    I have been working at Myriad Genetics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There's a lot to like. 1. Flexible work environment, good approach to work-life balance - Everyone is very comfortable working remotely so it's easy to have a mix of in-office and remote days and work in a way that is optimal for you. 2. Good resource management - There is enough time to be thoughtful about your work and have the ability to plan. 3. Talented team members and supportive environment - Everyone is...

    Cons

    There aren't many cons, especially when balanced out with the pros of working here, but for some prospective employees, it may be worth noting that Myriad has: 1. Less competitive pay - Myriad isn't far off but could be a bit better. 2. Mediocre health benefits - Given all the other companies I've worked at in Silicon Valley, the health benefits at Myriad definitely pale in comparison. Many companies (even the large...

    Advice to Management

    Continue to gather and incorporate feedback from team members and support autonomy. Continue to promote great work-life balance and a flexible work environment – I think this is a huge enticement and competitive advantage for Myriad to attract and retain top talent. Push for better health benefits for employees.

    Myriad cares about their employees and they do not need to say it - they SHOW it. They provide you with all the tools and resources that you need to be successful in your particular role, but yet they also let you make it into your own. So thankful to be a part of this incredible company!

    I worked at Myriad Genetics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Easy money, you do not need a brain to work here. If you're looking to "coast" along and zone out then work here. Gym. They feed you sometimes. 401k match. Free cheap coffee. Alot of young people. Good quality products, albeit super expensive.

    Cons

    Naive, overworked and green management who are incompetent and enable office drama. Atmosphere of constant badmouthing and throwing others under the bus, the more you complain about others the better off you are. Atmosphere of hyper political correctness, people surviving by pretending to be offended at something harmless in order to claw their way to the top of the victim-hood pyramid. Rules are not enforced equally...

    I have been working at Myriad Genetics full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Benefits are competitive. They make work life balance flexible. Easy to get days off. By testing DNA for cancer causing gene mutations we help patients get the results they need and our work helps their families generations. Very fulfilling.

    Cons

    I wish there was a work from home option!!!
