    A company with potential for growth

    Pros

    Good location for people who live around the central part of Southern California, competitive benefits, salaries are not great but are still somewhat comparable, employees are generally friendly

    Cons

    Uncertainty of job stability at times due to various reasons that include, but are not limited to restructuring of organization by mother company, Quest Diagnostics, silos between depts, lack of interaction between people of different depts for certain people based on their positions, and lack of company-wide activities compared to before.

    Bad Management Staff

    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.

    Untapped Potential

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn something new every day. Most of the staff are fun and smart people. Opportunities to work across departments. Plenty of work.

    Cons

    Several reorganizations a year. Top management disconnected from those at lower levels. No new products being released. Quest purchased Focus to buy their tests and new products have slowed to almost nothing. Many good hardworking employees have been hired and leave quickly once they see the culture. This used to be a great company and was a "Top 10 Midsize Company in the OC". Now it is the opposite.

    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.

    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.
