    Pros

    Pay is excellent. But if you're here for the money alone, don't bother. Benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    Management at Baldwin Park is horrible. All they care about is the lab's Turn Around Time (TAT). They want you to release results fast! But if by doing so, you accidentally release something that needed to be reviewed or further investigated, your ass will be in deep trouble. The management will not back you up. You're on your own. But if you take your time to carefully release results, they'll be on your ass for not doing it fast enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All of you (management) were at the bench once in your careers. Don't treat your CLSs like dogs. Moral couldn't be lower because it's to the ground already. Work is tough here at Baldwin Park. We care about the patients. We want enough time for us to release accurate and quality results. We care about the Turn Around Time too, but not at the cost of patient care.

    Pros

    Longevity is a plus in a large organization like this. Many employees transfer from one facility to another creating a network region wide of people who interact to resolve issues.

    Cons

    The union can sometimes provide protection of problem employees. Some actions or behaviors warrant a much more harsh action instead of second third and forth chances for the same infraction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach.
