    Pros

    great health insurance, health-minded company w/ workout room, healthy food choices, good work-life balance for most

    Cons

    management feels very directionless right now. scrambling for lots of quick wins instead of looking at long term plans. Morale is pretty low right now and it's hard to get a sense of what the long term plan is at Myriad. Promotions are hard to get unless you are in sales or part of a business unit. Salary isn't very competitive for a lot of positions here and it's hard to get a decent raise once you're in.

    Advice to Management

    Be more competitive with salaries and promote more people from a variety of departments. More training for managers so they can better mentor and coach their employees.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Decent starter wages, friendly work environment. Many shifts are very nice, 3-12 hour shifts or 4-10 hour shifts are fairly common in lab jobs.

    Cons

    Virtually impossible to advance past a certain point in either wage or job. Most jobs are extremely monotonous and routine. Essentially as a lab tech you will babysit one robot or another and that's it's. Nothing is challenging, stimulating, or different. Advancement is extremely stagnant, and work moral is often very low. Few incentives to work hard.

    Pros

    Great job for people who want to make a difference, strong science behind products

    Cons

    Company is unresponsive to market changes and demands, weak mid level leadership at the mother ship, salary and bonus structure make it very easy to leave this company

    Advice to Management

    Increase salaries, stop making excuses for not responding to customer demands

    Pros

    Benefits are above average. Health insurance plan is great. I only pay $90/mo out of pocket for my family. HSA contribution is great. The company is constantly looking for new perks and benefits for its employees. It is a low stress work environment. Great coworkers. CEO and management are impressive. The company is it for the long haul and has a good outlook. Very respectful in regards to work/life balance.

    Cons

    High turnover in tech positions. Lower turnover in higher positions which can make advancement tough. Parking is becoming more and more difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Stop in the labs and say hello every once in a while.

    I have been working at Myriad Genetics full-time

    Pros

    Myriad labs have a relaxed atmosphere. It is nice to work with intelligent and interesting people. 3 12.5 hour shifts per week and 4 days off is an amazing schedule. There is usually overtime available, but it isn't ever expected of you. Also, plenty of PTO and paid holidays. The health insurance rates just increased, but it is still the best around and it is great coverage!

    Cons

    The work leaves much to be desired- it's not very stimulating. Not much room for growth. Communication and relations between shifts needs improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to open communication and quell the finger pointing between shifts. Increases wages and/or bonuses!

    Pros

    Amazing company to work for. Great benefits and they want to see their employees grow in their career paths. Great management.

    Cons

    Pay could be a little better. They are hiring external candidates with minor experience what almost the same wage as candidates with a lot more experience.

    Advice to Management

    Work on wages to reflect correctly depending on years of experience. Employees talk about their wage, even if it is frowned upon, so there is no hiding of those details.

    Pros

    Awesome benefits for insurance for not too expensive. Brand new gym and break rooms. Amazing supervisors in some labs and plenty of PTO given

    Cons

    The base pay is too low so there are many nightshirt workers that cannot afford a pay cut to move to Dayshift
