      I worked at Monogram Biosciences full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Everyone at minimum has a BS degree Location Sarah and Chris try their hardest. They keep you up as best they can. The only reason that place is still together is them. They look at company mandates and there are multitudes, and filter them. Some managers in other departments have a very strict approach. This is San Francisco. Regardless of where the headquarters are people here are educated and expect to be treated...

      Cons

      Turnover, and training new people. Turnover is worst than Jack in the Box. Panera keeps workers linger. Retention is horrible. Lab workers are treated like machines. The instrumentation is sophisticated. Intense concentration to methods, a requirement. Analytics and data interpretation. Punching a time clock. Personal initiative critical to perform well. However you're treated like you work at a sandwich shop. ...

      Advice to Management

      Recognize what your dealing with. Most basic lab technicians graduated from prestigious universities. You're going to flame them for taking a 20min break? Dump the time clocks and get real about compensation. Many assays are novel expect mistakes, upgrade the facility! It's located in easily the premium area of South City Biotech. There's a lagoon 20' from the door. With a cool walking path . Inside the facility is...

      Pros

      - nice co-workers - work usually isn't too stressful

      Cons

      -pay, it's hard to retain people for more than a year or two for this reason -cutting expenses like paper towels that are as thin as kleenex

      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.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at Monogram Biosciences full-time for 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 for 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...

      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.

      I worked at Monogram Biosciences

      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.
