    I worked at Genzyme Genetics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I always loved this company. Good benefits, paid vacation, sick , 401(k), good employees, hard workers.

    Cons

    Very little room for advancement, micromanagement, its who you know not what you know.

    Advice to Management

    Let people with ideas help change what could help processes. Better work-life balance. Overtime always a problem. The same people always doing it and the same people always complaining why they cant. Manangement never rewards people who ACTUALLY do the work. Just the ones with titles regardless of what they do.

    Pros

    Many of my coworkers are really great people. I like the work that I perform and the challenges it brings to provide patients with their results.

    Cons

    very little concern with patient care and quality. No flexibility with schedules or personal needs. You have to be very fake and kiss up to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees, they aren't there just to be problems to squash. Try not to talk to us like we are indigent children.

    Pros

    intelligent colleagues, telecommute flexibility, and local manager

    Cons

    low pay, work load, and burnout. Labcorp bought us and has since cut staff, lowered benefits, no raise, increase workload, require BMI for health insurance, and not as great as Genzyme.

    Pros

    Had a good culture. Very patient focused, great coworkers. Had a small company feel to it. Was an overall great place to work

    Cons

    Was difficult to implement changes. Communication between departments was not always great. Limited career opportunities. IT infrastructure was old and outdated. Was acquired and seemed to be losing some of the things that made it a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose the things that made this a great place to work. Communicate with your employees and spend more money on IT.
