    I have been working at Focus Diagnostics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people, easy parking, flexible schedules. Now under new management since DiaSorin purchased Focus Diagnostics from Quest. Free on-site exercise class after work, Tues-Thurs.

    Cons

    Insurance benefits are not as great as they used to be, but that's not isolated to this company.

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

    Pros

    Make your own schedule within reason. Great entry level job if you have no experience. Commutable from North SD County Orange County and Riverside County.

    Cons

    Like high school. Managers claim your incompetent when their incompetent themselves. Lots of backstabbing by other associates. No room for growth. Hire temps and get rid of most of them within a few months.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and get better management

    Pros

    Good experience. Good starting pay. Hours somewhat flexible. Nice big parking lot and building. Facility seems neat and clean.

    Cons

    It's just awful being here. The company morale is down after the Diasorin buyout, but I'll add a list of what is happening now.

    High turnover.
    Low raises. and I mean LOW.
    Very hard to get promoted even if you work hard.
    Backorders are piled up and nobody cares to get to the bottom of the root cause.
    Being lazy is okay here.
    Some days are impossible to do the job without the right equipment.
    ZERO communication between upstairs management and downstairs technicians.

    Advice to Management

    None, they don't listen nor care.

    Pros

    well known company with good name. looks for real talents and grow them. Provide good leadership and good benefits

    although it is a good company there is no room for advancement it becomes just a resume builder

    Advice to Management

    upper management does not value good leadership in its managers . They prefer bully style manager who intimidate to get the job done

    I have been working at Focus Diagnostics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, some people are nice at lower level, clean and well maintained facility. The compensation is industry average. The work/life balance is good.

    Cons

    Very high turnover. Every month we have at least 1-2 people leave. I think last year we lost about 30 people. No one wants to stay with this company. The Sr. management is horrible to work with. They have no idea how to grow the business or how to retain the top talent people. The HR ladies are clueless, they don't do anything. Everything has to go through corporate. I feel bad for DiaSorin who paid $300M for this company. They will need to bring their top talent people because the one they got are not going to turn this company around. I strongly suggest them to fire all the Sr. management staff as soon as they close the deal.

    Advice to Management

    All the ladies in management MUST leave because they have no talent to turn this company around. Everything is done reactively. We wait until we have complaints and then do the recall. They need to focus on Quality not Quantity.

    Pros

    Well-organized, well-maintained facility. Multiple break rooms. Plentiful parking. Health-conscientious environment with regularly scheduled, voluntary employee workout sessions. Nothing else to really praise them for...

    Cons

    Work consists of long hours of mundane, repetitive tasks that left my hands blistered and bleeding

    Insincere, back-stabbing co-workers who judge and bully those who don't fit into their social groups

    Temps are seen as disposable, replaceable

    Management will smile through their teeth at you and discuss your future at the company while plotting with others for your termination
