    I have been working at Bio-Reference Labs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Benefits!
    Good 401k match

    Cons

    Management has noticeable favoritism
    OverWorked and underpaid unless you are one of the chosen few.

    A lot of backstabbing. Those they say are your friends are not!

    Advice to Management

    Promote within. There are a lot of hard working people within your company that feel unappreciated. A “Good Job” every once in a while would be nice.

    I worked at Bio-Reference Labs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work independently.
    Dr office hours.
    Weekends off.
    You may get put in a great Dr office that treats you really well (also may not..)

    Cons

    With the change of new supervison on the Arizona territory came lack of many things. The biggest issue as I left was communication. It nearly impossible to get ahold of your direct supervisor but you will get yelled at if you go to anyone else besides her for anything.
    Often times emails, texts calls would go unanswered. Not for hour or days, but flat out unanswered despite the severity of the situation.

    No "team" aspect to the company.

    No raises company wide in 2018.

    Getting spoke to rudely by higher up.

    Never seeing supervisor.

    Never enough coverage for PTO, sick days etc.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees with respect.
    Get back to people in a timely fashion, ignoring contact is probably one of the rudest action I can think of from a supervisor.
    Get some help when your territory starts to grow out of control!
