    People on site are great to work with, but upper management is out of touch

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsEnjoy my colleagues, able to work with others to allow all to get time off as needed.

    ConsNo opportunity for advancement, salary not enough for cost of living, low merit increases

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management: Show that you care about the employees at individual sites. All it seems that is cared about is making money for yourselves while the rest of us do the hard work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Hey, it pays the bills.

    Site Coordinator (Current Employee)

    ProsHonestly, can't think of any. Its a job. The good thing, is that there's a lot of job security, being that there are opportunities in many states.

    ConsBenefits are costly and the health insurance is not great. Time off request policy is horrible! Never enough help. Very, very few opportunities for growth.

    Exhausting

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe benefits are great! best I've ever seen thus far!!

    ConsHigh school(ish) cliques. immaturity, Very difficult to advance. If you're not friends with the supervisor, then YOU ARE SCREWED. Been with the company 10 years. Im only a Team Leader, and I dont even make 30k a year! NEVER, EVER advance to this position, as you will only be seen as a "gopher".

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake time to visit your employees personally. Then you will be able to make better decisions, and not rely on what your "pet" tells you.

    A favorable experience, with an excellent staff.

    Phlebotomist (Former Employee) Long Beach, CA

    ProsThe environment was very clean and organized. Computer system operated extremely efficient with but one minor glitch during my externship. What really made my experience worth the distance I traveled was the experienced staff at the Patient Care Center in Long Beach. Very professional and polite that was only matched by their knowledge of their profession. I hope to work more with the caliber of Phlebotomist I had the privilege to work with in the future.

    ConsIn speaking with workers, promotion and recognition does not flow nearly in the manner a company that has such an intricate role in customer care and with the high level of accuracy and independence of this Patient Care Center.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe only advice I can offer is to show more appreciation for your employees, especially when they give you their best in way of professionalism and efficiency. A raise I understand has a lot to do with cost and operations. But quarterly incentives should be manageable along with gift cards and letters of recognition should reflect their excellent work and accuracy.

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

    Decent opportunity for advancement if non-union, but union environment can hinder professional growth.

    Anonymous (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsMost of the coworkers are friendly. They celebrate Lab professionals week well. If you work hard, you have to opportunity to be recognized with a company award.

    ConsUnion environment in Seattle causes major disconnect between workers/departments/managers. Some departments have very negative environments, while some are wonderful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize your workers more and make them feel appreciated more than just during the lab professionals week.
