    Pros

    When I had the first phone interview, I am waiting my job visa. They employ me when I get the visa. Generally good experience. They do a good QC for all the reagent we used, that is responsible thing to do for the patient.

    Cons

    I don't like punch in/out system. I don't like write 15mins job report everyday. .Employees should be treated like a family and respect.

    Pros

    Stable job. Well run company, fiscally sound. Good benefits: Health care, dental care, vision, 401K, PTO policy, stock options, company car.

    Cons

    Money is more important than people. I've seen people let go for no other reason than to promote positive financials looking good at the end of the quarter. Consolidation of offices in many cities to large regional offices have left smaller offices a shell of what they were with many corporate functions such as HR and upper management access very difficult to use.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees as the most important company asset. Management could be better trained in personnel management techniques.

    Pros

    Great Company to work for. Decent benefits and time off starts at over 3 weeks for new employees.

    Cons

    Depending on department there can be quite a bit of overtime. Management is upfront about this in the interview process however, so there should be no surprises.

    I worked at LabCorp full-time

    Pros

    People are family there. I still miss the relationships I made. Benefits and time were are good.

    Cons

    Mid Level Management was not appreciated for the job they did. People felt overworked and underappreciated when they were giving all they had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Only hire the managers that can pass a personality test that reveal "people will want to work for you" I had two of them and never had a problem that I couldn't recover from with some redirecting.
    Also, get out there and get your hands dirty too. The clients love to see "big corporates guys mix with the little guy"
