    Treat good employees like garbage...completely disposable.

    I worked at EMSL Analytical full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I did get 2 promotions and fought for reasonable wages. Most are hourly employees so overtime is accrued. Vacation time was reasonable but in the smaller labs taking time off meant huge trouble for production.

    Cons

    Nepotism is the company moto. It took 2 years for the sample receiving area to get a hood for accepting asbestos samples. I watched lab techs work in unsafe conditions completely untrained with no qc being performed. Quality is not favored, it is all about quantity. Asbestos analysts were expected to analyze well over 125 samples per day.

    Benefits are deplorable.

    The HR manager just so happens to be married and related to all most of management so the is no safe haven for airing grievances.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop spreading yourselves so thin, stop growing and focus on getting it right. Invest in better equipment and most importantly training. I hate to be a pessimist but this will never happen.

    I worked at EMSL Analytical

    Pros

    It's a job, but only if you have no other options.

    Seems ok at first but you soon learn otherwise.

    Vacation is the only real benefit.

    Cons

    Low pay, long hours, no employee loyalty.

    Revolving door employment.

    The benefits are terrible, the health care is not affordable at the wages they pay.

    Can't hire any quality workers because the wages are too low. The good people you get don't stick around because they realize there are much better opportunities elsewhere.

    Upper management is made up of family and old friends. They often ignore unethical practices that take place in other EMSL locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect.

    You will probably save money if you paid better and kept good people around rather than re-training new employees every 6 months.

    The high pressure and "just get the work done" attitude does not work.
