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

Pros

Excellent Medical, Dental and Vision Insurance; Excellent Pay for Similar positions in other companies; Flexible Schedule; caring managers; Mom and Pop atmosphere, and everyone knows each other.

Cons

Practically no upward advancement and it is very difficult to be moved to new projects; upper management is stingy about hiring where there is a need for more workers; the parking situation is horrendous and requires better management; new projects are rushed without concern for trouble shooting which leads to issues with the project.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Bio-Reference Labs full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The medical benefits and all the employee discounts are the real reasons why I am still working for this billion dollar company.

    Cons

    There is too much diversity, too much favoritism, no advancement unless you kiss someone's butt or sleep with them. The raises are an insult to us as working human beings. When there is an opportunity to try to move up or should I say transfer to a better department, they give it to someone else or make you wait for a year or so

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is look over your managers and supervisors, especially in the transportation department. Very sneaky, and deceiving

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

    Pros

    Steady work and good benefits Something to put on a resume.

    Cons

    Mandatory weekends and without rotating shifts, The day shift is a skeleton crew but the over night is packed with people because they only hire for nights. Focus on work output over quality. The pay is below par even with night differential. This is a revolving door company.
