    Current Employee - Manager in Rancho Bernardo, CA

    I have been working at Millennium Health

    Pros

    - Upper management is approachable, and willing to work with you to make your day to day work life as best as it can be.
    - they have monthly 'events' where they feed everyone, there's music (Live harpists, live DJs etc.) and always go out of the way to have "Employee Appreciation Days" (=Free lunch and a break!).
    - Salaries are competitive
    - For full time, salaried employees, time is super flexible, my boss is amazing at understanding that we are all human.
    - Executives have consistent meetings where they address concerns and want to become 'the best place to work at in San Diego'. They are diligently working to make volunteer turnover decrease.
    - Did I mention they pay for ALL your benefits? Yeah, they don't take a single dollar from your check to pay your benefits, and they also give you ~$100 per month for your HSA. Oh! And they contribute to your 401K even if you don't. Boom.

    Cons

    - People complaning (I know a couple) were either terminated for incompetency after being here since the beginning of the company and not being able to adapt to the growth and change of the company going from 60 employees to 600.
    - The company grew SO QUICKLY it has a ton of growing pains, like any other organization, there's constant change, so I definitely don't recommend this company to someone who is used to doing the same thing over and over, and someone who isn't open to change, and consistent efforts to make your everyday more efficient.
    - Although Mr. Slattery is no longer on campus all the time, he is still very involved in creating the familiar feel of the company, and the executives are well aware of this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up! It's been an adjustment period for everyone, but overall, the changes are for the good of the whole, and there's bound to be some outsiders that aren't flexible, or adaptable enough to grow with Millennium.
    Executives came in as little as a year ago, and with new blood, there's always old blood that doesn't like the change, those are the employees that (in my opinion) keep complaining that they are 'replaceable'
    Dude: Make yourself irreplaceable at your job by doing it well.

    Pros

    Used to be a fun place to work. Supervisors came in and changed the morale.

    Cons

    Used to get pay raises, now bonuses if the company does well. The upper Management changed the family feeling that Mr. Slattery created.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat current employee as good as the new ones!!!

    "Specimen Accessioner" The ABSOLUTE WORST JOB I have EVER (/will ever have) in my entire life.

    Former Employee - Specimen Accessioner in Rancho Bernardo, CA
    Former Employee - Specimen Accessioner in Rancho Bernardo, CA

    I worked at Millennium Health part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Pros....I agreed with their mission statement on a personal level at first. Feeling slightly special because you work in a "business casual" (enforced dress code) environment. You get a lab coat with your name on it (which is easily stripped and not yours to keep). They have different sized gloves? OH boy and the extra exclusive lanyard to allow you into the building.... no pros to this job.

    Cons

    You are a work-horse expected to: get up, dress up, show up, and shut up. If you happen to get sick within your first 90 days....see ya later. Not to mention you're "observed" by management/administration who treats you like a guinea pig when they enforce trying different "more efficient ways" of opening a box. You will start the day by finding parking (depending on if you've found it easily or not) you will continue to run and or sprint to the nearest opening and "lanyard ID" yourself into the building, next you will (try to catch your breath and act calm) to line up behind your coworkers and clock-in. There's around 100 people clocking in on 1-2 computers so it's a guarantee you will sign in a few minutes late despite your presence. Oh yes this is the best part; they will nickel and dime you for those minutes. You will be paid/quarter of a minute depending on your computer clock-in/out activity. THIS JOB = CARPAL TUNNEL, I could warn you about the people to watch out for/compete with; however they have either been fired or will be out on worker's comp. Needless to say my opinion of Millennium Labs is lower than scam artists in Asia trying to steal your money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micromanaging and let employees find a personal way of doing things efficiently. The discouraging "getting sick within 90-days" and you're fired policy would literally stress any new worker to get sick. Nobody can control when they get sick. Have more positive comments/compliments, maybe even a reward system, if you did (which you definitely never have) what a specimen accessioner does, you would want some hope or reward system to continue doing the job.

    Compensation is terrible; nickel and diming employees who are waiting in line to clock in needs to be changed. If you check to see which employee is checking in or out of the facility why can't that be considered the clock-in? Seems like an easy way to rob people of their time, money, and peace of mind.

    I worked at Millennium Health part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    They pay reasonably well for the unskilled labor that goes on in the Data Entry Department, and many of the people I worked with were a pleasure to be around.

    Cons

    New hires told that there are numerous opportunities for promotion, but the company seems to go out of its way to prevent internal hiring.
    Management demanded complete flexibility in the employees’ schedules, but were unwilling to accommodate scheduling needs of employees.
    They hire some good people, but most of them are constantly looking for an escape.
    Generally poor communication of what was going on in the company to low level employees.
    Bad morale rampant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The data entry department is by necessity a large group of poorly paid people doing unskilled manual labor. Such a group is obviously difficult to keep motivated. Certain moves by the management such as capricious schedule changes, false promises of advancement, and a nonsensical insistence that “Millennium is a great place to work” are not things that improve morale.

    I worked at Millennium Health full-time

    Pros

    -The people are always friendly and willing to help if you have a question, although be careful whom you confide in because word tends to travel quickly and can get to wrong people.

    -Trainers are highly knowledgeable and very patient

    -Decent pay

    Cons

    -Lack of respect. Management thinks of the employees as children and call us that to our faces but yet they don’t understand why the employees don’t respect them…

    -Workload. If you work mornings, be prepared to be expected to do double the amount of work than your evening counterparts. Alternative is to work nights.

    -The supervisors are in a "do as I say" mentality and you should never question their requests.

    -Lack of communication. Management tends to not tell their employees about changes in processes and expects everyone to find out somehow and put it into practice. One day you'll be expected to do something one way and the next day its not how things are done anymore. Then the following day, it’s back to the original way of doing things. Be sure to get any new instructions in writing as proof just in case they try to say that you didn't understand.

    -No more fun. This company used to have the best holiday party but that has fallen by the wayside for unknown reasons. Also, they used to celebrate birthdays as well as baby showers, engagements, and even when an employee decides to leave the company. Now celebrations are frowned upon because it takes away time from work.

    -No performance evaluation. For the past years, the supervisors have not given any feedback on performance. No performance evaluation = no raises.

    -"If you don't like it, I can easily replace you"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower your unrealistic expectations of what you think your employees are capable of. Remember that they are not machines, but people who have limits and feelings too. If they keep getting pushed to the limit, they will eventually break down both mentally and physically. Trust that your employees will get the job done without having to monitor them every second of the day.
