      Pros

      Flexible schedule (PTO requests usually approved) Great smaller department managers

      Cons

      I was very excited to began working here, as it was my first "lab" job straight from school. Definitely gained experience but that's about it. Many people complain about lack of money from a job, but EMSL is REALLY BAD! The raises are too tiny (2.5% max), and they drag their feet giving it to you (months for evaluation feedback) and this is if they even give you a raise. Benefits are pretty wack and everyone complains about the health insurance. There is little to no opportunity for advancement, but always more and more work to do for the same base pay. Our yearly employee survey falls on deaf ears, management does not care because they're all receiving way better benefit packages than those of us in the lab putting in all the hard work. Senior management (aka the kids, husbands, wives etc.) walk right past the hard workers from the labs, in the hallways and say nothing, not even fake a friendly smile. CEO does the same thing! Just rude. Nepotism is real in this place and even friends and neighbors of senior management get their unqualified kids hired or send in samples that are treated like bricks of gold. Like previous reviews stated, bad plumbing was blamed on staff. First the women (blaming sanitary napkins and tampons) then the men. Now they're getting on everyone about parking placards in the lot. Priorities are really jacked in this place. Good workers have been forced out due to lack of appreciation and lack of pay...when instead some of the directors and managers should go instead!! Just gain your experience, pay a couple of bills or two, then resign!!! The turnover rate is HIGH here!!!

      Resume builder for recent grad

      Jun 20, 2019 - Microscopist in Cinnaminson, NJ
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      This job/company will boost your resume with some corporate laboratory experience. They boast of flexible scheduling. Great co-workers. Large, well-known company with opportunities to relocate. Some cross-training available. Requested time off is always met.

      Cons

      Little to no upward movement available. Training periods last much longer than implied in the interview, during which you get paid less. Training goes beyond the advertised two week course described in job postings and instead can last months. This is something to consider if you are not a recent grad living with your parents. Minimal benefits. Health insurance plans are quite poor, unless you opt for the most expensive, in which case you will not see much of a pay check. The "flexible scheduling" is mostly a half truth. You have wiggle room with clock-in and out times, but management takes notice and will hold it against you if they feel you aren't doing enough samples in a day. OT is in the form of "Bonus Days," which is only offered to certain employees, supposedly based on performance. I have seen these being withheld from some well performing employees based on small infractions that management decides to take notice of, while other poorly performing employees committing the same infractions go unnoticed. They consider these "Bonus Days" as a sort of gift, while in reality the lab is extremely behind and needs the help to get back on schedule. Also, if you do not consistently partake in OT management may stop offering them to you. There is a large communication gap between all members of the lab. From trainers to experienced analysts, to lower management, and especially upper management. The lack of communication is well known and well discussed among all levels of employees, but the structure is such that those put in places to listen are already over worked and hold no authority to make a change. It can always be chocked up to, "We'll see what upper management has to say." There is a huge push by the non-laboratory side to increase work performance, but this comes without any input from the laboratory. Incentive programs are implemented without ever spending a day in the laboratory or fully understanding the scope of an average work day. When these poorly thought out competition-based incentive programs don't work as planned they use laboratory employees to track the time use of others and report on each individual. The concerns seem to stem from a few bad apples that could be ruled out with minimal investigation, but there seems to be an avoidance of confrontation at all costs by management. Instead, they accuse all employees of wasting time and utilize a fear based environment to try and increase work output.

      Pros

      Flexible schedule. I've stayed busy most days and that makes time fly.

      Cons

      Average compensation, long days, tons of work or none at all, management fails to do much managing, outrageously expensive healthcare coverage (it's out of the question for us because it would be $500 per pay period for myself and my 2 children), no 401k matching, the chain of command in management is confusing (I have 3 supervisors and no clue who to approach under which circumstance), and way too much pressure.
