    I have been working at Myriad Genetics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits Friendly people Beautiful location Close to downtown Clean break rooms and bathrooms Good workout facility with showers Lots of different shifts (day, swing & night) throughout the week.

    Cons

    Could pay more Weird culture of outlasting everyone and making the right friends for advancement. Being towards the end of the line, you feel ignored and look past at times. Never ask for input from techs.

    Advice to Management

    Quit giving big raises to VPs and other higher ups, and distribute it to those that need it most.


  3. Good experience as long as you don't get stuck.

    Pros

    Great benefits Good people Good place to work right out of college to gain work experience to help get your next job

    Cons

    No room to move up as a lab tech They don't care about keeping you until you quit Experience > competency Traffic on foothill

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within! Some of the lab techs really know what they're doing and love this company. There is some good talent that is moving elsewhere because you want 5 years in the lab before you'll consider someone for a better job.

    I worked at Myriad Genetics full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, good products that help people

    Cons

    must be part of the "in" group to advance. If you were part of that "in" group you would advance fast and far in the company. If you were not, you eventually got pushed out. Hired non- marketing people to run marketing departments, with no understanding of how marketing works. Heavy workloads contribute to the lack of work/life balance at least for the minions, management is constantly on trips/ vacations while others are working hard to make them look good.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites! Recognize good work and reward it. Stop giving your friends promotions and raises and hire people who actually know what they are doing!

    I have been working at Myriad Genetics full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I like my coworkers very much. They are good people and very good at their jobs. Company takes care of their sales people. Expectations of them are usually unrealistic but they continue work and perform well. 12 paid holidays, decent benefits (better than average).

    Cons

    Management is losing touch with employees. They have many good employees that have been promoted beyond their competency. Company is becoming more and more sales focused. It used to be a very employee friendly environment but that has changed a great deal in the eight years I have worked here.

    Advice to Management

    Business model seems very old-school. Need to modernize their time-off and work from home policies.

    I have been working at Myriad Genetics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Time off is stellar 3 1/2 weeks vacation and 12 holidays. Stock options and decent healthcare is available. Training is 3 weeks in Utah. Will utilize Insights during training.

    Cons

    If you don't have a background at Eli Lilly, you will have a difficult time advancing. They do not provide any management training so they manage with "carrots and sticks". They offer a variety of personality assessment tests but the tests are never used by management to motivate.

    Advice to Management

    You have great talent but you should consider letting individuals return if they leave to better your insight into the industry as most Fortune 500 companies do.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, good hours, the company itself does a good thing for society

    Cons

    I was told upon being hired that I could move up/move to the Marketing Department after 9 months if they happened to be hiring in Marketing at that time. I took this job basically right out of college with little real world experience, but needed the money, so I shot my chances of getting Marketing experience with the hopes I could transfer after 9 months. 2 years later, HR offers no real help other than to "keep checking the job postings" and does not hire Marketing employees from within. They hire Marketing people with experience. I basically need to start over so I can get on a career path that doesn't limit me to $35 K a year and is actually in the field I want to go into.

    Advice to Management

    Actually engage with your employees who are looking to build a career with Myriad. I don't want to leave, but you forced me out. I was overqualified when you hired me, you should have just been straight with me and told me that I can't move up without real-world experience, and that my qualifications alone wouldn't be enough for me to move up.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    It 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.
