I have been working at Myriad Genetics

Pros

Great industry to be in and the work Myriad does is very beneficial to the community and people we serve. Myriad is a very innovative company that has a lot of potential. Benefits are okay and stock is a great incentive if you stay long term. Friendly environment and good people trying to make a difference.

Cons

Mediocre pay unless you are in upper management. Salaries seem very top heavy as do the rewards, recognition and incentives. Company is VERY profitable yet they fail to recognize the employees for the work they do that has contributed to the success. Very poor morale in the laboratories and other areas mainly due to poor pay. No room for growth but if you are lucky enough to be promoted don't bank on a much of an increase in pay; just more work and responsibility without recognition or incentives. A very life/energy sucking career.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize your employees and treat them as though you value them. Do not gloat about our record profits while continuing to pay poorly. Recognize talent and reward accordingly in hopes of retaining talent and boosting poor morale of employees.

    Pros

    Good pay, Industry Recognition in Women's Health

    Cons

    IT groups are very fragmented, A bit to much head strong personalities, Middle Management is hit and mis depending on who your working for. Technologies are reasonable but as a small company limited on spending

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work more on cross teaming culture

    I worked at Myriad Genetics

    Pros

    Salt Lake City is a great place to live

    Cons

    No career growth, Extremely slow promotion rate, promotions given on a 10% quota and tenure basis, not on merit. Management gives themselves 100 fold more stock options then mid level employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions should be given on merit. Stock options should be more equally distributed to employees to incentivize them to actually work. The atmosphere mgmt has created breeds laziness, distrust, and bitterness
