    I have been working at GeneDx full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The benefits are good and 401k matching is decent. Great job if you're just out of college and need some experience under your belt.

    Cons

    Pay is definitely entry level and there's no chance for a raise or promotion until you've been with the company for a year. They've swindled people into accepting positions they are overqualified for because employee retention in the "less ideal" labs is so low. Almost everyone there is trying to move elsewhere. They'll mention all the great pluses to working there, but if you work anything other than 9-5, you get the...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and recognize their frustrations. Morale events don't work when you require employees to make up the time or use vacation hours.

    I worked at GeneDx full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You can form good bonds with the people you interact with on a daily basis. Really awesome experience at an entry-level position. Got me into graduate school. Pretty decent work-life balance

    Cons

    Too much political BS within the companies. A lot of employees are overlooked based on favoritism. Smaller departments are often the guinea pigs for terrible workflow changes. Lack of communication with upper-level management and parent/grandparent companies. Non-constructive criticism comes from co-workers rather than supervisors. We are paid a pathetic salary compared to competitors. Considering the cost of living in...

    Advice to Management

    MORE COMMUNICATION. A lot of the time, lower-level employees were not aware of policy changes until we were getting reprimanded for not following them (it's hard to follow when you aren't aware). Similarly, the employee communications emails are overwhelming and most people just send them straight to their trash. Make them shorter, easier to read, and worth reading.
