I worked at Myriad Genetics

Pros

The compensation and benefits offered at this company were terrific, especially for Salt Lake City. In a city with average low salaries, Myriad Genetics is a breath of fresh air. Time off was always granted for certain circumstances. Generally the people working here are fun and enjoyable people.

Cons

Management is horrible. Despite reporting record profits each year with the sound of a trump, there minimal, if any, raises or promotions within. The management never awards the hard working people, but always the brown-nosers that don't do much of anything. Teamwork is a must, but almost always, somebody drops the ball.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Award the hard workers. Take a close look at those in leadership positions and evaluate them based on their work quality. You will find that the majority of management is poor and unqualified personnel. Make those who make you rich happy, and they will be happy to work for you. Work morale is horrible and many people dread coming to work and dealing with their supervisors.

    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.
