I have been working at Sonora Quest Laboratories full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great benefits
Decent pay
Positive work environment and coworker relationships
Good communication
An excellent company to start and grow your career and to further your experience in the field of Medical Lab Science.

Cons

Sometimes there is to much trickle down from upper management to management to the tech. The current state of Healthcare Reform is causing a higher than normal stress level and morale is definitely being affected.

Advice to Management

Upper management should visit the individual labs much more often (currently as little as once a year) and try to talk to people on a more singular level and not at large meetings.

    Pros

    Flexible shifts available and locations throughout the state. Management has experience in the lab and is helpful in dealing with issues that arise.

    Cons

    It is very difficult to move up in the company. There is no emphasis placed on education for promotions, only experience.

    Advice to Management

    Work with employee's so they have the knowledge and experience to move up and excel. Accept education as a positive in addition to experience.


  2. "Overall, this is a decent place to work."

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

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good, and the work environment is acceptable. Management is good at the location where I work, although not all locations can say the same. Because there are several work locations throughout the Valley, there are plenty of job opportunities available and the potential to transfer if that becomes necessary.

    Cons

    The pay is not very competitive, especially for certain positions. The benefits are decent for now, but keep getting cut due to the poor economy. It seems that there are constant staffing issues with phlebotomy, leaving half the lab short-staffed, overworked, and therefore not always able to meet TAT goals. These revolving door staffing problems can likely be traced back to poor phlebotomy management, which is a shame since losing "good" phlebs negatively impacts everyone in the lab. Also, management in general seems to be a little too focused on education, rather than work experience, leaving many good, experienced techs with no potential for job advancement unless they are willing and able to go back to college.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see more focus on keeping the good, hard-working employees we currently have, which might include giving better raises and other incentives to stay, such as reinstating tuition reimbursement, etc. I believe this would save us time and money in training costs, new employee learning curves, etc.
