    I have been working at Myriad Genetics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong teams; Passion for the Mission and Patients First; Fun company events (summer party, Halloween party, etc) Philanthropy Events; Tuition Reimbursement; On-site gym; Clean, stocked break rooms with free cups, plates, bowls, coffee, tea, ice machines etc; Profit Sharing; 401K match; Great Healthcare benefits, Health fair clinics with flu shots

    Cons

    Change can be difficult for employees that have been here a while. Most departments are running very lean and backfill positions need to be justified.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the employees that are working with Myriad as a career, not just a job. Examine turnover trends and the cost of hiring new employees. Develop better retention programs based on tenure.

    I have been working at Myriad Genetics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have worked here a lot of years, and was promoted up to Manager level. I feel like Myriad treats its employees well. We have great benefits and the team I work with are great, and work here for the right reasons, the patients. I've received a lot of Manager training with the new training program and it's helped a lot.

    Cons

    If you cant adapt to change, then this isn't the place for you. We are always going through change. I've noticed the people that cant handle it end up leaving. From my experience the change is for the better of Myriad. The pay isn't the highest, but I get profit sharing so that makes up for it. I was able to finish my degree and Myriad helped pay for that and they have a great 401k plan.

    Advice to Management

    Take advantage of all the training opportunities Myriad offers. Even if you think you don't need it, I always learn something. Communication is key with a company going through so much change. Go to the townhalls and the seminars, to keep on top of things.

    Pros

    Amazing team, the job is very patient focused, and really requires a lot of problem solving skills. Overall a really good place to work.

    Cons

    It's really difficult to move up in this role, it's all pretty much based on seniority and that's unfortunate. It can be a difficult job to do and is very intense at times, but having such an amazing team to fall back on makes it easier.

    Bureaucratic/political set up

    Advice to Management

    Make sure all voice are not only "heard" but validated and take constructive criticism on how to make this company better. Middle management is the worst at truly taking to heart what needs to be changed.
