    Good position; terrible mgmt

    Project Analyst (Current Employee)
    Burlington, NC

    ProsJob is great and secure. Analysis is fulfilling. I feel I contribute greatly to the company with the work I perform. Those in mgmt who know what they're doing are actually really good ppl to work for. They possess leadership skills that others should follow.

    ConsPeople move up not by their skills but by who they know and their connections. There are lots of unqualified and incompetent people who I have no earthly idea how they even landed a job into the company. My only conclusion is it's who they know not what they know. With this setback I'm left working alongside some very unprofessional people who lack education and skills and knowledge who therefore finagle their way around until they deceive some unsuspecting manager who has no clue how to do their own job to begin with into hiring them into the department. Before I know it I'm surrounded by waves of idiots who are hired to do the same level job I do yet have no idea what they're doing. And we get paid the same. That's the most insulting part. Pay isn't up to par either. And annual raises are below par.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen pandimonium hits don't panic. More importantly don't react! Plan instead! Mgmt in the billing department react more than they plan. This leads to an unnecessary sense of panic and fear among your employees. Don't hire people just because you know them but hire people who are actually competent and possess enough intelligence to take initiative and get the job done right the first time. Perhaps if you hired people with higher education you would yield better quality results. Of course this would also mean paying better. At least you would get better output than the huge messes created in the billing department.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Work elsewhere

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
    Burlington, NC

    ProsSteady paycheck, benefits, decent pay, good training model

    ConsNo employee appreciation, out of touch management, very strict attendance policy, you work a lot of holidays (Christmas Eve included), not a lot of room for growth

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake employees feel that they are appreciated! That is the #1 reason I left. I wasn't allowed to participate in the one thing you do for your employees "Lab Week" because I was chained to my desk. I had to ask to go to the bathroom like a 5 year old. You treat Christmas Eve like any other work day when most companies give you the whole week off. I understand you work on a hospital schedule, but a thank you would have been nice.

    Virology Department

    Laboratory Technologist (Current Employee)
    Burlington, NC

    ProsLots of opportunities for overtime, small department so its easier to get your time off approved compared to bigger departments

    ConsPay is not competitive, no room to move up within the department, have to work lots of overtime during flu season and work weekends during the year so baylors can have days off, lots of drama between coworkers

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to learn skills for the future

    Laboratory Technologist (Current Employee)
    Burlington, NC

    ProsLabCorp gives plenty of time off. Starting off you receive 3 1/2 weeks of time off. They have excellent training to start your job off right.

    ConsIt is very difficult to get into leadership positions. There are very few and it take quite a bit of time. The health benefits and pay could also be better for the work that we do.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease consider giving your employees better compensation for the work they put in. Employees do not receive wages that reflect the skill, expertise, and work ethic that one must have in order perform on the job.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Going back to School to work elsewhere..where I'm appreciated!!!

    Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)
    Burlington, NC

    Prosjob security

    depends who you work under

    ConsManagement
    don't take employee seriously

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees when trying to give feedback on work process. The employees know what goes on a daily basis; get involved with your employees so you know what's going on half of the time, before barking orders behind a desk. KNOW what's going on in your department!!
