    I worked at Pathnostics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    CEO does a great job motivating and making each employee feel like a true team

    Cons

    Very young company and very young upper management, specifically supervisors. They may be fairly new at being supervisors so periodic training to grow their abilities might be needed

    Advice to Management

    For the amount of work that is done the pay rate is atrocious. Not a lot of respect given to those in lower positions from upper management. I think there is effort in regards to fostering a “family” atmosphere, however it’s diluted with immature coworkers and supervisors that may need further training in order to properly motivate and strengthen their team.

    I worked at Pathnostics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Immaculate latoratory space and a great place to learn the basics of just about everything within a laboratory space if you’re motivated enough. Catered food and snacks often. Competitive pay for non-licensed technicians with little or no work experience. Awesome laboratory team and great coworkers. Benefits package is average.

    Cons

    Drama and communication issues with upper management creates a stressful workplace at times. Very high turn over rate - you pretty much have to wait for someone to quit in order to even be *considered* for a promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more guidance to employees through educational opportunities or scholarships. Up salaries for more renention.

    I have been working at Pathnostics (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture is pretty great and everyone I’ve worked with has been fun. You have to put in time if you’re looking for any upward movement. The operations management are the only shining lights within all of management

    Cons

    The president shows favoritism and it is clearly shown. Pay could definitely be better and they say it’ll change but I’m not holding my breath.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees equally.

    Pros

    Great colleagues to work with not just in your department but with other departments as well. It's also a great place to get your foot in the door and gives you the opportunity to gain experience.

    Cons

    Terrible upper management - can cause a lot of stress on the departments. As a result there were times when processes were disorganized. People were taken advantage of (in terms of workload) and overworked. Turnaround rate was high.
