    Pros

    The division of job responsibilities are relatively clear and the compensation package was reasonable before its acquisition by LabCorp.

    Cons

    Poor mamagement of daily activities and no long term planning. Employees and their efforts were not respected. There is the culture of finger-pointing when something goes wrong without real effort in identifying the root causes and in preventing future occurrence. Employees do not have opportunity for cross-function training and thus could hardly increase their marketability even after years of work.

    Pros

    Small facility with close team harmony - mid to lower managment as well as fellow associates. All are driven and wanting to produce a great, quality product. Lots of jumping in to help out when possible

    Cons

    Senior and upper management, in contrast, minimize and invalidate efforts of team. Solutions offered are negated yet individuals are constantly being held against a firing squad and expected/ demanded to produce unrealist results. Lack of knowledge/ignorance of what the ground troops do complicates working relationships. Directions to business practices can change to polar opposites within 72 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Any new business must factor in at least 5 years capital to sustain the company until it takes on it's own life. This means periodically increasing resources to accommodate the growing pains. With no infusion of that type and expecting the talent on hand to keep with the increasing business demands, all the while being critical of the talent, does not bode well for the future. Losen the purse strings, allow the company the resources it needs to meet those unrealistic expectations, become knowledgeable of the roles being perform so the team will have respect. Quit speaking "hot" words, lingo, jargin, exec-spec as if it impresses. It does not when you display ignorance.
