I worked at Quest Diagnostics full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Competitive 401k plan, yearly profit sharing.

Cons

Toxic environment; nearly entire IT infrastructure outsourced.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop looking to save a 'penny per share' here and there via outsourcing, etc. Instead, empower your employees with the tools and resources needed to grow the bottom line organically.

    I have been working at Quest Diagnostics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Yearly bonus depending on how well the company does
    Good benefits
    Company seems to care about its employees

    Cons

    High stress environment
    Too many ways to get in trouble
    Pay does not match level of responsibility
    Management allows some of the "favorites" to get away with things that would get others in trouble

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Base pay of specimen processors definitely needs to be increased, the pay is not worth the stress. I get that the processors need to be pushed in order to meet production, but either take away some of the duties and/or responsibilities and divide them out to other departments, or increase the pay to justify all of the required duties. Also, there is clear favoritism going on within the department. Some employees are able to bend the rules to their advantage and play on the friendship with management to get their way over others.

    Pros

    Everyone is pretty much in the same boat.

    Cons

    There's not a lot of room for growth. They're trying but I don't see it progressing much further than it has because it's not sustainable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand we're people and you are too.
