    Pros

    I did the late night shift, the money was good, management didn't take much time to hire more people to meet the high workload.

    Cons

    It's a part time job, it's not meant to be a career but my colleague was able to get promoted to management within 3 years of full-time employment so it wasn't a dead end.

    Pros

    Excellent place to obtain clinical laboratory experience. The salary is below most other clinical labs. The management has regressed.

    Cons

    Not a good establishment to retire, no bonuses or incentives. Insurance coverage could use a major overhaul .

    Advice to Management

    Lab Corp had just begun to show diversity in management in 2014. Personally there is still a unbalance of diversity in top corporate white collar personnel.

    Pros

    Work-life benefits are amazing. Direct (middle) management is efficient and knowledgeable and helpful. Dont see a lot of senior management. Great job for college grads to get their feet wet. Company culture is great and supportive. HR dept rocks (seriously). Lots of PTO. Some of the staff in leadership positions started in a site support role so although the role has changed quite a bit they are aware of daily frustrations which is helpful.

    Cons

    Salary is less than desirable. Insignificant raises. No real opportunity for growth. Systems and processes need major updates. High turn over. No really electronic data filing system (in 2015 paper is still used ALOT and it is so wasteful). But again good start up job.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the hiring process and the training process. Hire more people to absorb the workload.

    Pros

    Good place to gain exposure to a variety of technology, quality programs, and operations. A good starting place to learn one or a select number of specialised skills. A good entry level company.

    Cons

    Limited career growth potential. No cross-disciplinary training, role expansion or career advancement preparation supported or provided. You will likely be doing the same job in 5- 7 years as you started with, use that time to acquire ASCP certification or other complimentary certifications that can be applied to other companies/ or healthsystems.

    Pros

    Great team atmosphere, Management was effective and promoted an efficient working ecosystem, The work was fast paced and interesting, Always had something to learn

    Cons

    Pay was lower than industry average, Poor flexibility for taking time off around holidays, Wasn't offered clear incentives for staying with the company for longer than 3 years

    Advice to Management

    Communicating with management was always easy to do and I rarely felt uncomfortable expressing concerns or complaints, the only advice would be to delineate some of the responsibilities given to the supervisors so they had more time to interact with team members

    Pros

    Supervisors and engineers are good, caring people, all of them very sharp and care about doing a great job.

    Cons

    Management and directors are demanding, callous and only care about maximizing profits. Layoffs continue every year in spite of growing profits. Many people work 60-hour weeks nearly all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like humans, not replaceable office equipment. Hire enough to make 40 hour weeks the norm.
