Pros

Benefits - Our benefits are better than most companies

Cons

Pay - Pay is good, but does not match current market according to the BLS
HR - HR is not independent of the parent and cannot act on their own - causes employee conflict
ATM System - Current attendance system is a negative for employees who do their part

Advice to Management

Go back to leaving attendance up to the Sup/Mgr to track, get rid of the ATM system. This was designed for juveniles, not hard working adults.
Executive Leadership - Support the front line workers visibly and visit with employees on the floor more often.
I love my job and this company, I have passed up other offers to stay here because of our Executive Management team and the dynamic of this company. It is an excellent place to work, thank you.

    I have been working at Sonora Quest Laboratories full-time

    Pros

    Our CEO's mission is to be an industry driver of technology, rather than a follower. SQL is involved in several pilots to define and develop the best patient and physician experience. Employees who embrace the pace feel energized and positively driven by the mission and values.

    Cons

    There are so many changes in healthcare, the pressures can seem insurmountable.

    Advice to Management

    Our industry is faced with the same brain-drain resulting from retiring talent with which all industries struggle. Our company has a fledgling knowledge management process, but the program doesn't get top-down support. When people in key positions leave, they are rarely asked by their leaders to make the effort to proactively transfer their knowledge. In this area, SQL seems to be sticking their head in the sand like most other technology-driven companies.


  2. "I love the culture at SQL. We live our values, and positively affect patient's lives everyday."

    Pros

    Sonora Quest has great benefits, leadership training, community service focus, quality awards, Six Sigma focus, and is all accross the state. I feel so lucky to work here. We are growing in a tough economy, something not most Arizona companies can say.

    Cons

    It is hard to find downsides. The company has had mandatory PTO, but they did this to preserve jobs. Some of the IT systems need to be improved as well.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for offering leadership training. This has helped me in my job. Please keep listening to the employees for more great ideas. Good job on getting the Ethics awards.
