Great experience, not great benefits

Sample Management Lab Assistant (Former Employee) Portland, OR

Pros-I worked in Blood Services, and the NTL has a very close-knit culture. Most of the employees had moved up from entry-level positions and were there from 7-15 years. My department had a very easy-going boss who encouraged us to get to know each other, and make the most out of an other-wise tedious/boring position (lab assistant).
-The PTO is outstanding
-Internal committees/organizations help you feel more engaged
- job security

Cons-Too many audits. In my first two months, we had 4 internal/external routine audits.
-They are always making budget cuts, whether it is with coffee, staffing, or raises, everyone is always afraid to be cut
-Politics plays a huge part in who gets a promotion or not.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive the people on the bottom a little more money if you want to reduce turn-over. Or give them an incentive to stay.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
