    I have been working at Associated Regional and University Pathologists part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The benefits are great with amazing healtchare, an onsite clinic free to employees and their families, tuition reimbursement for students, as well as pension and profit sharing at a high percentage with no required contribution from the employee.

    Cons

    Work can get fairly stressful and monotonous at times with some work being tedious and technical with the hands and fingers. A lot of time is spent sitting and staring at a screen as well.

    I have been working at Associated Regional and University Pathologists full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The benefits are nearly unmatched at other companies. Incredibly low premiums for health insurance. Onsite wellness center with personal trainers and nutritionists, and a health clinic that is free to employees and their families. I have been supported throughout my time at ARUP by my leadership.

    Cons

    I have seen higher take-home pay at other companies, but with higher insurance premiums, paying for a gym membership, etc. the difference is somewhat negligible.

    I have been working at Associated Regional and University Pathologists full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits, especially health insurance, pension/403B and tuition reimbursement. I'm using this job to get my degree in my preferred field, but their MLS education program is incredible.

    The work can be a bit tedious at times. There is also some office politicking that goes on, but not too much.

    I have been working at Associated Regional and University Pathologists full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It is very apparent that this company cares about employees. Employee retention is very high. Easy to move around departments and be promoted. Even during job cuts due to COVID, this company has stayed away from having to do that.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than most companies, but benefits are great. Good health insurance. Profit sharing has been minimal over the past year.
