    -pay is good

    -fulfilling job + career path for those interested in pursuing the medical laboratory science field
    -lots of people to trade shifts with
    -easy to understand career ladder
    -easy movement to other career paths

    Cons

    -Time-off is hard to get if you haven’t accrued enough PTO
    -Requires you to be more social to move up and get shift trades
    -Must learn to concentrate
    -10-key proficiency, typing ability helps A LOT because you’re at a computer all day
    -stay physically active at the on-site gym or elsewhere because you’re pretty much sitting the rest of the time here
    -long hours
    -make sure you start listening to music or podcasts because the hours get long and you don’t want to be bored

    -promote more physical activity for employees

    Pros

    Not a whole lot to say. Great employees (for the most part) and a lot of squandered potential

    Cons

    Company lacks vision, senior leadership are inept. Poor decisions are being made on a daily basis. After 15 years of working for what used to be a great company, I am actively looking for a new job.

    ARUP’s executive team is full of idiots! They lack vision, tenacity and are ill fit to do their jobs. The company has so much potential but will never be able to realize it under the current leadership. Any company who cycles through CEOs as fast as ARUP should tell you something. ARUP is at a choking point. Employee retention at an all time low with little to no desire to rectify the issues. Employees aren’t even able to do their job because of these issues!

    Bottom line, if you are looking at a position here, run away! If you like to be overworked as a direct result of stupidity as the executive level, this is the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Do the company a favor and quit! Let people who are more capable run the company!

    I worked at Associated Regional and University Pathologists full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits were ok at the time. Tuition reimb. was nice

    Cons

    Pay (although shortly after I left, they gave everyone base raises), management

    Advice to Management

    Promotions should be given to the most qualified, not the most popular. Several times, employees were passed over for promotions, because they 1. had a baby or 2. didn't have a "friend" in management
