I worked at Quest Diagnostics full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Quest Diagnostic is a very well established company that offers a generous compensation package. I enjoyed working here and all the friends and teammates I met. General hours of operation is 9am-5pm M-F. Medical/Dental and Vacation time accrues with each pay period. For the first year of working you can accrue more than 3 weeks vacation time which is unheard of in any organization. It's right behind Busch Gardens and I was fortunate enough to sit by the window to enjoy watching vacationers enjoying the Tampa lime life.

Cons

No sick time and when I caught the flu I brought in a doctor's letter which the supervisor didn't acknowledge because there is a no-fault policy in place. In other words, even if you're in the hospital, you will accrue occurrences for the days you're out, and could possibly be written up (depending on how many occurrences you already have). This is the only down-side to the company.

Advice to Management

Every company should at least hear what concerns the employees have. That's how we learn what we need to do to keep all of us happy...Employees, Employers and Patients alike.

    Pros

    Medical Benefits are at the top of industry for cost and coverage. A very diverse group of people to work with. Employees get free bloodwork results.

    Cons

    All of the company sponsered parties and fun things at work have all but disappeared. The company regards employees more than the supervisors and are quick to appease the frontline employees.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to value your employees more, it is more cost effective to retrain an existing employee than to start over with a new hire in most cases. The peer review process needs serious work to make it right.

    I worked at Quest Diagnostics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fairly good benefits, excellent extra incentives and activities to promote living a healthier life fpr employees, many extra activities for employees to make work environment more fun, strict "no retaliation" policy if there are disagreements with supervisors or managers.

    Cons

    Ridiculous and unfair attendance policy, terrible support system if you become sick or need short term disability, No personal or commom privacy as there are cameras covering all areas of facilities except INSIDE bathrooms. All electronic, phone and computer communications monitored unfairly by co workers ans employees who abuse this and use personal info to harm you.

    Advice to Management

    Review Corporate involvement in decisions regarding health issues. Company claims to offer short term disability benefits, then leave it up to non medical personnel to ALWAYs deny benefits.
