    Pros

    Medlab maintained a pretty Corporate environment. Colleagues were nice. They occasionally threw a cookout for employees. Fairly quiet work environment with cubical setting.

    Cons

    Medlab portrayed a pretty textbook definition of Corporate culture that was okay but really could have adopted some more modernized employee retention practices in order to increase morale and retention.

    Advice to Management

    It was known that the company was struggling financially and the employees could sense the tension. Maybe being more open about the situation would have made operations a little smoother. But really there's no advice to management, I think they handled the situation the best they could.

    Pros

    The company was small to have your voice heard

    Cons

    Purchasing of multiple labs within the state and operating under multiple Information Systems led to a very disorganized central receiving and operation site

    I worked at MEDLAB full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They will pay you. They are alwasy hiring due to the very high rate of turnover; most quit w/in the first 2 months.

    Cons

    You will have FORCED over time almost daily, even when you begin work at 2 a.m. If you don't stay as long as they want you to, they will fire you. You must sign up to work OT on weekends. You will be told that you have to stay longer than you signed up for. You are not allowed breaks. If you take a break the supervisors will clock you out and not tell you. You will look as if you have aged 5 years in just a month from lack of sleep and being run into the ground..You run the risk of having a car accident due to lack of sleep or being over worked. If it snows, you will have to drive in that and or wait around in the office until they tell you to go out and begin your rounds. You must work every holiday. No one except managers ever gets to take a major holiday off, so forget about going out of town to visit family ever again. Vacations are very hard to take, as there are many employees and only one can take off at a time. Staff is very unprofessional and workers are upset and angry constantly due to unfair treatment and basically being treated like subhumans. They do not reimburse properly for mileage. JUST SAY NO.

    Advice to Management

    Go out of business. You are unwilling to change.

    I worked at MEDLAB full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Due to the constant stream of specimens, there is always something to do. The employees there are really nice, which is always a perk. The company was always evolving and adapting to the new skills of the laboratory field.

    Cons

    While they always talked about promoting me, they never really followed through. Also, the company went bankrupt.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through on your promotions. Other than that, great work.
