Pros

This is a good company to begin your career because of its good track record. The base salary is amongst the best compared to many other commercial and hospital laboratories' starting pay. The health benefits are decent especially if you have a family.

Cons

The management style and methodology does need improvements. The list of mandatory training and courses also need to be modified to better accompany each department.

Advice to Management

Please consider executing positive reinforcements in order to reduce errors and improve dynamics in the work environment.

    Sonora Quest over-promises and under-delivers.

    Pros

    Sonora Quest is a large company that has had minimal layoffs during the recession. There is a strong amount of job security for most positions.

    Cons

    This company represents an "old-boys" club. There are only two women in the upper-most level of management (out of 14 positions). All but two departments within the company are lead by men. Women are largely under-represented in all management levels. This is reprehensible given that over 60% of employees are women. It is almost impossible to move up in this company as a female employee. Also, in the past few years employee compensation packages have been severely reduced, while the management teams still receive their annual bonuses. The company places a large focus on the results of the annual "employee satisfaction survey" and being one of the "best places to work" in Arizona, but does little other than issue company memos to employees when results are less than favorable.

    Pros

    If you're a poor employee, you'll have a job there forever. It doesn't matter how much your co-workers make an official complaint.

    Cons

    They pretend to be giving you a raise and a promotion with a new "title" and little pay raise but in reality they are just saying a lot of money by always sending hourly workers home right and their forty hours and keeping except employees for fourteen hours extra every week for you to finish the work yourself. Yet they promote team work?? Please!

    Advice to Management

    Quit being politicians. All the good qualities you claim to be that you advertise, none of your phlebotomists agree with it. I bet the senior leadership group loves it though. Maybe you should take a reality look at the bottom of your food chain.
