Reactive company that does not live up to leadership promise.

I have been working at Myriad Genetics full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great work life balance. Amazing uncapped commissions if you stay ahead of the curve in managing your business

Cons

Very reactive organization. More and more like big pharma, vastly inconsistent in management expectations, must be part of "boys club" to move up. Lack of required skills and experience to succeed in many of the leaders in HQ

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your people are your greatest asset, figure out a way to have consistent measures of performance and business management. Your RDs don't have a clue what the definition of leadership is. They are glorified sales reps and analysts with a director title.

    I have been working at Myriad Genetics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Experience in healthcare which may prepare one for somewhere better down the road.

    Cons

    The workers are under-compensated and do not get enough credit for their work. They have demanding job duties and are often required to work overtime on weekends to meet deadlines so they can maintain Myriad's claim to fame: Their turnaround times.

    There many unethical business practices and politics of this company, which are not to be discussed, create an awkward "elephant in the room" among employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people and not machines. Reward them for hard work. Your profit is heavily dependent on their happiness and motivation.

    I have been working at Myriad Genetics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Full-time employees are immediately given all the same benefits as long standing employees.
    Alternative work schedules
    Great People

    Cons

    The development pathway for the main lab is murky at best.
    Production expectations seem to be out of touch

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come down to the labs and get a real feel for the workflow before establishing expected outcomes.
