    I have been working at Monogram Biosciences full-time

    Pros

    The work enviroment is very supportive and friendly, the upper management is very focused on delivering high quality products to customers, the working hours are flexible.

    Cons

    Limited company sponsored social events, however, people tend to form friendship easily and socialize on their own.

    Advice to Management

    Management works very hard to keep the company running and improving the services to the customers, it'll be great to see they work harder to improve employee's benefits more.

    I have been working at Monogram Biosciences full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Easy to cross-train.
    Employees mostly friendly.
    Big enough to learn from different departments, small enough to know everyone (~300 people on-site).
    Managers are flexible with time off and work-life balance.

    Cons

    The average annual salary increase is 2%, and the pay is bad to begin with.
    Promotions are practically impossible.
    Since the LabCorp acquisition, morale has been very low due to layoffs, attrition, and reduction of benefits.
    A lot of people seem to like working here because it is easy rather than a good career move.

    Advice to Management

    Don't show favoritism among employees.
    Try to be professional.
    Be honest with your employees.

    I worked at Monogram Biosciences full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My former bosses here actually know their employees and the work they do (with one exception). Unlike today's common practice of hiring inexperienced outside supervisors who know NOTHING about doing actual work, Monogram promoted from within. There are some outsiders who were taken on, and you can definitely tell the difference it makes having someone who understands the work that is actually done on. Outside supervisors need to learn the work their employees do. Otherwise, they will never earn any respect and will not be able to manage them effectively.

    Our VP/my former manager was excellent at giving time off for family emergencies, and I will be forever grateful to her. My former supervisor had a superhuman memory and was one of the best people I know at scheduling and understanding his employees.

    Cons

    After the LabCorp buyout, pretty much everything great about the company dissolved. Benefits were slashed, people were laid off, more people left, and hardly any were replaced. Workload effectively doubled and pay was cut due to massive slash of benefits (roughly $50/month to over $400/month for a family).

    Advice to Management

    Not much I can say here since Monogram has been taken over by LabCorp, and their only bottom line is to make money, not make employees happy. Train your new supervisors better.

    Pros

    Motivated to work independently. I always found ways to solve payer problems by contacting the right people.

    Cons

    Trying to figure out a way to get thru the day to day work with 10 people as to 20 that would've helped more.

    Advice to Management

    Work with employee strengths and not focus on their weaknesses.

    coworkers are all nice and friendly, treat each other as a family, they are party people ;-) but they make sure all works done

    Cons

    after it was acquired by labcorp benefits are cut down and the environment changed a lot..no place to grow they will hire people from outside than promoting their employees.

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

    Pros

    -Great work-life balance
    -Bosses are flexible with days-off etc.
    -Work is easy and somewhat engaging
    -Workers are friendly
    -Pay is OK, but not great
    -Willing to train

    This is a great "stepping-stone" job. If you are a new grad or don't have any experience in a molecular lab, go for it. They are willing to train, which is great and rare now a days. Get your year of experience and move on.

    Cons

    -Insurance is expensive
    -Raises are abysmal
    -NO room for advancement
    -Labcorp shows NO employee appreciation
    -DEAD END job
    -Workers are lazy and don't really care about the work

    The biggest problem with this job is they are not very open to new people. This place has been around a while and most of the employees have been working with each other for 10+ years. Unless you're a middle-aged Filipino woman, you're not really going to fit in or be part of the group. And rules are enforced with one group (mainly new people), but not really enforced with the older employees. It's more annoying then anything. Like I said, if you need the experience, get in, get what you need and get out.

    Advice to Management

    Be more fair to ALL employees. Show some employee appreciation. Promote people based on work performance rather then who's been there the longest.
