    Overall good working environment

    Cons

    Confusing structure
    Past comp plan was difficult to understand
    Sometimes frustrating to see employees with poor performance numbers move up the ladder
    You definitely need a champion to get noticed for promotion

    Pros

    The people at the heart of the company (formerly Celera) are fantastic--from Mfg. to QC to Shipping, all great people. Work/Life balance is great.

    Cons

    Management does not share anything with employees until rumors have been swirling for so long that everyone is on edge. Ex: Berkeley Heart Lab is being axed from Quest--nobody knew. Vacation time is absolutely terrible--6 paid holidays? Who does that? Time clocks rounded to the minute? Absolutely demoralizing. I've heard similar things from others with Quest who work (or have worked) in Quest lab services. Definitely NOT one of the "best companies to work for." Steer clear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent with your employees. Show some trust and provide better benefits (6 days off per year? Really?)
