    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Excellent salary and benefits. 401k company match 100% up to 6%. 15% of hourly wage for third shift. Good health benefits. Yearly bonus based on gross salary tied to company profits. Yearly health fair, free for employee & spouse, deduction from your bi-weekly health payments if you maintain certain health criteria. 8 weeks of vacation per year.

    Cons

    Laboratory in Michigan going through major downsizing due to work being sent to Chicago. Large staff reduction that has been going on for the last 2 years, skeleton staff left in lab that will probably be closing.

    Advice to Management

    Processing managment did not know how to do the jobs that they managed. Never received any support. While lab has been downsizing, they will not share any company information with the department. I was severed with no notice even after being told we would receive 2 weeks notice.

    Pros

    They had great benefits until Obama Care. Vacation time was very liberal and they match 5% for 401k. I enjoyed the people I worked with.

    Cons

    After Rusckowski took over as CEO it became so difficult to work there he decided to go to a regional lab concept and reduced the work force in a lot of cities. It is so" Money Centered" that the patients and employees don't matter anymore. We were walking on eggshells not knowing who was going to get cut next. The regional labs are so overwhelmed that they can't keep up with the demand.

    Advice to Management

    "You don't build a business you build People and then the People build the business". This has been on a steady decline. Value your employees and treat them better than just a number for the all mighty dollar. Remember we are people too. Patients are suffering because employees don't care anymore.
