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

    Pros

    Fairly easy to get hired here, growing company so good job stability.

    Cons

    Since it's a growing company workload has GREATLY increased without any other compensation for the new workload, longer work hours than advertised, very little information is passed down to employees unless a mistake is made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There has been an increase in upper management communicating with workers but along with the workload increase for accessioners, there should be new schedule policies as well. Everyone who is an employee should have an operation email address for better communication of memos and SOP updates.

    Pros

    LabCorp can be all things to all people in the clinical lab industry. Fairly good benefits, good compensation package and reasonable performance expectations. Management quality varies by region; many are managers because they excelled in sales and wisely moved into operations. Not all of them should be managers because they are not team builders.

    Cons

    Beware third quarter each year, especially in sales. Regional middle management review their annual budget projections during this period. If there is some doubt the region will not make budget by year end, they look for places to cut overhead. If your sales are average or worse, or if your base salary is near the top of range for your position, you may be laid off without warning. This is timed so that the work you've booked for the year is essentially finished (October), thus your productivity is not missed thru the current budget year. Get copies of your review and an attorney if you're over 50 and have good reviews. Demand pro-rated commissions/bonus' through your termination date.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Counsel sales employees how important it is to consider career movement within the organization in addition to sales productivity. A moving target is harder to find than a sitting duck.

    Pros

    Best job & company I've ever worked for!!

    Cons

    A lot of times it's hard to get coverage when needing off due to shortage of "floaters".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more PRN,s to cover for full time workers to use our PBS time as needed.

    Pros

    Labcorp offers a great work environment. It is the best clinical reference laboratory in the world, and I am proud to work at a company that invest heavily in science and the latest technology. Employees are valued and respected.

    Cons

    The training for the sales team could be more extensive regarding information technology. Most of the I.T. issues that I've come across when dealing with customers have been learned on the go. I wish I knew more about interfaces so I could be a more valuable resource to the client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Thank you for encouraging me to persist in my efforts to correct problems. I have always felt as though I had a respected opinion.

    Pros

    Good for experience in the long run, a good job to get out of college or if you are just starting your career. Not as strict as other labs.

    Cons

    Pay is not very competitive, but good for little experience

    I have been working at LabCorp

    Pros

    Great job for those who love multi-tasking and independence. Quarterly bonuses for cash revenue collected. Pay is almost double of that of local hospital phlebotomists.

    Cons

    You only get phone calls or visits from Management when they need to reprimand you. You get talked to like a dog by patients at times yet are to kiss hind end. Management itself is clueless how to use the Phlebotomy/Accessioning equipment/programs. My team lead didn't even know how to delete a drop off. I had to show HER?! I'm in a rented space and forced to share lobby with physicians and their patients. No HIPAA in place for patients signing in on the desk in a public waiting room. No working refrigerator or microwave to use for my 30 minute lunch, had to buy my own. Forget about showing your patriotism or love for holidays as you're not allowed to wear anything but solid scrubs for fear of "offending" a non-believer. Forget about calling in sick as they don't have enough floats to work for you. If you do have a true emergency it still counts against your review.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why is a site with a single PST who sees over 500 patients a month in a crumbling, moldy building that hasn't been remodeled since it was built over 30 years ago? I make you enough revenue to have a free standing lab or at minimum a partition and private entrance into the building. You expect me to come to work happy to work my hind end off when I get a 1.5% annual raise and you in turn raise my insurance at least 3%? On top of that you only offer insurance plans who cover 80% of my cost? And HELLO, not everyone in the United States has a credit/debit card! Stop punishing your employees for what we have no control over! For God's sake make sure the floats actually know what they are doing. I am so sick of their 'I won't be here tomorrow, so let's half way do things' attitude.

    Pros

    No supervision if you like to sit at home all day.

    Cons

    No real metrics and they cheat you out of bonuses by way of charge backs for errors that you did not make. If a line worker breaks a tube, it comes out of your pocket.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tie efforts to outcomes and pay on UNITS SOLD.
