      Pros

      Exiting area of diagnostics with best products compared to others. Leadership is transparent and has done a great job adapting as the landscape has changed dramatically over the last few years. CEO and team they brought together are organized and really talented. Huge improvement from before being acquired.

      Cons

      Resources limited to work on new projects. New product development slow compared to others. Timing of Konica Minolta related initiatives unclear

      COVID colored glasses

      Pros

      Ambry is a really great company to work for the they really try to help the customer with the potentially hefty price tag of genetic testing. Some of the managers and staff are more than willing to help if you need it. The benefits provided by the company are fantastic.

      Cons

      Working at Ambry during COVID has been incredibly trying. There is an incredible lack in communication between a manager in PFS dept and everyone else working there. The training's they have a 30-45 minute walkthroughs that barely cover the job that is being asked of the employees. Also throughout the entire year I personally have had 3 meetings with my supervisor about how I am performing each has been more disappointing and lacking than the last. I would like to give Ambry the benefit of the doubt and say that COVID has caused most of these problems but from what I have heard a very specific manager is to blame for most of them.

      Pros

      Ambry has a nice laboratory work environment with many friendly and fun people to work with. The workload is manageable compared to other laboratories.

      Cons

      Pay for CLSs is not comptitive, many employees are leaving at a high turnover rate. New projects from R&D are poorly managed, resulting in many issues in clinical that are swept under the rug.
