    I worked at Hunter Laboratories full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The lab is very small compared to other high volume labs, but since there are not a lot of people, I was able to learn a lot about the lab environment and worked independently.

    Cons

    Upper management didn't truly understand the workflow sometimes. I wish they were more involved with the people actually in the lab and not just the managers. Also no 401k.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to be more involved with the actual lab to understand workflow better.

    Pros

    Great client services, loyal sales reps, convenient and no wait for blood draw AND fast turn around time
    We meet the needs of all clients, never missing a phone call or opportunity to speak with them.

    Cons

    The company has big competitors who are national but our service is much more efficient and better quality. I wish there were more patient service center locations.

    I have been working at Hunter Laboratories

    Pros

    The best reasons are: The freedom to be creative and insure quality care to all patients that come to Hunter. The employees have direct access to the CEO Chris Reidel and the President Marcia Reidel who listen and respond quickly to create a very supportive work place.

    Cons

    Just as there are problems in every company, I would have to say a downside to working at Hunter would be: The need for a bigger building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always be involved in the decisions that are made on your behalf. These decisions good or bad will directly reflect on you.

    Pros

    a mediocore paycheck, a job

    Cons

    When you enter the company, since it is family owned, you have a sense that you have direct contact with senior management. But as time passes, the only contact you have is a high level of micromangement. Therefore, more time is spent finger pointing than actually resolving issues to make the company run smoother.
    Other issues:
    needs to spend money on the IT department (very old computer system)
    high employee turnover
    no true training program in place
    poor management
    poor benefit package (No 401K)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    have a training program all departments in the company, stop the micro- management
