    I have been working at Core (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, friendly people, extended lunches

    Cons

    Sharky sales tactics, bad leadership

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone doesnt sell a lot, doesnt make them a bad rep. Listen to the reps more as they know more than you think they do

    Pros

    There are no pros to working at CORE Diagnostics in Palo Alto. It is owned and operated by people from India who have absolutely no understanding on how to run and operate a business.

    They hire people for low pay with no benefits. They are performing clinical trials with 3rd world country standards and presenting themselves as being a CLIA Accredited lab so they can hide behind this to make it appear that they have quality standards in place.

    Cons

    Dishonest to customers, had been announcing on their website as well as LinkedIn profile that they were a CLIA Accredited lab when they are not. Had been presenting to potential clients that they are a CLIA Accredited lab when they are not. Would not listen to my advice when telling them that they can't claim to be a CLIA accredited lab when they are not. The CEO only says, I hear your concerns; but he did nothing about it. CMS found out they were falsely claiming to be CLIA Accredited and made them remove this from their Website and LinkedIn in page.

    The lab is deplorable, broken or inoperable equipment laying everywhere, no quality systems in place, lab personnel are not trained in good pipetting techniques and lack basic pipette care knowledge. Lab is filthy and no one cares. They don't have a good system for storing clinical trial samples. They have one -80° freezer that is full to the brim and samples are constantly having to be shuffled into a cooler with dry ice. The CEO does not understand the importance of having proper sample storage. The clinical trial samples are not managed with tractability. Almost on a weekly basis you will find the team scourging for lost samples. H and E stained tissue slide are lying around all over the place in boxes with no rhyme or reason as to who sent them, the type of tissue sample, no master list tying the sample to the slide or location in the box. You can find a draw where one box is spilling out H and E slides all over the place and even onto the carpet under the last drawer in the filing cabinet. The lab is comparable what you would find in a 3rd world country.

    Advice to Management

    Deceiving customers by announcing that you are a CLIA Accredited lab is not a smart business tactic.

    Pros

    You get to work on a lot of different projects. You'll never be bored working at Core.

    Cons

    Lack of stability -- pushing into new areas all the time is cool, but it would be nice to know that it is all going to pay out and we can count on a steady income for awhile.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going.
