Pros

Atherotech provides employment opportunities in a company which makes a real difference in people's lives through the provision of medical laboratory testing - strong emphasis on cardiovascular testing and patient support. The opportunities for learning never end, and the company has a strong record of promotion from within, overall. Still small enough to be appropriately reactive to industry needs and changes. The corporate culture still manages to be welcoming and pretty inclusive; there is still a somewhat familial sense of all of us being in this together. Good benefits, and an HR Department which is always looking for ways to keep improving the workplace as a whole.

Cons

We have grown very rapidly - which can be exciting, but sometimes the growth has the *feel* of tumultuous, almost out of control expansion. I suspect things are much more under control than they seem, though! There have been occasional lags as support staff catches up with sales, but that is pretty much a thing of the past. Occasionally, effective communications have suffered slightly as our numbers have grown - one segment of the company may not have as strong an understanding of new ventures as other segments may think they do. (Sort of the "I know all about this new test; therefore, everyone else must, too" mindset.) However, when this occurs it is generally corrected pretty rapidly, and I do feel everyone involved has the best of intentions - I don't think anyone is sitting on knowledge for power's sake, in other words.

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, holiday pay and overtime!

    Cons

    The turn over rate is absolutely ridiculous and there's NO ROOM TO GROW!!!!. And management will throw you under the bus to save themselves.
