    Great work life Balance and Benefits

    Account Executive (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat Benefits, good products and ability to make great commissions.

    ConsIt appears to be a lot of favoritism. Not always based on how well you do but rather who you know to advance. Some people are penalized even if they are achieving sales growth while others who are not achieving sales growth are rewarded. This is a sales company and the more you sell should be the focus!!!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the employees and don't lose site of the big picture.

    Set you up for failure and lots of yawning

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere are smart people work here

    ConsNo one cares to bring you up to speed, eventually setting you up for failure. It's impossible to take initiative in anything because there is no creativity here. Management goes through the motions, but could care less about you as a person. Everything feels so shallow and unimportant. Feels like everyone hates their job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't set people up for failure who would have otherwise been great assets. Get to know your employees more. Seem like you are happy to be here.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Really Good

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsThe people there are nice and fun to work with. There is lots of room for growth. They are hands on with training and try to make sure you know as much as you possibly can before they put you on the computers. Benefits are great. Stalk options.

    ConsThey are stingy with raises. There are metrics for raises and the raises aren't that great, and they are only every quarter. You have to be in a position for 9 months before you can move to a new position.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't micro manage. Not many of them do. Try to help your team, or someone on your team grow to a manager if that's what the eventually want to do.

    If no desire to move up, would be satisfied

    Data Technician (Current Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsSurrounded by well established, and highly educated professionals. Great coworkers, decent benefits, and decent pay considering job responsibilities.

    ConsVery difficult to move up career ladder. Management plays "favorites" and depending on which department you begin in can "make or break" you in your desire for advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore opportunities to move across departments or upward mobility. Treating all employees equally.

    Good Luck

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsMost people are hardworking and treat each other fairly. Pay and benefits are very good.

    ConsIt is all about performance, if you get it done, you can treat people as poorly as you want, especially if you are in management. Most are fair, a few are way out there.

    Great Idea Bad Exicution

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsMyriad is patient centered company where they really do try to make sure that they are giving the best product that they can.

    ConsLack of advancement and work/life balance for all. If you are an upper level employee Manager and above then you have it good. If you are below that level you are often at the whim of those above you. Mandatory OT and hiring Temps all the time rather than proper staffing so people can take time off. Almost never promotes from within unless you are a favorite. The revolving door of upper level managers Directors and VP's that are higher from outside that stay just long enough to find something better or send there time alienating other employees that have been here and know how to do there Jobs. Company Culture is all about making a buck as cheap as possible end of quarters usually end with holding back samples so that we don't out do what wall street wants. I would have left if I did not care about the patients and the economy was better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on internal development of employees they will stay longer and be happier also stop playing favorites. Peters principle is definitely in effect here. I know I am tired of being treated like a Mushroom if you know what I mean. Clear leadership from Pete M. and Mark C would be nice as well. MBOs would be great if they were based on something other then getting my VP there raise for the year while I see mine shrink every year as profits go up.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Overall, I was pleased with my time there and opportunities for advancement.

    Scientist II (Former Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsWork/life balance and smart people.

    ConsLow pay, distant and out of touch executives

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop objective measures of performance, de-emphasize the boys' club.

    Super Repetitive

    Laboratory Technician I (Current Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsGood work life balance. Typically work 3 12hr shifts or 4 10hr shifts. Very easy job. Super repetitive.

    ConsSuper repetitive, gets boring after a while. Supervisors are not afraid to tell you who there favorite is and treat others unfairly. Other technicians are very clique-y; almost feels like being in high school again.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more professional.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
