    Pros

    Nice work area. Excellent learning environment. Coworkers are friendly and helpful. Highly diverse backgrounds of coworkers promote learning and resourcefulness.

    Cons

    Long time employees/management resistant to change. Computers and other technology very dated and difficult to use. More of a push for volume rather than quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please provide better more consistent training in all areas of the company.

    I worked at LabCorp full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pretty good place to work. I'd just moved to NC, so it was my first job in the area. The company went through re-orgs frequently. Ended up being laid off, but severance package was pretty good.

    Cons

    My boss was kind of a tool. Lot of politics. Not a place to grow if you are looking for that type of thing. If you are working on the lab side, the work is pretty solid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a publicly traded company, so nothing to really say as far as advice goes. Should pay attention to more employee ideas than stressing them out over political policies.

    Great benefits along with plenty of overtime opportunities. Great company. Always busy and time flew by. Management was awesome as well. I would work for them again in a heartbeat.

    There were no cons. I really enjoyed the company and management.

    I have been working at LabCorp full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Labcorp is a stable company in terms of job security. The people I work with at Labcorp are great as well.

    Cons

    There is almost no opportunity for advancement, and there is very little open communication between upper management and the sales division.

  8. A good lesson in what I absolutely do not want to do with my career.

    Current Employee - Cytogenetic Technologist I in Research Triangle Park, NC

    I have been working at LabCorp full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The team all were in it together so we did work well together and we were able to support each other.

    It was a job that paid the bills for a time until I could find something I really wanted to move on to.

    Cons

    There is very little chance for advancement opportunities. Most are through tests that must be studied for. However these tests cover a broad range of topics most of which you will never get exposure on the job because it covers the work that at least three departments do, but you'll only ever do a lot of lab work for one.

    A large problem is the amount of cases that the corporate offices wanted us to complete and what was actually possible to complete. We would regularly get six "extended hours" meaning we were required to come in for overtime or face being written up. This wouldn't have been so bad, but there was never an end to it in sight. It would stress out the technicians which would in turn stress out our supervisor and honestly created a very ugly working environment till my end of employment there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to understand that with he amount of time it takes to train a technician to read cases, the bleak outlook for any advancement, meager pay, and the lack of on the job learning this job is going to always have a high turnover rate until at least a couple of these factors are solved.

    I worked at LabCorp

    Pros

    Very large organization with opportunities to work on many different types of projects. The company pays on par with other companies in the market.

    Cons

    Struggles with some old school management styles. The message from the top is delivered through annual reports - not via company town halls or other means of communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes meeting a budget should come secondary to doing the right thing. If people are burning out, get them help! If people are not happy, do what you can to help them - they will stay and be productive employees.
