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

    Pros

    Typically a lot of opportunity for overtime! I have worked here for over a year and have been able to pick up a lot of overtime hours (not typically mandatory though). Many great people work here and overall an enjoyable place to work.

    Cons

    Moral recently has been lower than normal due to HR trying to "clean house." Some terminations of employers have been understandable, while others seem a little more outrageous. Regardless, this has many employees on edge and worried about the security of their position.

    And I hope you like Golden Coral because there are no fancy holiday parties here like there used to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lightly up a little on nit-picking the time management of your employees, especially those who are paid hourly. We have to work 40 hours a week regardless of when we clock in and out, and many of us will complete the same amount of work whether we take a 14 minute break or 16 minute break, or take more than 2 minutes to get from the door to our lab. I know that there are some employees who have pushed the limit to the extreme, but don't come down on every employee, especially those who already try to be conscience and aware of the "rules". Being a little more relaxed and understanding will cause less frustration among your employees and boost the overall moral, which in turn will actually encourage your employees to work harder and care even more about the work they do because they wont feel under-appreciated.

    Pros

    Very good leadership!
    Knowledgeable and Friendly co workers
    Good pay and benefits packages
    Many locations in Austin and surrounding areas

    Cons

    Shortage of phlebotomists. This makes scheduling difficult. But this isn't LabCorp's fault. There is usually a shortage in the field anyway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never stop treating your employees like people. Best company I ever worked for. Perhaps more recruiting to help with the tight scheduling due to understaffing.
