving door of Laboratory Supervisors due to the unstable behaviors.

    Advice to Management

    Is it really worth the risk?

    Pros

    This is one of the friendliest companies I've ever worked at. There's a lot of work to be done, but there's a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Not as much room for advancement as I thought there was when starting.

    Pros

    nice view of bay, good coworkers, friendly environment

    Cons

    very apparent favoritism for sales and marketing departments. Other departments hear about dinners, salaries and really they have unlimited funds. Non glamorous department personnel don't have any of the perks like catered lunches. Everyone else gets to pass by meetings and smell the food.

    Advice to Management

    Other departments are the skeleton that supports all your studies that marketing gets to brag about. Recognize all teams.
