Disapproves of CEO

I worked at TestAmerica full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Insurance, benefits, full time work.

Cons

The company is in a bad way financially and is always sacking people. After I got sacked they offered me my job back, (thankfully I didn't take) then shortly they laid off even more people than before.

Advice to Management

Um... good luck.

    I have been working at TestAmerica full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    PTO accrual rate. Pretty flexible schedule. The people I work with are good as well, but then that's always been true for any job I've had. The pay isn't awful but I doubt mine will increase soon.

    Cons

    The culture of everyone not caring and everyone knowing it is terrible. The lab is so hungry for revenue that they will accept terrible samples that ruin our expensive glassware in a single test! ARGH!

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to get us to care. I cannot hold too much pride or interest in my work. I can't have pride in the way my laboratory is run or is kept. I have been at this company for such a short time to be so absolutely exasperated.

    This would seem so much more important at least if it weren't awfully apparent that the interest lies primarily in getting the most out of clients for tests that don't make sense--tests that are seemingly not well understood by either side of the transcation--and that often are handled haphazardly at the analytical level by people who have no other ambition than a bigger paycheck.

    Blah.
