    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Quest Diagnostics full-time

    Pros

    Made great friends, great direct supervisor, easy to get good at your job with continuous dedication and practice.

    Cons

    Top management is not as supportive as they could be, preventable long hours because of some employees who do not do their work.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to give problem employees some disciplinary actions, not wait until a year later when everybody else in the department is fed up.

    Pros

    I enjoyed working for Quest Diagnostics. I felt the pay and PTO were great.

    Cons

    Plans change from what you were originally hired to do, sometimes it makes a difference in future.
