I have been working at Quest Diagnostics full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

TOP time was great if you'd been there for awhile.
Pay could have been better.

Cons

Horrible management.
HR was not help, so you are at the mercy of your manager.
Overwhelming stress due to the amount of work you are required to do, while constantly being hounded about the overtime, whlie others are treated with kid gloves and aren't required to do as much work. But if you slow down, you get written up for it!! They do NOT treat people fairly and equally!

Advice to Management

Look closely at your managers during this corporate restructuring. Are they really doing their job appropriately? Are there complaints constantly about them? Do THEY take accountability for their mistakes, or are they constantly blaming other people? Do you get half-truths when talking with them? Perhaps one-on-ones with employees and upper management would help (NOT with HR). You can listen to the employees' concerns and tell what is BS and what is truly a concern. No one in my department ever feels like we are heard, even with the employee satisfaction survey. The only thing we ever saw come out of that was the cafeteria opening on night shift!! It is not help to those of us being required to work our fingers to the bone while other people can manage to do less than the minimum but because they are someone's buddy, they get preferrential treatment.

    I have been working at Quest Diagnostics as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People you are working with are very nice and friendly and helpful, and as an intern, the working load is not that much at Quest. My supervisor is a master in this area but still very open to all perceptions and views. And they are very willing to share their experience with you.

    Cons

    Great to work with many experts in this field but almost no colleagues of my age at my department in Quest's headquarter building. And the work for an intern is not that challengeable.
