    I worked at Genzyme Genetics full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities for advancement, management listens to employees and cares about them. Employees are dedicated and focus on providing the best patient care possible. Benefits package is probably the best in the industry.

    Cons

    Work hours generally include early or late shifts and weekend work.

    I worked at Genzyme Genetics full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I always loved this company. Good benefits, paid vacation, sick , 401(k), good employees, hard workers.

    Cons

    Very little room for advancement, micromanagement, its who you know not what you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people with ideas help change what could help processes. Better work-life balance. Overtime always a problem. The same people always doing it and the same people always complaining why they cant. Manangement never rewards people who ACTUALLY do the work. Just the ones with titles regardless of what they do.

    I worked at Genzyme Genetics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Genzyme Genetics was a wonderful company as a whole.

    Cons

    The senior techs that worked at Genzyme Orange, CA, especially the older women, are morons with HUGE egos! I worked with some that acted like they knew everything and made big mistakes to the point of miss analyzing cases and led to failures in the lab. Genzyme Orange techs are definitely NOT as well trained as techs that came from some other Genzyme locations! Just because someone has 20 years experience in the field, does NOT mean that they are competent; hiring managers tend to make that mistake.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because someone has many years experience, really test their knowledge before hiring or closely observe and note how many mistakes they make and if their egos are getting in the way of a harmonious working environment. Older women (45+) usually have mental issues!

    I have been working at Genzyme Genetics

    Pros

    Many of my coworkers are really great people. I like the work that I perform and the challenges it brings to provide patients with their results.

    Cons

    very little concern with patient care and quality. No flexibility with schedules or personal needs. You have to be very fake and kiss up to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees, they aren't there just to be problems to squash. Try not to talk to us like we are indigent children.
