I worked at Quest Diagnostics full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Excellent health benefits and compensation. Middle and lower level managers are competent and the six sigma program seems to be working well within the company.

Cons

extremely bureaucratic and politically motivated senior management. Some areas of spending are way out of control (facilities, corporate contracts). Future direction of the company seems to be up in the air without additional lab acquistions

Advice to Management

a lot of low hanging fruit when it comes to cost savings in spending (contracts, facilities etc)

    I have been working at Quest Diagnostics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very stable job field, good benefits. After 1st year decent amount of time off. Flexible schedule. If not licensed offers CLS school to advance career from lab associate.

    Cons

    High stress, lots of overtime. Advancement can be very politically motivated.
    San Juan Capistrano location is far from everywhere and down an accident prone 2 lane highway.

    Advice to Management

    Give back what you expect form employees, need to have better raises if you want to retain talent.
